I tried to resist the whole Catching Fire craze. I liked Hunger Games. In fact, I liked it a lot. But typically I am the person who loves discovering great books. If they have already been discovered, I might read them, but I am not the person who needs to read them the day they come out. So, while I wanted to read Catching Fire, it really was not on my radar quite like it has been for other people. However, I have been in a bit of a reading rut. I seem to go through this sometime each fall. Whether it is the whole going back to school thing, or the lack of as much reading time as during the summer, I usually clean out my stack of library books once in the fall. That means I have been a bit in-between books right now. Which means that when I got home yesterday and found a box from Amazon at my door, I was able to start right in on Catching Fire. And, although I am not far, I am enjoying myself. Catching Fire is just as good as everyone has told me and I am looking forward to finding spare minutes to keep reading. So, me, too. I will jump on the bandwagon in the Catching Fire craze. And, I may be just like everyone else awaiting book three, which I read this morning in USA Today is scheduled to be published in Fall 2010-a whole year from now!
