Bauman's Rare Books in the Palazzo Shoppes has assembled an exhibition of novels that became famous films. The store has everything from a signed copy of "Gone with the Wind" to first editions of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. We look at some of the books and the movies that were made -- what kind of books makes a great movie?
