The Corner Book Shop: Another reason to love my local Library

As my main hobby is reading (plus I have lots of free time and love being surrounded by books), I usually go to the local library often.
Today I went to pick up some books and stop to see the books they had for sale in the shop.

I was lucky and found three books to add to my collection (total spend $ 3.56 usd):
 
– Animal Farm by George Orwell
– The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (I understand that a movie based on the book and starring Leonardo DiCaprio will be released soon).
– Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

All the books I bought, although used, are in very good condition, plus it seems like a good way to help and also save a few dollars.

I think from now on, every visit to the library will include a stop at the Corner Book Shop.

Books and Movies: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Another thing I really love besides books is the movies, in my parents home (in my home country) I have a really big collection which includes movies from different genres: action, romance, independents, comedy, musical, classics and more, to my dissapointment couldn’t bring my collection with me and I had to choose only 4 movies (I thought the best was to chose movies than probably I wasn’t to find here).A few weeks ago I started to buy movies again to start a new collection and today I was lucky to find in Target the Trilogy of “The Lord of the Rings” in 5 usd each DVD (for me that’s a good price).I’m planning watch the entire Trilogy again (but this time with my husband who to my surprise hasn’t watched it yet) and after we are planning to go to the Cinema to watch “The Hobbit” (if is still there, if not I guess we’ll have to wait until is available for rent or sale).
A part of my “To Do List” is to read the complete book’s collection of the Lord of the Rings to get a better insight.

I love compare books with the movies based on them, do you have any good recommendation? what are your favorites adaptations?
