      If Hollywood makes a movie based on a book, do you watch the movie or read the book? Why? Do you do both? Which one do you do first?

      I think it has to depend very much on the author of the book. Some books I never get past the first few pages because they seem such hard going.
      But with some books the words just flow into each other, conjuring up a mental image of the world the author has created, peopled with believable characters and scenarios that capture the imagination.

      And I think you'd find, it is such books that also make the best films.

      I tend to read the books first before watching the movies if I get the chance to. I like to be able to compare the two and see what was left out of the movie that was in the book. :)

      I am not a person who use to read books and watch movie. Just read the movie plot in Google and watch it :D

      It varies. Sometimes I have read the book first, and other times I see the movie first.

      Books are more interesting than Movies, but movies have interesting plots too.
      I wonder how Harry potter novels would be.
