1. Happy Sunday! Are you ready for Tuesday? It's finally Mockingjay release day! I've really been enjoying the fake Mockingjay spoilers trend on Twitter, but I'm ready for the real thing. According to my friends at Scholastic, it will be available for download at midnight on my Kindle. As much as I wish there were a local midnight release party, I'm excited to be able to start reading at midnight in the comfort of my own home. In the interest of making it through work Tuesday morning, my plan is to actually go to bed early Monday night, then wake up at 5 a.m. to get four hours of reading in before work. It's a short day at work, and I hope I'm able to finish it in the afternoon before meeting friends for dinner. If not, I'll have time to finish it Wednesday.
Oblong Books in Millerton, and I'm going. I'm thrilled to meet her and support a fantastic independent bookstore too! Yes, I'll probably tweet from the event, and I'll take pictures and bring back a full report for you. If the unthinkable happens, and Gale doesn't make it, I may have a few words for Ms. Collins.
3. The week keeps getting better: my birthday is Friday. It was so considerate of Scholastic to schedule the release of Mockingjay the week of my visit, and I'm thrilled to meet Suzanne Collins too. Happy birthday to me! I get to spend all day Friday with Mr. Nomadreader, and I'm thrilled. I can't think of a better way to turn thirty.
After a two weeks working about twice as many hours as I normally do, I am welcoming a week of birthday celebrations, Suzanne Collins and more Booker longlist reading.
