Over the last few years there has been a run on making a book into a movie - Harry Potter, Eragon, Lord of the Rings, etc, etc, etc. The latest one that I know of is Stardust, which is from a young adult book (sad to say but as a YA librarian, I didn't know that fact until after the movie came out...)
Anyhoo...Two of my favorite movies came from books - Diana Palmer's Diamond Girl and Sarah Bird's The Boyfriend School with Steve Guttenburg-sigh. I will confess that both of these movies are on my must-watch-every-few-weeks shelf.
What are your favorite books that became movies? Which one was better, the movie or the book?
