Wondering what movies based on books will release during Summer 2012? BookBrowse has the answer!
In the past couple of months, the young have enjoyed Dr Seuss' The Lorax; teens have piled into The Hunger Games; now it's the turn of the rest of us - the chronologically challenged but still young at heart - to elbow our way into a seat to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which opens in USA movie theaters on May 4.
Wondering what books will be made into movies in Winter and Spring 2012? BookBrowse has the answer!
There's something for all ages and interests in this season's movies based on books. For the younger set, Danny DeVito, Taylor Swift and Zac Efron star in The Lorax. The YA crowd is already anticipating The Hunger Games. While adults with a political bent will likely be lining up for The Iron Lady. Personally, I'm pretty sure I'll be plunking down my money for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel!

I just came across this early interview with J.K. Rowling (probably from late 1998 or early 1999). She's sitting in the now famous Edinburgh House cafe in Edinburgh where she wrote the early Harry Potter books. She looks, frankly, exhausted, but hugely excited to have sold 30,000 copies of her first two books - especially as her agent told her, "there's not much money in children's books." She goes on to say that she's always wanted to write but "my realistic side had not allowed me to dream about half of what has happened to me," - this in reference to her agent selling the first two Harry Potter books to eight countries so, as she says with huge excitement, "it will be translated in France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy and Finland ... I love the idea of saying I'm big in Finland!"
