The Hunger Games

Certain books just captivate the reader and you can't put it down. The Hunger Games is one of those books. Marcie and I both read it based on the glowing reviews of everyone who read it. Like everyone else, we finished it in mere days and can't wait to read the last two books in the series. The story is about a girl who has to survive against incredible odds including fighting to avoid poverty, fighting to survive in the wilderness, and fighting to avoid being killed by those who would see her fail. The author puts you in her shoes as she quickly sweeps from scene to scene. By the end, you're caught: hook, line, and sinker.

We're leaving just after lunch time Wednesday for MI. Luckily, the last two books we were able to find on mp3 from the library. Per the agreement, we could burn a cd so we can listen on the way down and back up. Both book 2 & book 3 are around 10 hours so that leaves only 5 hours each way of down time... much better then the 15 we're used to.
