You know what Christmas presents I think I end up loving most?
In fifth grade I got Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. By the time we got to California the next day, I had devoured it and was begging my mom to buy me the next two.
The year I was sick during Christmas and had to stay home instead of going to my grandparents' house, I had Ella Enchanted and The Golden Compass to keep me company.
This year, I think I surpassed my own speed reading record by consuming Catching Fire (minus eight chapters I read in Borders yesterday afternoon) in approximately three hours.
And this time, I can't beg my mom to go buy me the next book because
IT DOESN'T COME OUT UNTIL AUGUST 24th.
You must all read these books so we can go to the midnight release party that Borders will surely throw.
My recommendation of these marvelous works of storytelling is my Christmas present to you.
Merry Christmas and happy reading!
