Is the Daywatch book based on/adapted to the film of the same name?

Yes, Daywatch was the basis of the movie. But the first book, Nightwatch contains the seeds for both movies. The Daywatch book has very little to do with the movie. I'm looking forward to both the third movie and book, Twillightwatch.

As much as reading a comic book

I got Children of hurin back in May for my birthday. I had only just finished reading The Silmarillion so i ended up not wanting to delve back into middle earth history so soon.

I've seen the first film (and it was on again the other night), Daywatch has yet to be released on dvd over here yet so i haven't seen it.

I recently picked up Philip Pullman's Dark Materials. I've finished The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife and have just started The Amber Spyglass. Pretty good read.

My eye has caught some books by an Author named Jennifer Roberson (I think thats right) Has anyone read anything by her? And was it worth the read?

Oh and 100th post!!! Yipee Skipee!!

I really like Stephen Lawhead's Song of Albion trilogy! Its full action, intense battle, heartbreaking moments and moments where one feels joyfull.

How do you like it? Dr. Bauer was a professor of mine in college. She's fantastically bright and very down to Earth.

Right now, I'm reading Xenocide by Orson Scott Card. I've read all of the Ender's Shadow series except Shadow of the Giant, and now I'm working on Ender's Game.

Just finished Kiss the Girls by James Patterson. Holy carp can that man write a fast paced thriller. 2.5 half page chapters, insane plot twists and tons of suspense! I was about half way through and couldn't stop reading, I was up until 3 am finishing it. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was intense! Can't wait to read what happens to Alex Cross next, going to pick up the next one tomorrow.
