the first time i ever did so was lord of the rings. i had heard about the movies coming out in 2001 and read it in 2000. more fan of the book than the movies. do you do something similar?
example is right now i'm reading I, Robot because of the Smith movie. now i know that the Smith movie doesn't have anything to do with the book, except some themes. it's been on my list for some time. just the movie sort of forces you to read the book. that's just me... you?
