NEW Percy Jackson covers | Forever BookishPlus: a drinking game for the movie! Ok, real talk: I actually don't care about covers until they're in my grabby little hands. And even then, I'm still fairly dense. I read words, not pictures, y'all. Maybe I just never grew out of my Greek mythology phase.

My fourth grader has read over pages of this book during the last couple weeks. Although he prefers the 39 Clues serious for more action, I find this book a more valuable reading accomplishment. The exposure to mythology will help to pronounce the names. But, more importantly, if you are on the AR system for reading, this book is worth 13 points. Riordan's 39 Clue book was worth several points and is what helped to choose our current title. Having seen the recent flim also helped to make the title a good current choice.
