So this is why I DONT read


Ok... So my niece and her friends starting reading this a year or so ago...maybe even longer...I don't know I didn't pay much attention. Then my mom read the series... Whatever my mom reads a ton of books... I don't even try to keep up. And then there is my girlfriend, Catherine, who was when starting the first should we say addicted to them... Having to read them so much in fact that her home and sweet, adorable, amazing children had to suffer until she had finished the series... Which leads me to say that her friend whom shall go unnamed... came to her aid in feeding the addiction by lending her the books, watching her children and maybe wiping down a counter or two of her home in order for her to finish these books... In fact she listed a site on her post that amazed me... is a site for addicted moms.. I mean really... it is just a book! http://twilightmoms.com/
So I guess now is time for my confession should we say. When my mom was out here 2 weeks ago she had picked up this book for me at the airport. I said thanks and put it on my nightstand for me to read NEVER! I guess addictions need to start somewhere. RIGHT?!?!? Mine started 2 nights ago. I was tired but not so tired to fall asleep. The usual pile of magazines were not on my table... but THAT BOOK was... I cracked it open and started to read. By the end of the first chapter I was pretty intrigued... But I WAS NOT going to commit to it! Like any addiction there are times when the addiction take total power! That is was happened last night. I was tired when I got in bed but I thought "I'll just read a chapter..." 2 hours later I was still reading. My eyes were dry and tired but I kept on... Finally my body took control of the addiction and I fell fast asleep dreaming of vampires... Noah woke at his usually 6:45am. After feeding him I just had to get back to THAT BOOK... Here I am knowing that I have chores and kids yet ALL I want to do is read THAT BOOK. Yet, I am wasting precious reading time blogging.... The girls are happily playing with Noah and the boys are on the wii... I am going to sneak up to my room and try to read a chapter...
Note to Catherine: Please don't be angry that I have ratted you out to all my "PEEPS" I too am addicted to this book.... Let's hope that me sharing my story will bring others to the knowledge of their own addiction of reading...

OK - I have heard about this book, now I am going to have to read it. Pass it on when you are done!

I too have had the addiction with the Twilight series! I was trying to read them and take finals at the same time. It was a bad combination! I think that the 4th one is coming out in a couple of months.

Catherine won't be angry that you ratted her out...she's a open professed lover of the series as well as half of our ward! I know I did when I read them last year. I think you'll find that most of the women in our ward have all neglected their children for these books. I know I did. But, since my girls loved them too, they got me back by ignoring us for a few days while they read them too. To anyone...I have the series...a couple of each copy if you would like to borrow them!

I'm with Melissa that everyone is talking about these. I have trouble getting into books, so I'm always looking for a really good book. If I can't get addicted to it then I usually won't read it. Weird- I know. Cheryl-- I would really love to borrow, so I will be calling you!! I have to see what all the hype is about!

All I have to say is, yes I loved the twilight series, and I'm not ashamed of it!!! And I confess, I'm not the only one who enjoyed it while I read the books. (it did "spice things up" for a while over here) That's all I'll say about that.
