whatever happens

Oh frabjous day! What could have been a miserable morning has been made gleeful by Audible.com. First, after fixing a screw-up on my account, they gave me an extra credit. Then I find out that they finally have The Lord of the Rings (also The Hobbit) in their service. I've been waiting for those and for the Harry Potter stories - I own LotR audio CDs, but the MP3s are easier. And then - leap for joy! - I see there's a new Percy Jackson story!! So I went shopping at Audible, and now have lots of good stuff to read.

New audio books are always a treat! Especially if they're ones you've been waiting for.

I'm glad some happy things are happening in your life. *hugs*
I *just* finished the new Percy Jackson and I LOVED it. It got off to a rocky start, I felt, but once they made it to Rome it was just like old times. The only real quibble I have is that Percy and Annabeth are such STRONG POV characters that the other 5 demigods, even the other two POV folks get overshadowed. But, then, I don't necessarily have a problem with that since I adore those two and think they SHOULD be the main characters to everyone else's supporting players.

The ending absolutely gave me chills. Well played, Riordan.
