Day 14 of #GratefulReads is #FavoriteBookToMovieAdaptation I had to go with The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien which is a fantastic story made into an amazing movie trilogy by Peter Jackson. 🧙🏻‍♂️🧝🏻‍♂️

Anna Karenina | Leo Tolstoy
post image

I'm usually really critical of movies that are based on books, especially if it is a book that I love dearly. But the Anna Karenina film that came out a few years ago was just brilliantly done. It was true to the story and characters, and added an artistic flair that was beautiful and intriguing. 💕📚

TheSpineView @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks No worries! Fantasy is not for everyone! 😊 2mo
Andrew65 @TheSpineView Not watched this yet despite loving Lord of the Rings. How do you think it compared to Lord of the Rings. 2mo

#favoritebooktomovieadaptation You really have to ask? 😄 I guess it‘s only #humannature to long for home. And some of the magic in Oz seems a bit like #weirdscience #movember #gratefulreads #namastenovember #multitasking 🌪🌈👠

OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 2mo
LibrarianRyan Nope. Didn't have to ask. 😁 We have signed first editions in our Illinois Authors collection. 2mo

Eggs Great triple👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻I‘m an Oz fan from the get go! All my life I wanted to see those ruby slippers and finally I did at the age of 60 at the Smithsonian👠👠 2mo
rubyslippersreads @Eggs I‘ve seen them in person twice; both times I cried. @BookieMary also took me to see Dorothy‘s dress when it was on display for auction. (No, I didn‘t buy it. 😊) 2mo
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan That‘s something I‘ve never seen, though I have seen an unsigned first. 😊🌈 2mo
LibrarianRyan @rubyslippersreads They were given to our library years ago. I don't think the entire series is signed but many are. I would grab pictures, but they are locked on display and I don't have keys. 2mo
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan Thanks for the thought, though. 😊🌈👠 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I couldn‘t have guessed!!! 🤣🤣🤣 2mo

Sophie's Choice | William Styron

OriginalCyn620 I‘ve seen the movie but haven‘t read the book yet. 2mo
EadieB @OriginalCyn620 The book is really good. 2mo
marleed I recently thrifted an old hardcopy of this book. I really want to get to it. I track my books 9 at a time and I‘m finally disciplined to read at least one of my books for every 2 lib loan. I‘m thinking in 2020 I should try to include at least one book with a 10+ year publishing date. 2mo
EadieB @marleed I am amazed at your discipline. I have to stop reading so many library books and concentrate on the ones I own. I think that will be my goal for 2020. I think you should read Sophie's Choice soon as I think you will definitely enjoy it. 2mo
