In other news, I just got back from a signing in Nashville, wrapping up the Barnes & Noble summer reading program. Before the event, I got a tour of the reconstructed Parthenon, which is quite amazing. The statue of Athena must be seen to be believed. I understand the film crew for the Lightning Thief movie was there the week before I was. Why? Well, you’ll have to wait and see, but as I said, you should expect the movie to be different than the book.

About a month ago I bought these cool Percy Jackson and the Olympian Mythology Trivia Cards for $3.25 at Barnes & Noble. You can purchase the cards here. grayx3eyedsoul (from Cabin Three) suggested that I scan some of the cards so I did! Here's the Synopsis on the product that Barnes & Noble wrote;

How well do you know the monsters and gods of Mount Olympus? This set of 88 trivia cards will test your knowledge of the many monsters, heroes, and gods Percy Jackson comes across on his adventures. The cards are a fun and easy way to identify the many characters of Greek mythology and learn about their origins and actions.
