Which ones have you seen? Which one are you rooting for?
I have seen The Help. Loved it. I have read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and one of the main things I liked about it were the graphics so I'm not sure how they will transfer that aspect to the screen.
I haven't read or seen any of them either. I don't get out much.
This weekend we did get to drop off the kids at my parents and go to the movies. DH, an avid movie fan, didn't care what was out as long as he got to see something. I would have liked to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close but it was only in limited theaters here and none of which were close enough for us to go to.
The Help has been on my TBR list for the last two years.... I really, really hope to read it this year!
