The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, is released today. Now I have a dilemma.
You see, my copies of the first two books are packed away, on their way to the UAE. It shouldn't matter, right? Because it's the third book that's new?
Except I do like to re-read the first books in a series before reading the last new one. Plus, I read this article in the NYT recently about happiness and it said that looking forward to something for a long time makes that thing more rewarding when you finally get it.
Now, I've already been waiting for this book for a year, so I'm sure it will be plenty rewarding. But it will be more so if I wait to read it until I get my hands on the first two books and re-read them.
But in the meantime, what if someone accidentally spoils Mockingjay for me?
Is anyone else waiting a while to read this one? If so, please join me in my self-imposed total radio silence on all things Panem.
