15 Books You Didn’t Realize Were Movies: Part 1


To read or to watch? That is the question!

There’s a constant battle between book-lovers and movie-lovers about whether a book is better than the movie or vice versa. Personally, I prefer to watch the movie over reading the book (don’t tell any of my co-workers) because I’m more attracted to visuals instead of just reading about the story.

The listicle below is Part 1 of 2 about books you didn’t realize were actually movies, too. The great part is the Niles Public Library has many formats of the title for you to enjoy.
