For "Mythology-Minded" Readers

Summer Reading with Rick Riordan
Seems as though East Hampton's tween-age readers are still enjoying the author's Percy Jackson and Kane Chronicles series.  You might also like to make some summer reading time for the Heroes of Olympus series which picks up where Percy left off. The only downside is you will have to wait until fall 2012 for the third in this five-book series.

In the mean time, you can check out Disney-Hyperion's Greeks vs. Romans web site where you will be asked to decide "Whose camp are you in?" Check back often because right now there's not much there... there. Also have fun on Riordan's author site.
