It looks like we're reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins for February! I'm so excited!

The Host by Stephenie Meyer was a close second. There was mention of having the book that came in second place be up for discussion for the next month. Let me know if you are still interested in doing that. Or if you would rather have another poll with different books up for vote.

I was thinking of opening a discussion for The Hunger Games on February 15th and you can join in whenever you read the book.

Please let me know if you have any other thoughts, opinions, suggestions.... I am open to anything.

Thanks,
Jenn

maybe we can set up a chat (I realize the chances of us all being available at the same time is slim to none) to discuss.

I am currently in another book club doing The Hunger Games on Shelfari and they've got some great discussion questions I can nick.

I'm so excited! BUT I'd better read it just before we start discussing. I'd hate myself and ya'll would hate me too if I slipped in something from Catching Fire on accident.

Hmmm.... a chat sounds interesting... I wonder how we would go about doing that. So far, I think there are 11 of us. It might be tough to get everyone on at the same time, schedule wise and time zone wise.

And oh, no! Do not give away spoilers from Catching Fire! I am putting off reading for a little bit so I don't to wait as long until the final book comes out.

oh I'm so excited to discuss The Hunger Games! I love this book! And I promise no spoilers from Catching Fire! as for chat time, I have WTTC chat at 9est on Wednesdays but if I know in advance, I may be able to work it out. or later Wednesday would be fine too. 9est is only 6 for me, so I'm not picky! Have fun reading!!!

I'm all in for reading the book but I would probably do better responding to a thread about it rather than making a chat time . . . I work, I have my family and 16 hrs this semester!

Here is the link to Amazon, listed starting @ 9.50.

Half.com / Books / The Hunger Games

Yes, I figured that it might be difficult for some to do a chat. It'll be hard for me to get on the computer at a set time, too, and I don't even have your workload.

I will take a look at the chat schedule to see if it is doable at all.

Good to hear that you're enjoying it. Were you able to get your hands on an actual copy or are you reading from the site you mentioned?
