I really want to read the book tooby Nastasia | created - 31 May 2011 | updated - 2 weeks ago | Public
For some movies I've read the books they were based on, but for many movies I just made a note - I would really like to read the book too. After reading, if I find a book worthy enough, I'll move the related movie to another list :-)
