The Lost Hero!!!! Rick Riordan's first installment in the new Olympians series. For all the Percy Jackson fans out there this is a big, big day. I badly want to run out and buy a copy first thing (though I won't be able to read it for a couple more weeks yet. The monsters are great but it really doesn't qualify as scary), we'll see if the Turkey tryptophan induced coma allows me to get up early enough to get it before work.
Rick is going on another tour, this time without at Canadian stop, but if he's in your area go, he's great fun in person. Also he's doing a live simulcast tomorrow from Camp Half Blood (YES! some wonderful people made a real camp that real kids can go to! how cool is that??), I'm not sure what it in-tales exactly but you need to register. So head on over to the Heroes of Olympus website for that as well as half a dozen other fun things.
Random Magic) in a great guest post about witches in history. She also talks a little about her book which is top of my To Be Read list, it sounds so wacky and fun I can't wait to get to it (besides its riddled with vampires, witches and mania so it totally qualifies for my giving me the creeps even though it's not horror).
Happy Thanksgiving. Even if it's not a holiday where you are just eat yourself to death over the course of the day and it'll be a Happy Thanksgiving all around!
