A first edition signed copy of The Hunger Games has been donated to be sold at Library fundraiser next week.
The donor of the invaluable book is either very generous or VERY absent minded — because the book was found in the middle of an box filled with books to be given away.
The beautiful Suzanne Collins signed book will be on display/sale at 3 Trades Lane,
District 12 Newtown CT., July 14-18.
All the richass Katniss lovers will have the chance to take the book home for just $2,500.
That's not a bad price… especially if you're from the Capital!

Don't hate The Games!
American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom has announced that The Hunger Games trilogy is among the most controversial books for schools.
This means of all the books in America this year, Suzanne Collins' three young adult novels have received the most formal, written complaints filed with a library or school requesting it be restricted or removed.
Most of the objectors say the books are "sexually explicit" and "unsuited to age group and violence."
Collins response to these complaints:
"That's not unreasonable. They are violent. It's a war trilogy."
Well, she's got a point!
Duh! Of course the book has violence, HOWEVER one of the series' most obvious themes is anti-violence.
What do U think? Should The Hunger Games should be allowed in schools?
