good read

So, last night I finished reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series from Rick Riordan. Very fun. It has a Harry Potter feel to it. Kid abandoned by father, finds out he is a demi-god and he has powers that mere mortals only dream of. It was a fun ride that took me through 5 books and roughly 1500 pages.

Where HP is told from a 3rd person PoV, PJ is told from the first person. This worked well for this book. Percy could inject his observations and wit into the story and it made for a great read because of it.

Anyway, now I have to dig through my pile of books and figure out what to read next. It is a deep pile, one that apparently has no bottom (mostly because I have no willpower).

Happy Thursday!

I've been wanting to read those for ages-- sounds awesome. You've lit a fire under me.

Now if I could light one under myself and chew through this to-read pile. Dammit!

Katey, you will enjoy them. I was surprised how much I did.

Danielle, and the wallet light. :)
