6 books to check out before they hit the big screen in 2016

2016 is going to be a great year for readers and moviegoers. With so many books being translated into movies, there is a little bit of something for every type of reader. Just like Anythink's blog post for book-to-movie adaptations in 2015, this year has its own list of movies we can't wait to see. If you haven't read any of the books on this list, check them out before they hit the big screen.

A journey through space and time

A stargazer is also a time traveler, and telescopes allow us to venture to the most distant and ancient reaches of the universe. Even hurtling through space at 186,000 miles per second, it takes light from the next closest star over four years to reach Earth. And compared with the grand scale of the cosmos, four years is nothing. Most of the celestial objects we can glimpse in the night sky are hundreds or thousands of light-years away. So, in a very real sense, peering through the eyepiece of a telescope is a journey through space and time.

Grow your garden: The Free Seeds & Transplants Program

In collaboration with Denver Urban Gardens, Anythink is providing free seeds and transplants to individuals, families, schools and community organizations based on annual adjusted gross income levels in order to ensure that everyone has access to healthy food. If you're interested in receiving these seeds and transplants, visit your local Anythink and ask for the Free Seeds & Transplants application. This year, each household can receive up to seven seed packets and four sets of transplants. 

For the love: 4 novels

If you love books and reading, and especially if you cherish settling in with a well-written novel, the following four titles are for you. When cold winds bluster, nestle into your nest and dedicate yourself to these books about books – and about love. Embracing these novels as you burrow in your burrow, you will find narratives about booksellers, printers, and authors – and their individual passions, some inconstant and some enduring. I was enwrapped in these stories of ardor and loss, invention and devotion.
