book/movie combos

Have you read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkin? It could be a great summer read for the whole family. It would be fun to read The Hobbit and then go see the movie this December.

I love the opening lines from the Hobbit; 
they always suck me in ...

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” 
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit (1937)

What Book/Movie combinations would you like to experience this summer?

How about: 
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
  • The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selzneck
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

Any other good combo ideas?

If you read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and see the movie this month, please let me know if I should do the same!
