    I keep hearing about the Hunger Games. I know there is a movie coming out soon. Is the book any good?

    I've not read it. Tell me a bit about it. I'm looking for something relaxing to read, would this fit the bill?

    It is a trilogy. They are amazing!!! I don't normally like anything sci-fi but LOVE these!!

    And I would not call them relaxing at all. They are violent (though not nearly as violent as I was told they would be. I read much more graphic stuff) and just really good.

    By relaxing I mean, fiction. I read many professional things, so it's relaxing for me to read something that doesn't have to do with physiology, gerontology, Alzheimer's Disease, Resident Centered Care, or anatomy... pharmacology...

    So glad to see you Trish!!!

    I didn't like the 3rd book either. But I think that's due to the fact that I knew it was ending.

    So is the film the whole trilogy or just one of the books? I love this kind of stuff and plan to go see it at the cinema, love sci fi, it looks a bit like the running man which I. Really liked

    Amen Sister!

    Relaxing is a book that has nothing to do with criminology and psychology for me!



    There are several books in the past that received a lot of attention that I ended up reading and liking (i.e.: Da Vinci Code, Harry Potter, etc), but I'm not a big sci-fi fan.

    On a side note: I did see Lenny Kravitz in the trailer....yummy.

    I've just noticed your countdown timer, you only have 153 days left of your internship









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
