From Books to Screen – Your TV and Movie Line-up for Fall and Winter

Book To Screen

What to Watch

As the weather gets chillier you may prefer to stay in at night, dim the lights and bring out the popcorn. It seems like a popular trend is to take great books and make them into shows. Even though we often think the book was better than the movie, there is still good reason to be entertained with stories we loved by watching them on the screen. Here’s what is coming up this fall and winter; add them to your watch list and let me know how they are!
