Vampire Diaries: The Difference Between The Books And The Show

I have been reading the Vampire Diaries books, well the first four anyway, since they came out in 1991 and have loved them. Even as an adult I still go back and visit Elena, Stefan, Damon, Meredith and Bonnie once in a while. I have wore out more than fifteen copies of each of the four original books. When I hear that the Vampire Diaries was being made into a TV series I was so excited until I saw the cast.
