Never read any Percy Jackson books. Saw the movie though and it wasn't bad.

The movie was.... let's just say that you can't use the movies if you want to review the series like you can with Harry Potter. :T It's a nice movie, but as an adaption it was ehm... lackluster. Can't think of a better word than that rn.

And I'm glad you recommended the series to me! I did have my doubts for a short while but I think it's gonna be a great read. I love the sense of humour in the book too! <3

I just realised an e-reader is the perfect way to read manga.

Prolly shouldn't buy one just yet though, considering I desperately need a functioning cellphone.

I haven't picked up a book in about 3 months. I just can't get into reading like I used to.

Yeah I can imagine that with all the pre-quest stuff when Percy had to get to the camp and learn some things first, but once the quest began eee. <3

Maybe you just haven't picked up the right book or book series to get you back into reading.

A year ago I could've read that, but it seems I've forgotten how to solve binary. That's a shame. D:

217949.

Trying to figure out what that binary says is too much effort haha.

I'm currently rereading through the Warrior series. Well, the first one. Then maybe I'll actually bother to read past whatever point I stopped with the second series since my sister has it. Also need to somehow get myself through Bluestar's Prophecy.
I'm not sure if any of you know what I'm talking about. Except maybe Drakow.
