We tend to think of TV as something totally separate from literature. Not so! If you’ve enjoyed any of the following on TV, consider reading the books they are based on.
Boardwalk Empire, based on Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Nelson Johnson
Masters of Sex based on Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Couple Who Taught America How to Love by Thomas Maier.
Call the Midwife based on Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times by Jennifer Worth
Orange Is The New Black based on Orange Is The New Black: My Year In a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman
I could go on and on: Roots, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, numerous books by Agatha Christie (including Miss Marple and Poirot), Grantchester, Anne of Green Gables, the Father Dowling mysteries, Great Expectations, the Forsythe Saga. . .
Here’s a thought: Whatever your TV passion, check it online for possible roots in books. You might find an author you love!
