Monday's Book Buzz

There's a lot of book buzz going on this week! 

The Oscars were last night, and movies adapted from books were well represented.  Here are a few of the more notable ones:

Jennifer Lawrence took home the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook

Ang Lee took home Best Director for Life of Pi, and thanked the author in his acceptance speech!  The movie also won an award for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Special Effects.  Plus, the book was written by a Canadian!  Great night for this best-seller.

Anne Hathaway took Best Supporting Actress for the classic Les Miserables, which also won for Best Make-up and Hairstyling. 

Anna Karenina, another classic, won for Best Costumes.
