NPR Books Grid: 8/27-9/2

So I finished Mockingjay last weekend.  Boy, was I disappointed by the ending.  It reminded me of my college days when I’d stay up all night to write a paper and by 5 a.m. I was so fried (not to mention desperate) that I’d throw together the conclusion and pray (make that pretend) that I would get a decent grade.


Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, genre, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), and interview hyperlink.
