This week on the Amazing Read we challenge you to read a book that has been (or will be) turned into a movie! For bonus points (not that we're keeping track) you could also watch the movie. I always like to compare the two and see what they decided to change and which one I like better. Spoiler alert: the book is (almost) always better. I watched Warm Bodies , a zombie rom-com, over the weekend and I'm looking forward to reading the book this week. We’d love to hear what you’re reading, so consider sharing with us through your Summer Reading Program log , by commenting on this post, or on Facebook , Twitter  or Pinterest .
