How many books make it to film?

Barages of emails are received with offers of turning one of my books into a movie.
They come with a cost attached of course.  However I am interested to know if anyone reading this blog knows someone who's story has inspired a movie?
In deed if anyone has had a published book turned into a film?
Was this spontaneous or supported by financially driven means through a publisher?
It would be great as some books lend themselves to conversion to the silver screen.
I have always thought this would be great but equally very difficult to convert. The process of writing a book is a steep learning curve, writing a screen play..  A minefield

Your thoughts would be appreciated as would any links or tips...

I eagerly await your response
Thanks
Ram :-)
