Books into Movies

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
I can't even attempt to articulate how much I love this book.
Jonathan Safran Foer:
You could make dove's cry.
I had a lonely feeling of withdrawal when I finished this book, years ago.
It is a treasure. Clutch to your chest and read and re-read and underline
favorite passages, type of treasure.
And now it's being made into a movie, starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.
My little sister sent me a picture of a promotional poster.
And then I sleuthed around online and confirmed it.
I haven't quite decided how I feel about this,
but we'll just have to wait and see.
If you haven't read it.
Please do.


  1. This post was inspired by the best little sister in the world, Panda Jo.

  2. I legit recommend this book to everyone I know, thanks to YOU recommending it to me years ago. Can't wait for the movie.
