Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop 5.27.11

Follow Friday is a weekly hop hosted at Parajunkee’s View. Link up to find new reads and bookish blogs.

This week’s question: How many books do you read a week? In what format do you read them or listen to them?

My answer: I read about one book a week. In the winter I read more; in the summer I read less. I read traditional print editions. I just love physical books…the covers, the smell of the paper, the way they look on my shelves.

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy-for-Books.

This week’s question: What book-to-movie adaptation have you most liked? Which have you disliked?

My answer:

My favorite book-to-movie adaptation is The Princess Bride. Yes, there are some differences between the book and screenplay, but both are absolutely wonderful.

I’m not sure I can pick my least favorite adaptation. Recently, I was a little disappointed with the Percy Jackson movie. I missed all of the book scenes with Ares.

  1. The Princess Bride is one of the few movies that I like better than the original (I also saw the movie many times before I read the book so maybe that’s why).

    Happy Friday!
    I’m following you now.

  2. Oh my gosh! I can’t belive I forgot about this one! This is one of my favorite books and movies πŸ™‚ Good pick! Happy Blog Hop Day πŸ™‚
