We went to see "Lightning Thief" today (opening day) at the theatre. William started the first book of the set of five last Wednesday and I told him that we could go to the movie if he could finish the first one (350 pages) by today. William is currently reading book five! That's about 150 pages per day. The movie was fairly good. Margaret (who also read the book) says the movie lacks the subtlety of the book. I'm certain that anyone studying classics is appalled (I'm already seeing banter over the internet) but whatever. It's just a kid's movie about Greek gods.
