I just pre-ordered my copy of Catching Fire! I don't like the Australian edition at all. I want the hardback with the gorgeous red cover so have just paid a small fortune to have it shipped over from the US with the a hardcover copy of The Hunger Games. Plus I don't trust an online store to pack it properly--I've received too many bent books through the post recently so bookshop prices it is. I don't care that it's a quarter of a week's pay, IT'S WORTH IT.
Six weeks to go. (The Australian release date is September 7, not 1, so I guess my shipped edition will arrive about the time the soft-covers hit the stores.)
