I recently finished reading the first two books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I enjoyed both stories and am looking forward to the next three. I found that the stories brought back all the Greek mythology I had learned about in school, and I thought I would share a few of the Greek Mythology books I remember.

1. Greek Gods and Heroes by Robert Graves

2. The Greek Myths by Robert Graves (His books really are well written)

3. Ingri and Edgar Parin D’ Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths (the first book I ever read on Greek Mythology and one I still refer to every once in a while).

Plus, the library carries many individual stories, such as that of the Minotaur, Cyclops, The Odyssey, The Golden Fleece and many more.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief will be out in theaters President’s Day weekend. Be sure to read the book before you see the movie.
