New Book in Percy Jackson Series

Hey Guys,

I'm not hearing from you, so I hope you are so busy reading and enjoying your summer, you haven't had time to post. I happened to read a blog from one of my favorite author's who wrote a book for teachers, and she was talking about the new book from Rick Riordan called, The Lost Hero. It is his new book in The Heroes of Olympus Series. You can read a sneak peak from the first two chapters on Rick's website - www.camphalfblood.com. The password is NEWHERO. It is coming out in October. Let me know what you think about his new book!!!

New Website

Hey Guys -

I just found a new reading website called Lit for Kid. You can find it at www.litforkids.com. At the top of the website you can click on Readers by Age and choose the category that fits you to find a list or suggestions of great books. You can also click on Kids Recommend to find out what kids your age think is fun to read. Finally, there is a place to click to find other websites about reading. Let me know what you think about the website or post your thoughts about any other website you find that might be fun for all of us. Later~~~

New Series

Hey Readers,

I was surfing around the Barnes and Noble website and noticed a series I had not heard of before. It is called the 100 Cupboards Series. I put the first three books on my Shelfari Bookshelf on the blog, so you can check out the short summaries. It looks pretty cool, and on the B&N website, it said that if you liked The Red Pyramid, you would like this series. I guess I'll have to purchase those books for my library. Let me know what you think about the story when you are reading it.

Hey Guys,

I hope you are having a good start to your summer, and I also hope you will take advantage of keeping in touch with your friends by blogging about your reading here :) I look forward to logging in and reading about all YOUR reading. We need to keep each other posted about new books that you find and those long awaited sequels - like The Maze Runner sequel. I can't wait to find out what happened to all those kids. The first book I'm going to read this summer is The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. I know many of you have read it, so I'm anxious to tell you what I think and read your replies. Finally, I'll post your recommendations on my bookshelf so everyone can browse the online library when you are looking for something new to read. Happy Reading!!
