 One time I asked the hubby to get a book for me from our room.  "Which tower?", he asks, and I giggled.  Because in our room, there are four piles of books which we have since christened Jenga Tower 1 to 4.  I need to seriously organize my books.  I've got piles everywhere. Most have been read (and reread) and, well, there's a lot on my to be read list.  I'm a fast reader though, so I constantly get new books.  So my books are literally everywhere -- on the sofa in the upstairs living room, in the car, in shopping bags on the bedroom floor.  

There are a couple of titles I've read recently that I really, really loved.  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is one of them.  I've read it twice already as well as it's sequel Catching Fire.  It's a fantastic three part series set in the future.  The writing, character development is excellent. The story is simply riveting.  I don't normally have the attention needed to listen to audio books but I've been paying attention every time the hubby listens.  Yes, I have finally gotten him to "read" fiction books -- through audio books.  He's loving it so far.  Too bad I've just lent my copies to my niece.  The audio book is too slow paced to me and I wanted to reread the ending.  Needless to say, I am already antsy to read Book 3 Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games) coming this August.  So, run, don't walk, and get to reading books 1 and 2.  You won't regret it.
