Page to Screen

Perhaps by now you have watched all the shows on your watch lists for various streaming services.  Many a popular series had its beginning as a book.  Have you ever read the book after watching a movie to compare the different media?  How many details were changed?  Do the characters match up to those you pictured in your head?  How does the visualization of the setting change from the written word to what is portrayed on screen?  Did they (gasp!) change the ending for the movie?  

Here are some popular titles that are streaming on one or more platforms and links to the ebook or audiobook in our eLibraryNJ collection.  Keep in mind that you will need a valid library card and PIN to access eLibraryNJ.  Should you need a library card, please click here to apply for a card that will be valid for 90 days.  If you have a card and don’t remember your PIN, please use the Chat Reference link from the library page to connect with a staff member.
