When Nina Jacobson was the president of Buena Vista Motion Pictures, she was pitched my Learning to Fly. She didn't like the screenwriter's take, and it never got made into a movie, but still it was very exciting.
Anyone going to BEA in May? My offer still stands: If you get an ARC of Catching Fire, the next in the series, and loan it to me, I promise to read it in three days, not eat while reading it or otherwise risk befouling it, pay for shipping both ways, AND donate $25 to the charity of your choice. [Interested in joining me - reading the book after me under the terms? Let me know in the comments.]
