The fifth Percy Jackson book was released today.
Our copy, pre-ordered from Amazon.com, arrived right before lunch.
So far we've read 2 chapters aloud, mostly to mitigate arguments over who gets to read it first (cheaper than buying 2 copies, plus no arguments about who is skimming instead of really reading, etc.). When I'm not reading it aloud I've been reduced to carrying it around so no one peeks at the last chapter. Except me, of course. Heh.
Life will resume after we make it through 21 more chapters.
