I don’t know about you guys, but it has been a fan-freakin-tastic day of reading. I’m so impressed with all of the amazing encouragement you’re giving each other all over social media and the number of books you’re putting away.
Before you get back to your reading, I’ve got your Hour 12 winners. So many great first lines you guys have in your stacks! (Don’t forget, you can still enter the Hour Zero Intro Survey challenge.)

This hour’s challenge is all about book-to-screen adaptations. As much as we love the books, sometimes a story’s film version makes us equally all heart-eyes emojis.
Personally, I can’t get enough of the recent adaptation of Far from the Madding Crowd and my cohost Kristen brought me the prettiest UK edition when she went to Ireland last fall so I can finally read the book.
In the form, tell us your favorite book to movie adaptation, extra bookworm points if you own both the book and the movie.

WOW — this is so hard for me — I love book adaptations. To pick only one is torturous. 😦 I learned years ago to judge them as separate medium and while I prefer when a movie is faithful to the book, there are always going to be differences.
Oh goodness. All of the Harry Potter books and movies, and yes, I own them all….despite the fact I’ve loaned out the books and they haven’t been returned. I may need to buy new ones.
Yes, my favorite book is The Princess Bride and I do own the movie. I read it in high school and loved it, I didn’t know it was movie til my mom told me about it.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!!
I loved Memoirs of a Geisha, book and movie, immensely!
How do I know if my entry has actually been submitted?
You should get an email confirming it, I think. I did.
Well crud. I haven’t gotten anything.
Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca’s was a total charm both on screen and in the book

I have lots of favorites but my all time favorite is Pride and Prejudice. I have several different versions of both the book and movie.
I also really love Like Water for Chocolate, but am going with Beloved for my top pick. https://twitter.com/maynardlara/status/957450492673691648 #24in48 @MaynardLara on Twitter, @lara.maynard on IG
The Book Thief is another good one. But l am still sticking with Beloved for my pick. https://twitter.com/maynardlara/status/957450492673691648
