Book Blogger Appreciation Week is here! To celebrate, here's the first of three giveaways that will be featured here at Bookish Ruth.
One lucky winner will receive the first three books in Rick Riordan's young adult series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I have brand new paperback copies of The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters and The Titan's Curse. Not familiar with the Percy Jackson series? Check out the blurb for The Lightning Thief:
Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse. Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. Percy's mom decides its time that he knew the truth about where he came from. She sends Percy to Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
Sounds good, huh?
