Postby Robin » 05 Aug 2010, 21:51

Anyone else geeking out? Who's going to a midnight release party? Are you buying the book the next morning or did you pre-order it?

Ha, I am not geeking out or going to a midnight release, but I have pre-ordered Mockingjay from Amazon, and BOY, am I looking forward to it! I don't usually buy books (am a library gal aka cheapskate) so you know I have to like something to actually spend $$$$ on a book. I was delighted to go to the Shelfari site and post the cute little thumbnail of Hunger Games on my virtual "bookshelf" on my blogsite. Free, and fun. You can display your fave books, so I did.

I tried to get my mom to read Hunger Games, but she couldn't get into it. Her loss...

Oh man! I read The Hunger games Monday and Tuesday, Catching Fire just came in the mail... and now I'm tapped out! I'll just have to wait until I can afford it- or noone else had it checked out at the library...

I wish I could go to a midnight release, but I doubt I'll be able to make one. That would be awesome. But I am geeking out!

*happy dance*

My local indie bookstore is doing a midnight release party that I'm seriously contemplating attending. Hmmm.

I can't do midnight. But I'll be at the bookstore bright and early on the 24th. I have to if I want to get the darn thing read before the Bransforums Mockingjay party. I am such a slow reader. Sigh.

Well Borders assures me they will be getting it on the 24th but let's just wait and see. Every other release they've been a month behind. I'll need to get it on the day so I can have it read and out of my mind before I go to Melbourne in September.

I'm positively beside myself with excitement.

I preordered from Amazon and took the next day off work so I can stay up reading all night long.

I want to read Mockingjay so much it kinda hurts. But I'm putting that pain to good use: Mockingjay will be my reward for finishing this round of edits on my MS. Now, if I can just beat the clock and get those done by the 24th...

That's it. I'm putting in my pre-order!

UPDATE: I pre-ordered on my Nook, which I guess means I'll get to download it when it's released? Much nicer than standing in line!

I preordered for my Kindle. I hope that means I can refresh my books list at midnight on the 24th and it'll appear!

Is anyone else having to share their MOCKINGJAY with someone else on release day? My husband and I are both anticipating the book. I'll probably cede the Kindle to him on the 24th since Tuesday and Wednesday are his days off work. Then I'll steal it back from him in the evenings since I won't be able to wait for him to finish! I'm a faster reader than he is and will surely have it finished wihtin an evening or two.

I'll have to settle for getting it on the day. Can't wait!

LOL Harper!! Maybe you can make him wash dishes for the week of something in exchange for being the first to read Mockingjay.
