At the request of our pet badger OBrienetcetc, I am opening a new post for suggested books. We entertained ourselves for quite awhile last May with Carolinaeasy's Favorite Book fanpost (doesn't a year go by quickly?). So tell us what you are reading or planning to read this summer, what your favorite books are if you weren't around last year, or who your favorite authors are. We can even talk about the virtues of kindles vs nooks vs books if you want.
To start things off - I'm reading (on my new Kindle) the third book in the The Hunger Games series - The Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. They're about to start filming a movie version of the trilogy.
