Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 isn't the only movie based on a popular book this season. Here are three more coming up; all the books are available in paperback.

The Help (Berkley) by Kathryn Stockett is the megabestselling novel about race relations in the 1960s South; the movie, with Emma Stone and Viola Davis, hits screens in August.

Moneyball (W.W. Norton) by Michael Lewis is the true story of Oakland A's manager Billy Beane — played by Brad Pitt in the film, due in September — and how he used statistical data to overcome a lean budget.

One Day (Vintage Contemporaries) by David Nicholls is about the romance across two decades between Dexter and Emma, who reconnect each year on the anniversary of one lusty night together; they're played by Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway in the film, opening in August.
