Eh?Eh! You're a summer baby! That's the best time to be born. The parents got bored in the winter and cuddled.

Greg Summerbaby nerd!

I wanted to call you a nerd for waiting, but then there was talk about when you were born so I included them both, but you are right it doesn't make sense. You are still a nerd though with all of your HG3'ing!!!


Joshua Nomen-Mutatio Nerrrrrdddddddd.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio I was conceived in the spring because Easter makes my parents horny. Gross.

I miss you guys.


message 24: by Greg (new)

Greg We miss you too Paul.


message 25: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine I don't miss him.


message 26: by Greg (new)

Greg He was way before your time, Paul was the art lead when I started and when there were books still in the section and not just big empty spaces.


message 27: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine I changed my mind, I do miss him then.


message 28: by karen (new)

karen he used to give good arch looks.


message 29: by Katyana (new)

Katyana Haha, until I read the GoodReads comments, I didn't even know this was a YA series. If it makes you feel better, you aren't the only 32 year old impatiently waiting for the final book! This series is riveting!


message 30: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine plus you are never too old to be immature!!


message 31: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra Day after my birthday too! I'll be 29. Yes, it is pathetic, but this trilogy is worth looking-a-fool!


message 32: by karen (new)

karen happy birthday, fellow leo/virgo cusp!


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

The Mockingjay launch party is going to be at Books of Wonder and Suzanne Collins is going to read from the beginning of the book...


message 34: by karen (new)

karen

do tell me more. is it a midnight magic party? can adults go? is this the books of wonder that is TWO BLOCKS AWAY FROM WHERE I WORK??


message 35: by Courtney (new)

Courtney now i am in anticipation for this book. but i haven't read the second one yet so maybe i'll let it sit on my reading list until this comes out but that's probably not going to happen. cute kitties. :D that last one looks like my cat on steroids.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

yes, that's the one, karen! here are the details:

Books of Wonder will close at 7pm as usual on Monday, August 23rd, then reopen at 8pm. Beginning at 8pm, there will be two lines to check in. One line will be for those who have paid in advance to pick up their vouchers that will be exchanged at midnight for you copy of Mockingjay. The other line will be for those who wish to pay for their copies that night. After paying, those customers will also receive their voucher to be exchanged at midnight for a copy of Mockingjay. Numbers will be given out as you receive your vouchers. However, we should warn you that the pre-paid line will move much faster (since there will be no waiting for people to pay) and so those folks will get to the front of their lines faster and so most likely receive lower numbers. After you have received your vouchers and your number on line, you are free to enjoy all the entertainment and activities until just before midnight, when SUZANNE COLLINS will read. After her reading, we will line people up in numerical order and beginning at midnight, start handing out books in number order for people to get their books stamped by Ms. Collins.


So don't miss out on this gala event! Going from 8:00pm to 1:30am, the Books of Wonder official Mockingjay launch party is sure to be a night you and your teen readers will never forget!


It also says:
As Ms. Collins has to leave promptly at 1:30am, books will be given out and stamped in the order in which customers check-in at our front counter on Monday night.

She really has someplace to be at 2 in the morning? Interesting...

SC hardly ever does events so this is a pretty big deal, though.

karen i think i am going to do it!! they sell cupcakes there too!

thank you so much for letting me know!! you will go too, yes?


message 38: by [deleted user] (last edited Jul 08, 2010 07:03PM) (new)

they do sell cupcakes, don't they!

i was not planning on going but i will meet you there if you are going to go!

btw, i totally quoted the wrong part. i meant to include a sentence about how SC has a finger injury and that is why she is stamping instead of signing.


message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

it's going to be CRAZY there. she NEVER does events. and the store isn't that big. i went to see neil gaiman there and had to wait five hours to get my books signed. on the other hand, i read the lightening thief during that time, and ate pastries, so it was certainly not a waste.


message 40: by karen (new)

karen come on, collins, heal!! katniss wouldn't let a finger injury get in her way...

yeah - let's do it (twss)


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

okay. let's get there early and get good numbers and then eat cake.


message 42: by karen (new)

karen and shove the teen girls out of our way.

I was going to be mean about that now I can't


message 44: by [deleted user] (new)

i'm sure you can if you want to!


message 45: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine does that mean the book will not be worth so much? I can see the ebay entries book stamped by susan collins.


message 46: by karen (new)

karen i am not selling mine anyway. it is my birthday present to myself!

why were you going to be mean?? is my mean-radar off??


message 47: by karen (new)

karen ha!! i haven't actually started it - i rushed through my last dawn powell pages as i walked home last night and after i catch up on a bunch of things i should have been doing yesterday, i m going to crack that sucker open and enjoy it at a leisurely pace.


message 48: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! So!!! How many teens did you knock over to get inside? Did you turn to the last page and read the last sentence?


message 49: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Karen, happy birthday! I'm on chapter 3. So far, it does not disappoint.


message 50: by [deleted user] (new)
