Look Out Harry Potter!



I will be the first to admit that I don't really read Young Adult books. I already have a thousand adult books in my TBR pile, I don't really have time, right now to read kids books as well.

But, that doesn't mean that I don't know what sells. It is my job to know what sells. And Rick Riordan has a hit series on his hands. The kids *LOVE* it. The latest book in the Percy Jackson series,The Last Olympian, released on the same day as the latest Sookie Stackhouse, Dead & Gone book & Percy Jackson kicked Sookie's butt in sales. Hands down. In fact, this summer, Rick Riordan & the Percy Jackson series is the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading author. Kids (and parents) love him.

This may be old news to some of you, but I heard the name, Percy Jackson, on Access Hollywood tonight & started digging. It looks like Percy Jackson will be hitting the screens February 12,2010. With an All Star supporting cast, (I call Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson, & Kevin McKidd All Star, to name a few) there is no doubt that the movie will be a hit.

If you have tweens, boy or girl, and you are not already familiar with Percy, you might want to check it out. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

I have a 10 year old boy who devoured this series over Christmas vacation. I just bought him the last one last week and he read it in 2 days. He loves them and I love them for making him love reading!!!

I've wondered about these, but not read them.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
