Promotion & Contest - "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins

Today is the official release day for Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I have to say The Hunger Games was perhaps my favourite YA read last year and I have really been anticipating this follow up.

SciFiGuy.ca is participating in a fantastic promotion to launch Catching Fire. I have three (3) terrific prize packages to be won, each consisting of the following items -
  • A limited edition T-shirt (see the photo at the end of the post)
  • A collectible mocking jay pin
  • A copy of Catching Fire
CONTEST GUIDELINES:
  1. In the spirit of the "Games" all you need to do to enter the contest is leave a comment and tell us what your favourite Olympic event is and why.
  2. The promotion runs from September 1 to September 15, 2009. Winners will be announced on or around September 16, 2009.
  3. Open to participants with a United States or Canadian mailing address.
COULD YOU SURVIVE ON YOUR OWN, IN THE WILD, WITH EVERYONE FIGHTING AGAINST YOU?

Twenty- four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

  1. OMG I can't wait to read this! Great giveaway

    I don't really have a favourite Olympic event. But I enjoy watching ice hockey in the winter olympics and field hockey and soccer during the summer olympics. I actually love watching the opening and closing ceremonies too :D

  12. Looks to be a great read!

    For Winter Olympics, it would have to be Skeleton. The speed, the daring, the precision... I'm always enrapt.

    For Summer Olympics, my fave would have to be either Volleyball or Olympics. Both are great fun to watch. Great athletes, jumping tremendously high, the strength, agility... amazing to watch.

  15. I can't wait to read this book!

    The position for my favourite Olympic event is tied between three sports: hockey, gymnastics, and snowboard cross. Hockey because I'm a stereotypical Canadian, gymnastics because it's amazing to see what the athletes can do with their bodies, and snowboard cross because it's just so darn fun. I can't wait to watch it and hockey this winter!

  45. Olympic games: This is totally girly, (and I'm way too old for girly, haha) but my favorite winter olympic games is ice skating, especially when the skaters to something unique, like use rock or hip-hop music. I've always like the skating, ever since I was a little bitty girl.
    My favoriet summer games is track-I'll never ever run like those guys can.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oooo...great contest. I can't wait to read this.

    I favor the winter Olympics over the summer ones, just because the sports are more varied and interesting. I really love speed skating. Watching the guys and gals dance on a razor's edge (literally) around and around the track makes me bite my nails and cheer.

    Favorite Summer Olympic event: Equestrian, just watching the smooth movements and the almost psychic connection between rider and horse.
    Synchronized swimming is a close second. Those athletes are just amazingly disciplined.

    Winter Olympics: Speed skating, they move so damn fast!

  87. Hmmm my favorite? Well, gymnastics because the build of the athletes to do all the tumbling is impressive. And then diving because I am amazed at how close they come to the edge of the board/platform and have no fear. But I will always remember the track and field event during the Atlanta Olympics. I was there the day that Jackie Joyner-Kersee pulled her hamstring. jimmneygot@hotmail.com

  98. Michael Phelps is an American hero; he personifies hard work and a desire to succeed. Michael earned what he has unlike the wall street barons and crooked politicians of the world. The man is an American hero and most of us are proud and awed by his accomplishments in the pool. the fact that Phelps likes a glass smoking pipe, a hand rolled cigarette or big fat bong should in no way diminish the way we feel of the man’s accomplishments. Michael Phelps is doing his job and doing it to the degree of historical human greatness. Our admiration of this man does not give us the right to control his individual destiny or to judge his private choices through a lens of misguided morality. If one can achieve our world’s highest honors then they should be "free" in this country to their own pursuit of happiness.

  99. My favorite olympic event has gotta be gymnastics. I especially enjoy the moment just before they start thier routines. They stop, take a deep breath and smile at the crowds. Then suddenly thier facial expressions change to looks of utter concentration and focus. You can tell want to win--desire to win (years of training have climaxed to this moment). Then they begin...

    This reminds me of Katniss. She caters to the crowd but just before The Hunger Games, she focuses determined to use every talent she has in order to survive.

    I loved "Catching Fire" it was Magnificent.

  104. I've just finished the first book. My daughter has handed her copy of the second book to friends at school... So I don't know how long my wait is going to be!!!

    My favorite Olympic sport of the Modern Games is Croquet. It was only played in the 1900 Paris games with about 10 people... but it _was_ the first time women had competed in the games... most of the competetors were from France, including the women (Filleaul Brohy and Marie Ohnier). There is very little information about Croquet as an olympic sport... but it is my favorite because not only do I enjoy hitting little balls between wickets with my family and friends, but it also fascinates me that the first time women competed in the Modern Games they competed against men.

    ReplyDelete
  105. My friends and I have been obsessed with Suzanne Collins since the Underland Chronicles, and we're loving this series just as much as the first. :) I can't wait for the third book to come out!

    Anyways... Olympic Games, hmm? There's no question- my favorite has to be fencing. It doesn't just require strength, or just require speed, or agility, or anything else- it's a combination of everything that not only makes it beautiful to watch, but also makes it fair for everyone. Fencing is one of the only sports in which woman can compete against men, and that's why- skill and agility, even perception, can make up for a lack in physical strength or speed.

  117. Thanks for holding this contest! It's GREAT!

    Favorite Olympic events...hm, for the Summer Games, gymnastics is always fun, as well as swimming, diving, and synchronized swimming. For the Winter Games, ice skating (and ice dancing) is very entertaining. :)

  119. My favorite Olympic sport is gymnastics. There's just so much variety to it, and it's the sport that I always watch during the Olympics. The 2008 Olympics were great, especially when one of the gymnasts from China had background music that I recognized~ =)

  120. I love curling. It's like giant life size shuffleboard. Except on ice and with brooms.

  122. Sweet. I'd love to win.

    Gotta go with the Biathlon. Because really, if you're a great Biathlete, aren't you just a James Bond villian?* And it's the only Olympic Event I've been to.

    *Yeah, I stole that from RvB.

  124. My favorite Olympic events have to be the swimming competitions, and the weight lifting.
