I'm sorry, but I can't talk right now

The library hold queue for "Breaking Dawn" is much shorter than the others, so I'm holding out on that one for now.

I just bought these off of craigslist! Fair enough price, too. I would've haggled her down some, but she was like, 10.

So today I got to do a good deed, start a youngster off on a capitalist career, and mark another check in the reduce-reuse-recycle column by buying these used instead of new! :)

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go enter my hidey-hole and emerge when I'm done with two more books targeted at readers who are are whole person who can drink younger than I am.

Have fun! I don't think I'll be reading these (feminist reasons... I get the feeling I'd be pissed a lot if I did), so I'll go knit instead... after petting the cat.

LOL - I love "whole person who can drink younger". Great line. :D

And once you finish those, I can recommend another set of books aimed at the same age group. I haven't read Twilight et al (yet), but these I loved.

Wait until you get to Breaking Dawn. It is so not a YA book, if you ask me. (Two words: vampire whoopee.)

Okay, but if you go to Oregon to do the Twilight tour, I'm personally flying out there to tackle you and drag you back home.

Hope you are having fun reading them! It really is funny how instantly addictive they are...

You are so damn funny!!

I asked a very serious Medievalist colleague if her voracious-reader 9 year old would be reading Twilight one day. Her answer was that "...I would never expose my daughter to such a masochistic view of love." Whatevs:)

I felt the exact same way. Although I read them more in hiding and shame. They truly are addictive.
