The End is Here...11.16.12!

Woo Hoo or Boo Hoo?!?

Speaking of love triangles, Courtney, did you know that Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is premiering tomorrow, November 16th?!? Of course you did because you are one of the rabid fans who are probably gathering their sleeping bags and coolers in preparation for the midnight premier camp out. :) One of my adorable teen regulars tried to coax me into taking him and his group of friends to the midnight premier but, alas, I will be sound asleep while the rest of you bask in the glow of Edward's glitter.

Whether you're sad that the Twilight series movies are about to be over or happy to no longer have to hear about Team Edward vs. Team Jacob, you probably have a strong feeling one way or another about Twilight. I know the teens certainly do. So when the opportunity came up to receive some amazing giveaways from 42West, the PR firm for the company producing the film, I had to jump on it.  I received posters, keychains, pens, bracelets, temporary tattoos, and to bump up my attendance, I decided to give everything away at my regularly scheduled teen craft program, Crafternoon. What a hit! Teens were lined up waiting nearly 30 minutes before the program even started. No matter what your feelings are for the series or the movies, you have to love that they're getting teens into the library and into books!

Just a few of my happy, satisfied teens!

I can't believe it's been at least 7 years since I first got a copy of Twilight and amused my coworkers with a lunchtime read aloud from the meadow scene. Then I got sucked in and had to read the rest. I still can't believe that it became such a huge cultural juggernaut.

When I visited the Pacific Northwest I actually took a picture outside of Forks. Mind you this was before the book became such a huge phenomenon.

This will probably be only one of two times that I was ahead of a curve like this -- the other being Buffy the Vampire Slayer... so I suppose I should be proud...?
