This week's question is:
What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?
A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book OneThe King's SpeechI usually say that the only movie-adaptations that I've liked is the Twilight movies because they're shorter than the actual books lol but to be honest, if only actually seen the first one. Umm, I loved the movie of The King's Speech and not quite a movie but Game of Thrones is awesome, although I haven't yet read the books of those.

Basically I pretty much dislike most book-to-movie adaptations. I generally prefer to read the book first if I can and for me the movies never live up to it, even if it's just because they've had to cut parts out to fit in the time. If it's a book I really love I can't help but criticise every little detail - I'm kind of a nightmare to watch Harry Potter with.

This week's question is:
How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

I usually get through 2 or 3 books on an average week, mostly paperbacks and ebooks. Sometimes I read enough that I would have finished the normal amount but I'll be reading about 4 or 5 different books at a time so I don't actually get them finished lol. For some reason this week I keep starting new books before I've finished the one's I'm already reading.

It's also Mega Swagbucks day! If you don't use Swagbucks you should give it a try.
