Popular movies spur kids to read

Anonymous Patron writes " From "Harry Potter" to "Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events," more children are looking to the big screen to find out what book they should read next. Or so says The Home News Tribune (from New Jersey). Jean Ruch, a librarian at the North Brunswick Public Library, said some of the most popular books she sees children taking out are ones that were movies. "Things they see on television, they want a book about it," said Ruch, who has worked at the library since 1993."
