Every time I go to the movies these days that I see a trailer that prompts me to whisper to my friend (or on the odd occasion, stranger) next to me “That was a book first”.

Starring the Queen of RomCom Julia Roberts and from the director of Running With Scissors Ryan Murphy comes the film adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert’s best seller Eat, Pray, Love. Release date: 7th October.
One for the kids; Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series remains a wildly popular title for younger readers. Number one is coming in a movie in September so check out its very cool website here (there’s a trailer there) with your tween now.
The Girl Who Played With Fire, the second in Steig Larrson’s Millenium trilogy is also on its way. The first film was, according to this trailer, the most successful Nordic film of all time so is definitely worth a look in the interim. If you can handle subtitles and enjoy a decidedly un-Hollywood film, keep your eye out for number 2… and hop to it for foreign film bragging rights over your friends (wink).

They are easy to read and appeal to good readers, but they are also a great way to get those reluctant readers going. In fact a parent of a ten year old boy with learning difficulties said the hospital where he is an out patient recommended them as an entertaining read, appropriate for his abilities. And, pleasingly, he loved them. There are are four in the series, with an additional book that accompanies them. They are all $14.95 Heather
