When the library couldn’t get Catching Fire in quite fast enough for me, my neighbor graciously brought over a stack of books from her book club assortment. Fiction that I probably wouldn’t have picked up on my own. The first one I picked was Water For Elephants. Working with (mostly) elderly I appreciated the scenes in the nursing home, but I will admit to a bit of speed reading to get through them. When I did a bit of reading about the book and the author, I discovered that she wrote the book as a part of NaNoWriMo. It wasn’t exactly my cup of tea, but you’ve got to hand it to someone who can crank out a novel that good in such a short period of time.
Update: I saw the movie last Saturday. Not a fan.
