I am on a roll with the bookish movie trailers. I posted the trailer for The Help on tumblr, so I am going with the other big movie for my blog. Is anyone planning to see this, this weekend or at all? What I love about the trailer is that it is very much like what I imagined in my head. Few movies can do this. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden was probably the only other book where this happened for me with the movie. I wonder how closely the movie will follow that plot?
I read Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen with my book club before I started my blog, and before I knew a thing about who published what. Of course I know more now, and to look back at Algonquin‘s backlist is to discover that they are in fact, bookrunners, and probably supply most book clubs in the United States with a good number of titles. They sure have supplied me and mine with quite a few. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Impressive. And that’s to say nothing of all the fab books they have out right now and coming over the next few months.
