10 days and counting!

it's finally close enough to start an official countdown and i am annoyingly excited! i did nothing but read these books for about two weeks this summer and now, the movie is finally almost here. I'm seeing it with some girls from my alum group on sunday--figuring the mormon crowd will not be out in full force that day to catch the movie.
also, i'd heard rumors (from connor's 18 y.o. teacher) that Stephenie Meyer was writing another version of Twilight from Edward's perspective-same story, totally different POV. I guess the draft of the manuscript got leaked online somehow (sucks for her) and so Meyer just decided to post the rough cut online-or atleast the first 250+ pages of the book. Click here for the draft of Midnight Sun. I'm really loving it-didn't think I would since I loved the original so much, but i was wrong!
i really heart edward. these books turn me into a 15 year old girl and i'm ok with that. i honestly don't know a single person who read these (biased or otherwise) and didn't love the books. and why are people purposefully trying not to enjoy these books? I didn't do the whole Harry Potter thing, so i'm new to the book phenominon that totally obsesses over a title. but fortunately i'm usually about 6 months behind trends so when my bookclub suggested it, I had no notion of what I was about to read.
