My two cents…
…in regards to the flame war over at slashfilm.com:
I thought the article was fascinating (I fear math; consequently statistics impress me enormously). It was so cool to hear that Taylor Lautner was ranking higher in imdb interest than ANY OTHER ACTOR IN THE WORLD. Amazing. And also how popular all the other Twilight actors have been in recent search history.
There’s really no need to get upset just because the author is new to Twilight. Everyone was a newbie once, right? And if other posters want to trash the book, that’s their right. Thanks for the passionate defense, but I’m not under any illusions that I’m the reincarnation of Jane Austen. I have fun writing my books, plenty of people have fun reading my books, and that’s more than enough for me. Let’s make love, not war
The point is statistics, my friends! Numbers! (Don’t stare at them too long, though, or math-related thoughts might invade your head.)
