I was on an unexpected trip out to Western Kansas and my iPad was losing charge so I desperately needed a paperprint BOOK to read. While frantically perusing the shelves at the Midway Chicago airport, trying to recollect the authors names* that I keep saying I want to read, my eyes fell upon The HUNGER GAMES.
Grabbed it, plunked down a $20 bill and ran back to the gate. I started immediately. I read after being told to queue up (Southwest style). I politely smiled and only showed the cover to the gentleman attempting to converse with me, “What are you reading?” [I suppose I was rude, since I usually love to engage in such conversation and initiate many in this very same manner!] I kept reading through take-off and only later, upon hearing that beep-tone that we are are free to unhook our seatbelts, did I see others standing up to gather their overhead luggage. Oh. We had landed.
It being midnight, I was not up to reading more during the hour drive home. But I did manage a few more pages before succumbing to sleep. I was able to finish the next day.
RATING: four slices of pie. Peeta could bake me a gorgeous pie, I expect.
