Percy Jackson update!

I just got this info from Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson series. Check out this cool site! I should warn you of the sound effects. They caught me off guard! :)

The new Percy Jackson site, compliments of Hyperion Books for Children, is now live! Check it out for:
1) Exclusive cool artwork of Percy, Annabeth, and the rest of the gang.
2) A previously unavailable selection from Battle of the Labyrinth, chapter 1.
3) An online sweepstakes contest with the grand prize: An all-expense paid trip for you and one friend to Camp Half-Blood in Austin, Texas this summer where I will be appearing in person!
4) More cool information about the tour and the series.A section with games and activities will be activated in May, so keep checking back!

Battle of the Labyrinth is released May 6 and I know our library will be purchasing at least two copies.

PS I finished A Circle Unbroken and am now reading The 13 Clocks by James Thurber.

What are YOU reading? plus a question...

I haven't heard from you guys in a while and wanted to see what everyone is reading. I've lately been spending countless hours watching Kenna flip through Tails by Matthew Van Fleet. When she's sleeping, I'm reading A Circle Unbroken and catching up on magazines or sleep. I look forward to hearing what you are reading or just finished.

Question: What good vampire books have you read? I'm always in need of suggestions for people who loved Twilight and/or the Cirque du Freak series.
