In other news...

...I'm reading Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games series.
I'm a pretty avid reader and when I saw Stephen King give this series praise, I knew that it was going to be good. I'm on the third, and last, book of the series (Mockingjay) and I have to say that it is more addicting than I had first anticipated.
Quick synopsis copied from Wikipedia: Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where North America once stood. This is where a powerful government working in a central city called the Capitol holds power. In the book, the Hunger Games are an annual televised event where the Capitol chooses one boy and one girl from each district to fight to the death. The Hunger Games exist to demonstrate not even children are above the Capitol's power.

Although this book is aimed for younger readers, I am really enjoying it.
