If a movie is based on literature, I’m in. No matter the genre. As an author, I understand that behind every book-to-film was a person scribbling away in sweaty solitude. So when I hear a film is based on a story first conceived in paper and ink, it has me from hello. That said, we live in a technology-frenzied world. My first devotion is to reading and writing, which doesn’t always leave me with the latitude to catch a prime time movie or take a trip to the theater. Enter Netflix. Streaming literary films opens the door to limitless possibilities: late-night viewings in bed; book club party matinees; the ability to stop and return if I feel compelled to grab the novel and plot check, and so much more. But where’s the app that tells us where to find such bookish delights? While we wait on the invention techies, here’s a look at my (lit) list on Netflix.

List curated by SARAH McCOY, New York Times bestselling author of The Mapmaker’s Children. (Follow her on Twitter @SarahMMcCoy and Facebook.)
