Suzanne Collins makes a special request of Mockingjay readers

We’re all anxiously awaiting the release of Mockingjay. As we continue the 13 District Blog Tour, here’s a message straight from the author while we wait for August 24th:

Dear Readers,

I can’t tell you how excited I am for the release of Mockingjay on August 24th, and how grateful I am for all the anticipation that’s been expressed in advance of the release date. One of the most important things to me is that everyone in the world is going to be able to experience the final book of The Hunger Games all at the same time, and be able to discover what happens in the book without hearing about it elsewhere first. Word will certainly travel fast, but I urge you – before or immediately after August 24th – to please respect the other Hunger Games fans worldwide and avoid sharing any spoilers, so that the conclusion of Katniss’s story can unfold for each reader the way it was meant to unfold.

I am eagerly looking forward to August 24th and the entrance of Mockingjay in the world. Then (and only then) let the conversations begin!

I don’t under estimate your writing Ms Collins so anything possible.
