I’ve tried doing that with the Harry Potter books. Sadly haven’t finished the series. Been years since I even touched my copy of the Order of the Phoenix.
When it comes to library books, I tried to get into “The Brothers Karamazov.” I’m not that fast of a reader and I couldn’t even get past the first section when it was return time.
Can Jon handle Stephen King’s work?
Some book-to-film adaptations rarely stay faithful.
Just buy the T-shirt Jon and save all the hassle.
One word… Audiobooks… help me through a boring shift no end
Story of my life. I’ve always wanted to be a bookworm, and this always impedes me. It’s depressing. :P
I thought New Year’s was a couple of months ago…looks like a New Year’s resolution to me…
Aim low and never be disappointed!
If you make it a task rather than a pleasure, then you’re less likely to finish it. Unfortunately, if you’ve reached adulthood without acquiring a reading habit, it may already be too late.
Jon’s not giving it much of a try, though.
or read the description of the movie on IMDb
Maybe we can get a condensed version of GoComics and only show the last panel?
Stay away from Jon Steinbeck, Jon. I had to read his books in high school, and I hated them because Steinbeck had a bad habit of spending so much time describing the minutiae of the scenery that he’d forget to advance the plot — and Melville suffered from the same affliction!
Garfield’s comment in the last panel is so true of today’s TV “new” series, or whatever. A good part of whatever program is seen through those “trailers” no need to watch the program !
And this guy is a cartoonist?
I wish I could read that fast.
Does Jon work?
When I was a child, I read “Treasure Island” in an hour. I am a natural speed reader.
You are seeing the whole content, of the book they used, in the trailer. Especially books I have read. No more movie adaptations for me.
I read this in the news paper today but I don’t actually get the news paper
Or read the Cliff Notes for the trailer.
Reading is Fundamental, however in today’s world it may be a lost art.
I’ve been trying to read more lately. (Books, that is, rather than the usual magazines/junk.) Leafing through a good story is always great. I think we should all do so more often.
Jon’s reading level is that of a coloring book, so it’s just as well…
The problem is that American movies tend to half-ass character development just to save time. Besides Hollywood doesn’t really use movies to tell dynamic stories anymore like they used to, they just use it to draw in big bucks from China with all these CGI blockbusters like Transformers, Marvel’s Avengers, Jurassic World and Fast & Furious. They spend $200 million to produce, another $300 million to advertise to get $1 billion back at the box office.
I’m doing a drawing every day for this month. I’m using the great app Tayasui Sketches. I highly recommend it for drawing on a tablet.
What about the Animal Farm movie from 1953
Jon. that’s not the way it works. you read the book then watch the movie. not vise versa
Lazy much Jon?
