Heading to the Picture Show!

I put up a new display at our Ravenna location this weekend.  It was time to say goodbye to Valentine's Day and hello to The Oscars.

In a way at least.

We're celebrating all the great books that have been turned into movies recently, or will be soon.  Sure, we all know about Monuments Men and nobody can wait for Divergent, but in the course of putting up the display, I came across a ton of books that I had no idea were bound for the movie house.

Did you know Wild is going to be given the Hollywood treatment?  Starring Reese Witherspoon.

And Lois Lowry's The Giver...with Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, and *gasp* Taylor Swift?!?

And Gillian Flynn has not one but two books being turned into movies.  Gone Girl AND Dark Places!

Unbroken is going to be a movie before it's even released into paperback!

And of course, The Fault in Our Stars.

There's loads more.  Here's a really great list.  You better get started, you've got a lot of reading to do!
