This book is coming soon to a movie theater near you

It's time for summer reads (and Summer Reading -- don't forget to sign up starting Monday!), but it's also time for a few summer blockbusters.  There are a lot of books, both classics and newer, that will be showing up on a big screen this year.  From Jane Eyre and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan to One Day and The Help.  Oh, yeah, and the final installment of a small, relatively unknown series.  There's also the already-popular Water for Elephants and The Lincoln Lawyer.

Of course, having books translated into movies isn't limited to adult audiences there are also a lot of great books for kids and teens that have become great movies.  Check out a more complete list here.  If you've seen the movie but not read the book, check one out and see what you think.  Doesn't everyone say that the book is always better than the movie?  I suppose our friends over at Now Playing might disagree.  What do you think -- book or movie?  What's been your favorite movie based on a book?
