So I've put myself on the request list for The Time Traveler's Wife  by Audrey Niffenegger in anticipation of the movie (coming to a theater near you on August 14th). I'm the sort of person who likes to read the book before seeing the movie.

Hmm...Will Smith is in two of these. Perhaps he's an "adapted from the book" kind of person, too!
