Started to read The Hunger Games Tuesday night and finished it last night (Wednesday). I couldn't put the book down!
This is the exact reason I hesitate to read a good book, because then my finishing the book becomes top priority and nothing else gets done. Luckily, it only took me about a day to finish, so I'm not too far behind on things around the house (though now I still have a second and third book to read of the series).
Anyway, I wanted to highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good book to read. My husband and I like to read books together. Meaning, he'll read it out loud and I snuggle up to him and listen (we used to take turns reading out loud, but then I found out that James doesn't like how I pronounce some words). We've done this since we were engaged and it is one of my favorite past times with my husband.
I did read this one on my own, but want to read the next one together with my husband. I don't know if either of us can wait patiently for the other one to finish it.
