2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins ($17.99)
3. Tricks by Ellen Hopkins ($18.99)

My Thoughts:
* Hardcover Fiction, enjoy it while it lasts. Next week (and for many weeks to follow, I presume), this list will be owned by Dan Brown.
* Young Adults, did I call it? I did call it, didn't I? I'm such a genius.
* By the by, the summary for Tricks is, "A novel in verse about five teenagers who become prostitutes." Well, what could be better subject matter for poetry that teen prostitution.

Your Thoughts: Go ahead and admit it, you picked up your copy of The Lost Symbol on Tuesday.
