What I've Read - #1

Really good, but way too short! A professor gets his first Kindle and discovers that it contains newspapers from alternative timelines! What other histories will he discover?
Fascinating book! Definitely makes me look at marketing and social issues differently. He takes a look at what "tips" a situation from just a once-in-a-while event into a sweeping epidemic. Very intriguing read and quite insightful.



This book was much harder to get through than the first two in the series. I think this probably was because the depths of hopelessness were fully explored in it. I'm glad I read it though and I'm glad it ended like it did, but it was still a very sad and difficult book to read. 


(For anyone not familiar) this is the 3rd and final book in the Hunger Games series. If you plan to watch the upcoming HG movie, I highly recommend reading at least that first book first. That's the best one of the series, in my opinion, and is a very powerful and quick read.

Are you on Goodreads? Come find me! I like to try to keep track of the books I've read over the years. It's also a fun way to find new books to read!

  2. Ha, I've never read Stephen King either...I saw IT when I was way to young to be watching it, and I think I'm permanently scarred- and way to chicken to read his work!
    I did just finish Mockingjay though...ohmygoodness! What a crazy ending! I think it was a lot slower than the other two, and I was rooting for the other guy, but I liked how the story came full circle.
