So I've joined in. I don't consider myself a bandwagon jumper, a sheep, a follower (aside from the blog reading sense and themed posts). But alas. I've jumped on. a tad later then the rest of the sheep. I think my wagon had a broken wheel and was a littler slower then the rest of the bandwagons. But it pulled up in front of my house yesterday and I with one good leap I was on.
What could I be talking about? Ahhh. It is with almost great regret to admit. I'm reading TWILIGHT. Yes dear friends I have succumb to the excitement that is Twilight. I usually don't read books that get this much hype. Maybe some of you remember I read The Road, and HATED it. with uppercase EVERYTHING. when i read a book that comes highly recommended by my peers, strangers, Oprah, that I don't like it leaves me wondering what's wrong with me. Why didn't I like it. So i decided LONG ago I would NOT be reading Twilight. I had no interest at all. I'm not into all the hoopla that was surrounding it. If I missed out....well then I missed out , I thought.
But yesterday before Preggers shower (which was GREAT), I gave in. Jules boyfriend Number 1 Steeler Fan was leaving for his big day out of the house (since he wasn't thrilled about the shower) and i was making small talk. He told me he planned to grab some lunch finish his book and hit a movie. The book. The 3rd one in the Twilight series. I asked if he was enjoying the books, which he was, who reads 3 jumbo sized books if they aren't enjoying it....duh McMean and I told him my theory about not liking books that are considered so "great". He told me I should give it a go and that I could "always put it down if i didn't like it". Huh. Go figure. I seldom "put a book down" even if i hate it I feel obligated to see it through. He gave em the book and I stuck it in my bag. When i got home I figured oh why not.
OH WHY NOT? Because these people are right. I'm freaking hooked. 100+ pages into it and I'm sitting at work thinking about my next fix. Dear God. I had to literally say "Enough Amy get ready for work" today. I woke up starting reading it took a shower, read some more. i was going to bring it to work "just in case I had a minute or two". WTF. Now I want to finish it to see what happens. thank goodness Number 1 Steeler Fan said I can borrow all his books if i liked them.
