Started with the first book the other day, quite interesting start I have to say.

Got distracted by another book though, so I need to get moving and hurry so I can continue reading this one

I've only seen the film.
It was good, though apparently they made a lot of mythological mistakes there.

I only looked into the first book once and it started with telling me that Percy Jackson is 13. That threw me a little.

Okay, maybe I'll give the books a try too sometimes.

It's four books, right?
Are there supposed to be more or is the series complete?

Okay, five then. But is it complete?

And I know that there's only one movie. Even if I hadn't seen it, I'd know that.

Are there any plans to make movies of the other 4 books as well

I'm working my way to the 1st book at the moment and I think my knowledge of greek mythology needs a refresher
