I had never even heard of Hunger Games until Kate got and read all three this weekend on her Nook. Yesterday on the metro I saw half a dozen people with the same damn book.
I had this experience with Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a couple months back too.
Today I am reading Wickens's Macroeconomic Theory: A Dynamic General Equilibrium Approach in preparation for my midterm tonight... I wonder when they're going to make a movie out of that?
Speaking of things I didn't know until the last couple days: apparently Woody Harrelson's dad was a contract killer.
