Some of us are more avid readers than others, but even so, there’s a possibility that your favorite movie was a book first. Many popular hits were first movies, such as Lord of the Rings, Twilight, and of course Alice in Wonderland. Books often provide unique perspective to the story that the movies miss!

Get in the head of Stephen King, or discover the history of the classic Dracula. Especially if you enjoy reading, you’ll breeze through all these surprising literature facts!
