Movies, TV, and Books

I am not ashamed to admit that I am one of those people who when they find out that something they have watched is a book they go out and buy it.  And more often than not I end up loving the book way more than the show.  But every now and again I come across someone who looks down on me for not knowing about the book till the show/movie.  I’m sure you’ve meet those people and know how they are….

They look at me with their smug little faces and treat me like I’m just going along with the book because “it’s the big thing right now”.  Outwardly I just smile and walk away but inside I’m all….

There are hundreds if not thousands of books that come out daily and not ally of them get carried by every bookstore.  So what if I just stumbled across a book or series because it’s on tv or they made it into a movie?  At least I went out and bought the book in an attempt to see how much they left out and to become apart of that literary world.  I didn’t even know that Enders Game was a book and it’s been out for a while, but I’ve added it to my reading pile.  Game of Thrones…had no idea but now I’m happy that I found it.  Here’s a biggie….I didn’t read Harry Potter till the first movie was about to come out.  I saw the previews and thought that it looked interesting.  I read the first three books before the movie hit theaters.

So here’s the point that I’m trying to make.  Just because you picked up a book because it has made its way into the main stream media does not make you any less of a reader.  You can’t possibly know of every book ever made.  Treasure these surprising find and remember to treat other readers with the same respect that you want.  Happy Reading!!!!
