Catching Fire, the much anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games will be released Sept. 1. The fine folks at NPR are providing a chance to read (and listen to) a chapter now. From the press release:

On September 1, fans of last year’s young adult best-seller The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins will get their hands on the much-anticipated second installment of a planned trilogy, Catching Fire. NPR Books is offering an exclusive “First Look” at the second chapter of Collins’ new novel one week before its publication date, along with a free download of the audio book version of Chapter 2. Both the audio and text versions are available at NPR Books.
