Read These Fall Books Before the Movies Come Out
Because book lovers know the real joy of seeing
a movie is....having read the novel or memoir first.

The Best of Me
The story of former high school sweethearts
Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole, who reconnect after 25 years, will make for the
kind of lush romantic film that most of us fell for when seeing The
Notebook. But let's not forget that
as you read Spark's novel, you'll get wrapped up in the desperate longings of
the characters—longings that you want to last for more than two
hours, which is precisely the kind of weeklong or monthlong experience a book
can so exquisitely deliver.
