Do you normally read the books before watching their movies?

To be honest, I usually do the opposite :LOL:
Every time I watch a good movie, I ask if there's also a book about it :LOL:

It depends. If the books were really popular, I have most likely read the books first. If a movie was made based on relatively unknown books, then I would ask about books. But for me, I usually read the books first :)

I usually read the books first but there's also times when I didn't realise the movie was based on a book so I went and got it afterwards. But the books usually make the movies look terrible because they take so much out :P

If I hear the movies about a book I usually don't go out and read the book first. Unless it looks good. Generally I read the books before the movie is even put into production :P

I can't think of any movie's based on books that I've seen other than Gone With the Wind, but I went out to buy the book and read it before I watch the film.

I usually try my best to read the books first, but it doesn't always happen. Some notable exceptions are: Twilight (I wasn't planning on reading or watching it though, so it's a special case), Marley and Me, and Pay It Forward. There are others, but I'm too lazy to try and remember them right now.
