Whitney from Pop Candy (one of my favorite pop fiction blogs), posted a link to this article that lists 21 books that could make great movies. What do you think about movie versions of books? What elements make for the best translations?

In my experience, I’d prefer to keep to the book. That being said, I love Gone With the Wind’s movie counterpart. It’s one of my all-time favorites. Currently, I’m interested in seeing what will happen with The Other Boleyn Girl. I will go to see the movie no matter what. I just hope I don’t walk out wishing I hadn’t.

Even if you’re not interested in film, you should check out this list anyway for good reading ideas. I’ve only read two of the 21 books myself (Middlesex and The Time Traveler’s Wife). If you’ve read any of the others, let me know. I’d be interested in hearing more about them.

Have a great weekend! I’m off to see The Wiggles with my girls tonight. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m looking forward to it. That Anthony sure is cute and the girls and I love to sing in our own Big Red Car.
