Let's talk Twilight.
These books have caused quite a commotion! Almost as much as the Harry Potter books, and that's fairly impressive, especially in our "glued to the screen" society.
I have not read them.
They're really not even on my list.
I know a fair amount about them. I've heard summaries and reviews from various sources. And they are just not my style. And they're long enough, that that's a fair bit of time to devote to something that I'm not all that interested in. (The clip I saw from the movie did not help. Wow that was bad acting.)
And yet people are determined to convince me to read them. Which I find interesting.
I mean, in some ways that's what I do here, right? Try to convince people to read books I enjoyed. But I'd like to think I'm not putting undo pressure on anyone.
So what is it about these books that's causing reader riots? I don't know. I really honestly don't. From everything I've heard about these books, I just can't see why they're such a sensation.
It's just weird.
So-- what do you think? Come on, I know you have an opinion. This is one of those subjects where EVERYONE does!
I opened the can of worms-- go ahead and give it to me.
