Books into Movies

Several movies that are being released this month originated as books - here's a list, including the title the movie was based upon:

The Duchess, based on the book Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman, stars Keira Knightly and Ralph Fiennes.

A Thousand Years of Good Prayers is based on the book of the same name by Yiyun Li.

Blindness is based on the book of the same name by Jose Saramago, and stars Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo.

Choke by Chuck Palahniuk is now a major motion picture (of the same name) starring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston.

Spike Lee's new film, Miracle at St. Anna is based on the novel of the same title by James McBride.

Finally, Nicholas Sparks' book Nights in Rodanthe hits the big screen with Diane Lane and Richard Gere.

Is the book better than the movie? Check them out for yourself and see what you think!
