Bibliophile on Parade

Since I was a kids books have been the center of my life. The first book I ever really wanted to own was a copy of Dracula. My mother said no (I was eight). Since then I collected over 1700 books and with the e-reader I have downloaded over 300 more. I own 32 different copies of Dracula, 16 copies of Jane Eyre, and 7 copies of Shadows of the Wind. Even though I own an e-reader, it will diminish my desire to own and collect books. The smell of old is so enticing to me. If Frebreeze ever wanted to make a killing off of me they would create Old Book scent. Pure heaven.

Say What You Want

Twilight - Stephenie Meyer

Okay, I am sure that everyone out there has an opinion on either this book or the movie or the writer.

I am going to say, "I don't care"

I had the distinct advantage of reading this novel before it was even released, and I loved it!!

If you look closely it is a typical tale of teens in love that are torn apart by the rules of society, you know she's human, he's a vampire, how will it ever work?  I know many readers dislike this book because they see Bella as the perpetual damsel in distress and Edward as the knight who berates and saves her.  This is not the story I read.  I saw a couple who struggle to make this impossible relationship work, and they will do anything to protect each other from any harm, especially Bella the so-called damsel.

Take another read, you might see a new story than the one everyone presumes it to be.
