people who don't read never get it. It's a shame really. I know for me my 17 yr old son had alot of issues in his younger teens. It was very difficult for me to relax and center myself. So, I found that reading takes me somewhere else, make me feel normal for a little while. Korts screw those people who don't get it. lol

ohh I know, I just roll my eyes now when someone looks at me cause I bust out laughing at a book. its like they wont get it no matter how you word it. unless of course they have read the book and know what scene it is.
I should be starting Fablehaven soon, I just started Hunger Games. but after that on to Fablehaven and we can chat about it.

Im about halfway through Hunger Games and at first I wasnt that interested, not really my type of book but I kept hearing great things about it so Im sticking with it. and I really do like it so far, I'll probably finish it tonight so I'll let you know more tomorrow.

Hunger Games is a great book but it is hard to get into at first because not a whole lot is going on for the first half of the book. It gets more interesting when they are actually in the arena fighting. Then Catching Fire is even better than Hunger Games because you already know the story line and how everything works so the author was able to give Catching Fire a little faster story line.

Korts - Hunger Games was AWESOME! just like Lexa said the beginning is a little slow just cause they are trying to give you all the info of what the world is like and everything. but once you get past that the book really picks up and you wont want to put it down. I will be starting Catching Fire just cause I have to know what happens next.... so I advise you to give it another try and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

so do I, I only started reading obsessively within the last year. so there are alot of books and series that others have read that I need to catch up with, and at the same time more and more really good books keep coming out.

ohh I know... and sometimes I hate starting a book that is part of a series when the second or third book isnt out yet. Im very impatient I want to start the next book as soon as I finish the the one before it. or I hate when I only have the first book or two in the series I dont want to start it till I buy all of they so I wont have to wait. but then it only adds more to my pile of books to read. ohh I wish I had enough money to just go in and buy the bookstore... (:

and when the next book in the series comes out I want to reread the whole sereis to get back into it and that just screws up my whole TBR list cause Im reading books that have already been crossed off! so that just adds to the never ending list... I am just to book obsessed! but I LOVE IT!
