Are movies ruining literature?

Now, I know many of you may be thinking 'oh no, enough with the Twilight Saga!' whilst others of you just simply cannot get enough.
I happen to actually love the Twilight Saga...until they produced the films.
Sometimes, I look at my bookcase and think 'hmmm, what shall I read?' and before, i'd quite happily pick Twilight where I would get lost in my version of Edward Cullen. Now, whenever I pick up my book, not only do I have Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on the front cover but I can't imagine any other character throughout the novel.
The dreamy, vampire I had created is now lost but replaced with a hairy-chested, Robert. Have you ever seen a marble staircase with hair? I thought not.
I feel this may be coming off as a rant, which it kind of is; but, the point I am trying to make is do all books have to be made into a film?
Years ago literature was valued; and becoming so engrossed in a book wasn't seen as a 'nerdy' thing to do.
I feel that literature needs to be appreciated more and not turn a great read (for the younger generation) into a film.
Media and technology is becoming more and more advanced and I fear that in years to come literature won't be appreciated unless it's become a motion picture.

It is important that the children of today don't forget that literature can be enjoyable. You just need to find that one book you simply can't put down and hope a director doesn't stomp all over it.
Special effects can't compare with an individuals imaginaton.

Read the Twilight Saga, watch the films, spot the differences and see what you prefer.
Literature vs. Motion Picture.
