Because we're cool like that.




Oh and for next month's LOtR read? It is totally acceptable to watch the movies. I am a sucker for those movies. And make a snack. And let's all agree that I can have Boromir for an imaginary boyfriend.
I know that for some the book is hard to get through, so just enjoy this story however you'd care to, just don't google "Boromir Fan Fiction" because, WOW.

Update: I am unable to respond to comments for some reason, so I wanted to absolutely agree that the movies are not the same as the books, but if the books are just not the writing style you enjoy, or you find the read simply not for you, please enjoy the movies; because this story is too good to miss.

  1. I respectfully disagree that watching the movies substitutes for reading the book. There are distinct (and important) differences in the screen version & the book. Don't get me wrong, I *LOVE* the movies (Aragorn - swoon!), but the books ARE different, and, of course, have more depth to the story, since they don't have to be pared down for movie audiences. The movies are a good ADJUNCT to reading the trilogy, but, really, you have to read the books to get the whole story.

  2. I saw the movie, The Hunger Games, and enjoyed it, which was fine as I had no intention of reading the book. So the movie served a good purpose for me. Same with a couple of other books made into film - saw the films but didn't plan on reading the books.
