Love the show? It may have started as a paperbackBy Robert IsenbergSpecial to MSN TVPeople say it all the time: "If you like the show, you should definitely read the book."But sometimes we don't even realize that our favorite TV series were originally based on novels, and this gets truer every year -- more bestsellers have turned into TV blockbusters than ever before. Most Americans don't read so much as a book per month, but they could watch "Dexter" all day. When they find out about Jeff Lindsay's novels, they suddenly have an excuse to do both.With the arrival of "King & Maxwell," a new detective dramedy inspired by the David Baldacci series, we decided to round up some of our favorite book-inspired TV series. No matter what kind of bookworm you are, you can expect some surprises.Bing: More on 'King & Maxwell' | More on Rebecca RomijnWhat book would you like to see as a TV series?
