Catching Fire

Couldn't stand to wait two days for a colleague to bring me the second Suzanne Collins. Bought it at Sams and finished it in about 3 days too. Read the last 50 or so pages so quickly wanting to know what happened had to have a discussion the next day to sort it all out! I plan to go back and reread. Does anyone else ever do that?
After reading it a warning.....Never compete in the Quarter Quells! Does anyone know where we can purchase a mockingjay pin?

Can't wait for book 3. Probably next September though.

Great news for Diana Gabaldon fans......An Echo in the Bone: A Novel will be released September 22.

My husband received his copy of The Symbol by Dan Brown today.

Exciting times to be a reader!

Wow The Hunger Games

A three day read and I finished The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The book was loaned to me by a 6th grader. Wow! Really good. Definitely a YA book though. Katniss was such a well defined character. Reality show meets the Roman Coliseum meets Big Brother. This is a book trailer of the book posted on Teacher Tube.
