Welcome to the Hunger Games read-along! Beginning July 1st, 2010, we will be reading and chatting about one chapter a day of both The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins in anticipation of the release of Mockingjay on August 24th.

In the unlikely event that this is your first read of these amazing books, welcome! And more importantly, beware of spoilers! There will be spoilers.

Two weeks to go!

It is a mere two weeks to go until we can start group-obsessing.  I hope you're all dusting off your copies (as if they've had time to gather dust) and finding a good, sturdy bookmark to keep your place when you stop reading after only a chapter.  It will be tough, but it will also be worth it.  Promise!

In the interest of this project, I have recently re-read Catching Fire.  Guys, I'm psyched.   This wasn't my favorite book on the first read, but the second read was completely excellent.

So, as we gear up, I put it forth:  what kinds of things are you hoping to see here?  Do you want polls? (Gale vs. Peeta?  Pssh. Amateur.  What about Rue vs. Prim?  Personally, I love Rue, but I'm pretty sure Prim could take her.)  Do you want a place to voice your theories of what will happen in Mockingjay?  Do you want to keep track of who killed whom?

Consider the suggestion box open.  And don't forget to tell everyone you know to join us!
