    There are so many great choices to select from. I’ll stick with the books-to-film titles that have stuck with me since I was a kid.

    One of my favorite stories turned feature film was J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Sure, the film was animated, but it still ranks among my top favorites. So it should’t be a surprise that I also loved the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Now looking forward to the live action production of The Hobbit.

    Watership Down is another that I’ve read/watched over and over.

    Of Mice and Men, The Secret of Nihm, and The Planet of the Apes would also make my list.
