2012: The Year of the Mook?

It seems I’m not the only one RIDICULOUSLY pumped for 2012 Mooks! Read, “The 10 Most Anticipated Book Adaptations of 2012” (via Publisher’s Weekly)

What I find the most exciting is the number of noteworthy classics on this list!  While The Great Gatsby and Great Expectations both dominate the categories in literary history, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Life of Pi have just as much credibility and are very popular reads.  The highly anticipated adaptation of The Hobbit is long overdue and The Hunger Games? Enough said. I know I can’t stop ranting about how 2012 is going to be a great Mook year, and it has just started!  I hope you’re all as excited as I am.

  1. I subscribe to emails from literary magazine, “American Short Fiction”–and recently they sent an email requesting donations, but it’s so mookish, I need to quote it for you:

    “December 29, 2011

    Wait, isn’t that backwards? Nope. Think about your top ten favorite movies. Now think about the top ten blockbusters. How many of them were books first?

    Sure, we have all sorts of good, ethical reasons for caring deeply about literature. But let’s also be honest. If filmmakers can’t read great writing anymore, what movies will you be going to during the holidays?

    In an old-fashioned form, we’re the future.

    We’re sustaining the writers who will be writing the things you care about when you’re home during a snowstorm reading on your couch. We’re also sustaining the writers who will one day make movies with Johnny Depp that break your heart. (When that happens, the editors have dibs on lunch with Johnny, so don’t ask.)

    Sincerely,

    The Editors
