Author's Comment: Q: Did you ever think your books would get so popular?
A: I hoped the stories would get kids reading, but I never anticipated such exponential growth...'The Lightning Thief' was passed around from kid to kid, teacher to teacher, parent to parent, and the series got bigger with each book... I owe a special debt to the librarians of Texas, who embraced the books early on and did a huge amount of book-talking with their kids. Without them, I doubt the momentum would've built nearly as much or as quickly. Still, I have trouble thinking in terms of millions. I measure success by anecdotes - the kid who told me he never liked books until he found 'The Lightning Thief', the parent who thanked me for turning her daughter into a reader, the teacher who said I turned her class around because they bonded over reading 'Percy Jackson' every day. That's what it's all about for me.
