More Winners!

2 Aug

Thanks to all of you who made the first discussion post such a huge success! You guys really had some interesting insights on Katniss and Peeta and the rest of the Hunger Games team – even Cinna!

Congratulations to Shaianne and Cheryl R. on winning two more of our Mockingjay pins! Again, there are definitely more give-aways, so don’t fear, you’ll have more chances to get your hands on one if you haven’t yet!

See you guys in the next discussion post about Part III of Hunger Games on Friday 🙂

    Congrats to the winners, but seriously.. Scholastic is loosing THOUSANDS of dollars by not selling these. I really want one and they can’t be found anywhere… I think Suzanne Collins should sue for negligence.

    Also, there are no release parties in all of Las Vegas… What’s the deal?! I go to the bookstore and there’s an entire bookcase full of Twilight junk and then they only have a few copies of each HG book with a small flier saying you can pre-order Mockingjay… I mean, this is the height of anticipation for the new book and you’re giving us no opportunity to spend our money…

    Whoever’s in charge of merchandising should be fired. It’s seriously ridiculous.

      We certainly appreciate your passion for Mockingjay! The Scholastic Book Clubs pins are a promotional item and were not licensed for sale. And while we encourage and support book release parties, it’s up to the bookstores themselves to host their own — you should contact your local bookstore and see what their plans are. Also, have you seen the recent Publishers Weekly piece about the marketing of Mockingjay? It lists some of the exciting merchandise available which should help allay your concerns.
