Movies - ruining the book since 1920

I feel this quite a bit. I hate it when a watch a movie before reading the book. Expectations can run amuck. Though there are exceptions to the rule too! What do you think?

More great shirts (bookish or otherwise) at! (sold out)


  1. i KNOW! isn't it a fantastic shirt? I've been lusting over several over at Threadless for a while now, that i actually created an account to keep track of my faves.

  2. Actually, except for one movie (Cold Mountain) I've always thought the book was better than the movie so it should say "BOOKS - ruining the movies since 1920"
    I'm one who never watches the movie until several years after I've read the book cause otherwise the movie always seems to come up short.

  3. Lisa, hahaha! I guess that is the other way of saying it!
