Everyday EMS Reading: 3 Lists of Trilogy Books

Long sci-fi, fantasy, or crime novels make for good reading while posting or between calls. I just finished the first book in the Hunger Games trilogy (awesome). When one book is not enough, three is even better. Three of my favorite triologies:

Lord of the Rings:
Read these books, even if you have seen the movies oodles of times.
1. The Fellowship of the Ring
2. The Two Towers
3. The Return of the Ring
Bonus: read the Hobbit before or after.

Millennium Trilogy:
I read the trilogy in April of this year. I started and couldn’t stop, reading the complete set in about eight days, including reading the final book on my phone using the Kindle app.
1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
2. The Girl Who Played with Fire
3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
Bonus: last time I checked (and watched) you can stream the Swedish movies of the Millennium trilogy on Netflix. I think an American movie version is coming out soon.

Hunger Games Trilogy
I found this trilogy when my Kindle Fire came with a one month trial of Amazon Prime (not a transformer) which includes the Kindle lending library. I believe I get one free ebook, from a select list, each month. I am not sure if I can wait to a month to read book two.
1. The Hunger Games
2. Catching Fire
3. MockingJay
Bonus: read these before the Hunger Games movie premiers in March 2012.
