Reading on Labor Day Weekend

Okay, I am about the last person that reads books about vampires. However, the word of mouth on this book is extremely good. Technically, it is a book marketed towards teenage girls, but I say once a teenage girl......always a teenage girl somewhere inside! The premise of the book is that Bella, a 17-year-old girl, returns to the town where she was born, Forks, Washington, (where I have been!) to attend high school. There she meets Edward who is so totally cool and fabulous, except for one thing. He is a vampire. And away we go..........Thanks to Marilyn who talked about this series on her blog and to my niece who also told me about this book. This is first of three in a series, and I hear a final book will be coming out next Fall. Here is a list of people who I know who should go get this book right now:

1. Noreen.
2. Trish.
3. Kim.
4. Sharon.
5. Kathy.
6. P. Stew.
7. Heather.

Also, I have been having fun putting some of my books on Shelfari. It is a website where you can post books on your shelves and others can then see what you have in your library. There is a feature where you can also have friends on this site and see what is on their shelves. I think all my reading buddies who are not on there yet should do so!

It does sound like a keeper..now if I can keep my behind out of the craft room long enough to read something besides artsy magazines I would be on the right track! Great little post to come home to!

You were smart to leave my name off that list. :<) I find vampires pretty scary and would never read a book or watch a movie on them. I'll go check out your book shelves. What a great idea!

Nan, in case you check back.....it is not scary! I hate scary books. It is more like an old-fashioned gothic romance set in present day!!!!!

I'm with you on this one, girlfriend. I'm now on the third book in the series, Eclipse. I am almost ashamed to admit that I'm so hooked on a series for teenage girls ... but I can't help myself.

I was a teenager...in love as a teenager....married my teenage/high school sweetie....and have 2 teenagers I live with....hmmmm, I think I might just like it !!!

Nan sent me this direction to see that you are reading some of my favorite books. Enjoy, enjoy and who cares if we are teenagers (I'm so very not anymore). I work in a library and my co-worker and I that love this author have decided that we need to keep up with what the teens are reading so we can point them to great books.

Love your blog by the way!

I love your new "picture" of you! I can readily tell what it is, and it truly says much about you as well. I ordered the book from the scholastic book club at work! Will share those details later.
