If your Rick Riordan fans who loved Percy Jackson have kept going with the Kane Chronicles (Red Pyramid is out, Throne of Fire is out soon) they may like to get hold of sneak peek of Throne of Fire via Amazon. At time of writing (these things change, so don't get cranky if the freebie is gone!) you can preorder a Kindle e-book edition of "The Throne of Fire Chapter Sneak Peek" for $0 (not $18.99) and it will be delivered on May 3, 2011.
You don't need a Kindle e-reader to read it, you can read Kindle-formatted books via iPhone app, on your PC/Mac etc - the page has links to these.
I called this blog Skerricks because it began as a gathering place for me for the bits and pieces (or skerricks) I wanted to record, remember and use in my work as a teacher librarian. Turns out it's useful for others as well. w00t!

I've been a Teacher Librarian for twentysomething years and a blog is a great way to share the stuff my flypaper mind finds amid the internet jungle. I'm also a year adviser at my school. If you want to reach me, leave a comment.
