The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette offers a playful correction to mistaken book title

An Arkansas Democrat-Gazette writer offers a playful correction to a mistaken book title:

Leave it to a middle school librarian to catch us. Those people notice everything.

We recently praised The Hunger Games trilogy in this column. We liked it so much we got the name of the second book wrong. Of course it's Catching Fire, not whatever we said last week. Imagine holding a book all those hours and then getting the title wrong. In the statewide newspaper. That takes some doing. It's like covering a football game and screwing up the final score.

Thank you to our loyal, literate, and observant readers for keeping us straight. It can't be easy.
