Be the First to Know!

A Checklist for Identifying the First-To-Know Syndrome:
 Check all that apply.

__YES __NO  1. Do you envy those who just seem to know when the latest and greatest books first come out?
__YES __NO  2. Do you look forward to each Tuesday, hoping to be the first to nab the latest DVD releases?
__YES __NO  3. Do you find yourself hunting for something to read with little time to browse?
__YES __NO  4. Do you wish you were first in line for that new Jodi Picoult/James Patterson/Sandra Brown book?
__YES __NO  5. Do you have a hard time keeping up with the newest movie, music, and book releases? 

If you checked ‘YES’ to one or more of the above symptoms, there is a high possibility that you have what is known as First-To-Know Syndrome. First-To-Know Syndrome typically affects consumers of media (books, CDs, DVDs, etc.) who enjoy anywhere from 1 book/CD/DVD per year to 5 or more per day. Symptoms can affect anyone of any age. The Syndrome, if untreated, can persist for weeks.
