Read the book, watch the movie... eat the pie?

It will probably come as no surprise that I am addicted to trailers.  I adore them x1000.  In fact in some ways they are often better than the movie.

And isn't that a sad state of affairs.

The following trailers though only make me want to see the movie even more.  Which is exactly what a trailer should do.  Hopefully they will also make you want to read the book.  Because yes, all these trailers are based on books.

So why not check them all out.  While you do that I'll be watching even more trailers.  All in the name of work.
