Currently I have been binge watching some really great movies and/or mini-series based on best selling books. In my opinion, you do not have to read the book before you watch the movie. While web surfing, I stumbled on this theory of the age old debate, books versus movies, by bookbub.com, ” Movies are comparatively quick and easy, so if the book has a storyline that you’re on the fence about, watching the movie can help make the decision. If it’s great, reading the book will give you more insight into the characters, and depth of the plot”.
This is my list of current binge-worthy mini-series I have indulged in lately. Click on the title of the book, and you will be directly linked to our digital library.
