    Why is it books like Harry Potter get made into movies quickly while other great books are not?

    For instance, house of night, lunar chronicles, and gatekeeper series.

    I haven't heard of any of those.

    Not that that means anything seeing as how I'm not as into books as I used to be. It could be because the books simply aren't as popular as others, or the author does not want a movie adaptation.

    Considering how the Eragon movie turned out I can certainly understand why some might not want to go the movie route...

    Popularity, probably.  Demand for certain genres at certain times.  How adaptable a story is. 

    There are thousands of great books but not all of them are going to be made into movies, it's not practical.
