I'm currently reading the saga again for the 5th time. I'm the type of person that when i read i immerse myself in the book, i love to create the scene. I find, when choosing a book, i'll read the first 2 chapters and if i'm unable to 'be in the book' i won't get it. By that i mean if i can't imagine the words and make it real in my head i won't get it.

I agree, I have to be able to picture the book clearly to like it... I always flip to the cover, look at the drawing of the person, flip to the words, and like it better. 'Cause I have such a big imagination, and I hate books with lots of pictures. Like, c'mon, I have a brain!

Last year around October 2009, our country was hit hard by a typhoon. Hard rain and flood for almost a week, no electricity for almost a month. Anyway as usual what comes up after calamity are people having panic attacks, specifically panic buying for groceries. So one night after I got off from work, there's another news that another typhoon was about to hit us so I decided to buy groceries in case of emergencies. The grocery store near our apartment happens to stand right beside the bookstore. Since it was still early I decided to step into the bookstore first and 'scan' through potential books that might interest me (taking note of the word scan not buy).

I don't really know what happened, one minute I was entering the bookstore, with my ipod in hand trying to find a good song to match my mood, and the next thing I know I was exiting the bookstore with a book in tow. A book which is not in my budget and which cost 3 times more than the grocery I intended to buy. *Deep Sigh* So I went home empty handed of groceries, put plastic cover on my new book, locked my bedroom door, turn off the light, turn on my bed lamp, curled in my bed, hug my favorite pillow and started reading my unexpected compulsive extravaganza. I figured my brother wouldn't let me go hungry when the typhoon strikes.

Good thing it didn't hit our country...*Whew*

The product of my excessive compulsive buying extravaganza that night: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Dazzle 21 glad the storm missed your town. That would be very scary. I haven't read the book that you picked up but it is on my list of reads.

Thanks! You wouldn't believe how scary it was last year. Anyway The Hunger Games you should try reading it. It's really good, if your into hearts stopping, page turning type of book. The sequel is also out Catching Fire and the third book is said to come out this year around August. Plus this book is highly recommended by Stephenie Meyer, so I'm sure you won't be disappointed like me...

I too love HG....but I got two hours of sleep after working graveyard to fnish the 6th Maximum Ride, it's in the forefront of my book thoughts right now. I'm still Team Fax whatever James Patterson has to say.
