This blog follows my adventures in BookCrossing--the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise. It is a fascinating exercise in fate, karma, or whatever you want to call the chain of events that can occur between two or more lives and one piece of literature.

The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan
Read on my Kindle at the insistence of Niece No. 6. She and Nephews No. 2 and 3 are big fans of The Olympians series of books and I can see why. I'm sure they would have captured my imagination had they been written when I was their age. They serve as a nice introduction to Greek and Roman mythology and made me want to refamiliarize myself with the original stories—they made me want to read more, which is a fantastic result for today's kids.
