Five…Four…Three…Two…


It is ALMOST HERE, Bits and Bramblers. In TWELVE HOURS, you can go to a The Hunger Games and see read the book on the big screen. Are you excited? Come on…you’re pretty excited, right?!

But if it still seems too far away, here are a few things you can do to make the time go a little faster.

  • Want to know what fashions are popular in the Capital these days? Check out this Capital Couture page. Do some digging, and you’ll find pics and info on some of your favorite characters, like Effie, Cinna, and Katniss.
  • Speaking of the Capital, are you registered? Click here to do it officially…you’ll be assigned a district, and then you can upload a pic and put your “ID” on your Facebook or Twitter page!
  • You’ve still got time to head to your faaaaaavorite library and play Hunger Games Trivia for your chance to win fabulous prizes (like movie passes to a theater near you!)
  • After you do that, well…you could always read the book again. This way, you’ll get a refresher on the story, and you can pick the scenes you hope you’ll see in the movie (or the ones you definitely don’t want to see in the movie…)
  • Aaaaand you can watch the trailer again, of course…just one more time…

Okay…we’re about twelve hours away now, Bits and Bramblers. Hang in there, have fun, and…(wait for it…) “May the odds be ever in your favor!”



Watch This Now: Doctor Who


Ahhhh, winter. The snowy windy days get old quick…don’t they, Bits and Bramblers? Still, there’s an upside. When it’s cold and icky oustside, that makes it the perfect weather to wear PJs all day, curl up on the couch with some snacks, and watch some DVDs that you checked out from your faaaaaaavorite library.

And if you’re looking for a good TV show to watch…haaaaaave you tried Doctor Who? The show is sort of legendary, considering that it’s been on and off the air in the United Kingdom for nearly fifty years. So…how great is this show? Seriously…I don’t even like SciFi all that much, and I’m trying to come up with actual words to describe it’s complete and total awesomeness.

But you know what the coolest part is? I would never have watched the show if a few of your faaaaaavorite librarians hadn’t recommended it. I was all, “Yeah…I don’t know if it’s really my kind of thing,” but they wouldn’t give up until I’d tried it. So when I showed up a few days later blubbering, “TARDIS! Daleks! Sonic Screwdriver! WEEPING ANGELS!” They fully understood.

And now it’s your turn…head to your faaaaaaavorite library, and check out Doctor Who. Even though the show started back in the sixties, I recommend starting with Series One of the latest “reboot,” and sticking around for Series Five, and the Eleventh Doctor, who’s my personal favorite (What can I say? Bow ties are cool.) Seriously…check out the show, and WATCH IT NOW.

…After all, if you love it? You can always talk about the show with your faaaaavorite librarians.
