I started Twilight a little late in the day you might say, considering that everyone else has either read all the books, at least the next book, and seen both movies.
Better late than never , I always say.
While Twilight is not a literary genius of a book, it is a very easy to read, fast moving book.
The rest of this blog is for people who have already read the book.
I have to admit, the book kept me on the edge of my seat, mainly because I didn't trust the majority of what the author was telling me.
Would Edward break down, and decide that Bella made a quick n easy snack?
And when Edward took Bella to meet his family, I kept wondering if the family was going to give up their 'vegetarian' ways and have Bella for dinner?
When Alice and Emmet escaped with Bella to Phoenix, I kept wondering if Bella would survive the trip, and then wondering if she would survive staying in a hotel room with them?
I still don't trust Rosalie, and expect her to be in conflict with Bella in the next book or the third book at the very latest. Will she be? I don't know anything about the books that follow, so I don't know.
I'd be interested to hear about your reading experience and thoughts on Twilight.

Well, it's happened, I'm joining the crowd, and starting to read the best seller Twilight. I'm on page 66, and that is miraculous because every time I pick up the book, someone gets the urge to call me and talk for a minute or so.
I'm puzzled by the way Edward is reacting toward Bella, first with complete hate and loathing, then a week later, totally charming. I know ahead of time that in the Twilight books there are vampires, but the description of Edward with his fair, fair skin and slight purple circles under his eyes gave me the hint that Edward, and all the Cullen clan are the Vampires, from Alaska no less!! At least it's not the overly cliched Transylvania.
One question, when did Vampires acquire the talents of super-sonic speed? In all the old Bella Lugosi films, vampires walked at human speeds, but could turn into bats. I wonder if Edward can turn into a bat?

Reporting in for duty!

Wow, some blog! Are you underwhelmed? I know I am. This will be my third blog entry for the whole year of 2009. Whoopee. Notice the lack of exclamation points?
I guess in my own defense, I am still in recovery. Since February, I have been operated on, had chemo, had radiation, lost a significant amount of hair, been scared to death and/or tearful. I've lost feeling in the end joint of my fingers, and of my toes. I've certainly had plenty to blog about, but haven't.
My family isn't even celebrating Thanksgiving today, we celebrated it last Sunday, the day that all of my immediate family could get together and share time and a meal together. It was precious.
Today, I've had time to be introspective. I've always been thankful for my family, but this year I am more so. I'm thankful for the extra time I have been granted to be with my family, to talk to them, to hug them, to just be together - with or without us talking. I've accepted that I might never have the time to accomplish all my goals, even the ones I've had since I was a teenager. That what I might be remembered for, in the abstract, is that I was important in the lives of my children. That my accomplishment will live on in the lives of the children in my children's lives.
