Catching Fire!

At about 5:00 last night I sat down at the computer to check my email and such. I also went to our library website to request something. When checking my account it said I had one of my holds in. I checked to see which book had come in and I suddenly got excited. I had been number 68 when I first put this book on hold and knew I would have to wait for a long time before getting to read this book. It just came out a few weeks ago so I was surprised it came in so quickly. I guess the good people in line before me either went out and bought the book or read it quickly and then returned it so those of us further down the list could get it quickly.
Even though I had dinner in the oven I knew I needed to run over to the library and get this book. The library closes at 6:00 on Saturday night and wouldn't be open again until Tuesday. So I told my husband I was going (He would need to watch what I had in the oven and also answer Molly's cry when it came) and jumped into the car. Within 15 min I had return home again with my book.

I haven't gotten a chance yet to start it. But I am sure I will be finished before I head back to the Library for our usual visit on Thursday so the next people on the list can have it all the quicker.

***Update*** I finished it Monday morning. It took less the 12 hours even with all the distractions I get. I couldn't put it down. So when does book 3 come out. I really want to know what happens next!

I placed this book on hold at my library. I'm #790. It might be a while, or I'll just have to buy it:)
