mockingjay mockingjay mockingjay!
No, I haven't read it yet. Yes, I'm dying to. Kyle and I are going to Costco as soon as he gets home from work and we're buying it. So far in this trilogy, I read the book as soon as possible and then read it out loud to Kyle on a car trip. He loves it and it's fun for me to read again--and believe me, it makes the trip go really fast! (We're too poor for the actual audiobook.) With this, the THIRD and FINAL installment (oh my gosh oh my gosh), I thought it would be fun to read it WITH him (still reading it out loud to him) before I've read it quickly on my own. We just finished Supernatural season 5 and can't get Lost season 6 for a few days, so we have nothing else to do anyways :) It will be torture to not read while he's at work, and reading out loud is definitely slower-going. But it will be so great to race through dinner because we're both so anxious to keep going, lay in bed and read it for ages and hate putting it down! Plus...it seems so old-timey to spend our evenings reading out loud. What a great activity.
(Originally, the plan was for me to read it now, and then Kyle would read it out loud while I was in labor, just to make the hospital stay more entertaining. But I hate to make Kyle wait that long to find out what happens, and what if we get interrupted by a dang baby being born? So I think we're going to watch Lost while we wait. Thank heavens for epidurals that make such things possible.)
I'm freakishly excited. I can hardly wait for Kyle to be done with work so we can get this party started.
