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.

New Book, New Format

Phew! Deep breaths, everyone -- one book (and 22 tributes) down, two books to go (yes Heather, I'm hereby challenging you to maintain this blog through Mockingjay).

Based on reader feedback and my own proclivities, I've decided that for this new book we will try a new "readalong" format. I'll be trusting that you all did your homework, and instead of offering you such thorough and memorably brilliant summaries, I'll be hitting the key points and issues as I see them.

We'll see how it works -- if it's not, let us know! Unlike the Capitol, this blog is for the masses.


  1. I am supporting Andrew's challenge to keep this up through Mockingjay. If you do, I shall give you a cookie before I go home, Heather! (I'm not above bribery.)

  2. Oh, Jeebus. One more challenger, and I'm in. Back from vacation in a couple of days! You guys are going to town, and I like it!

  3. Dearest Heather, I hereby CHALLENGE you to continue the chapter-a-day readalong through MOCKINGBIRD as well. And please continue the posts in any style you see fit. I'm having a lot of fun with these posts. <3
