Books, Movies and TV

When books are made into movies for the big screen or little screen, we often see a surge in their popularity, even if the book has languished on the shelf for a while.  It’s nice to see them revived and discovered by a new audience, and even better that people who are going to see them in different versions STILL want to read the book! (Because the books are often better, right?)

Recently, we’ve seen a great demand for THE GIVER by Lois Lowry, due to the movie’s release this summer, and for George R.R. Martin’s GAME OF THRONES series because of the tremendous popularity of the HBO series. Up next?  We’re expecting Gillian Flynn’s GONE GIRL to start being requested like crazy again when the movie comes out this October, and who knows, maybe even a few extra requests for Joe Hill’s HORNS upon its US movie debut on Halloween.

Do you request books once you’ve seen a movie/tv series, or do you like to read the books first? Let us know!
