Book to Film

Saw a tweet the other day from “Focus Features” about #NationalBookLoversDay with the question – “What is your favorite book to film adaption?” My immediate response was, LOTR, Hobbit, Godfather and The Princess Bride.

But of course I immediately realized that can’t be all. So the search begins.
