Thanks to everyone who commented last week. Many noted that Pride & Prejudice seemed to lead the adaptation pack. Sue mentioned Sherlock Holmes which is another good one for spin offs. Alina suggested Shakespeare has a number of adaptations. There were five mentions of Beauty and the Beast, three of Cinderella, two of fairy tale re-tellings generally and five couldn't think of any others.

Nikki asks: When reading Hardcovers, do you remove the cover jackets first??
This question came at a good time as I just received two hardback books for review. I have not removed the cover jackets. I see that I will use them as a bookmark for part of the reading - near front and back - but I might need a real bookmark for the middle.

Congrats Fredamans. Sometimes I do. If it's a library book or borrowed from someone I leave it on.ReplyDelete

If the dust cover keeps slipping I will take it off. Otherwise it does serve as a bookmark.ReplyDelete

I most definitely remove the jackets to keep them safe as I use bookmarks. I can't imagine tearing the jacket while reading the book.ReplyDelete
