Rachel: It probably won't surprise you that the author, Suzanne Collins, got the idea for this series while flipping through TV channels. On one channel was a reality show that featured young people competing against each other; on another was footage of the Iraq War. Just like that an idea was born!

Has anyone one read "A Discovery of Witches" by Deborah Harkness? It's on several recommended ready lists. I coach high school speech and am always looking for both dramatic and funny pieces for competition for my students. .
Have not yet read this one myself, but have seen it featured or talked about a lot, both at GoodReads and on various book blogs. It sounds good!

I finished reading THE LINCOLN LAWYER by Michael Connelly this morning. I was actually up late last night reading it, but at 1am I made myself put it down, and finished it before work this morning. Great suspense! Now I need to get my hands on both the DVD and next book in the series.

Will be starting Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford tonight, and am eagerly looking forward to it. HCBS is an April group read for The Next Best Book club at GoodReads.
