Twilight

I went to the bookstore at midnight
with Caitlin
to get her Twilight book.
It was a mob scene!
At least 200   teens
waiting for a book
when the magic moment came
the harried employee held up the first copy
they screamed like it was a rock star
some of them were reading on the way out of the store
some of them clutched their copy to their chest and cried
I love to see kids so excited about reading
There is hope!
Stephanie Meyers tells the story at an exhausting pace and can stretch PG rated sexual tension till your hormones ache
but it is all about love
romance
waiting
anticipation....

    Twilight Book? Is this something local? I haven't heard of it. Becki is a reader, but she prefers poetry.

P.S.: It is incredible to see kids read on their own.
