I Volunteer as Tribute!

If you have no clue as to what that means than you are in the same boat I was in last week this time!  I know I'm late on the trend but I just (as in 5 minutes ago) finished reading the first book in the series The Hunger Games!  Umm, wow!  Amazing!
I'm usually late on book trends for a few reasons! 
1- I don't read hardbacks and usually wait for something to come out in paperback.  I'm also old-fashioned and don't have a Nook or a Kindle.
2- I'm a procrastinator and wait too long to read something, then a movie comes out and I frantically hurry to read it before I even see a preview!  (It's weird, I did it with The Help too!  I change the channel or close my eyes and ears so that I won't even see the character until after I've finished the book!)
3- I sometimes try and fight fads.  I did it with Modern Family, TOMS, and Blue Moon just to name a few.  Then become overwhelmed with curiosity and have to "try it out" only to be totally hooked!  I know, it's sad but true!
So, anyway...I read it, I'm all in for District 12 and on the way to buy Catching Fire right now! :)

  2. ML, I did not read the Hunger Games, saw the movie yesterday, and now I am over halfway through Catching Fire! I'm "ollin" and love Katniss' spirit and desire to WIN and to WIN for her family, friends and community!

    Have a great week! Hugs,

  3. They're are so good! I don't think Jeremy and I talked for two weeks while we were reading through them.
