books into movies

so my way of bringing in the new year, i went to see the movie true grit by the coen brothers. which was an awesome movie! the acting was great. the directing was great. the landscapes in the movie were beautiful. i defiantly suggest everyone to go out and see this movie! and i knew there was a true grit that john wayne was in, but what i didn't know was that true grit is a book. and that got me thinking about how many movies that are originally books. and so i though i would list a bunch of them. and there are tons. but i just find it interesting that so many books have been made into movies.
