Thanks debbie-dub, as always, for getting most of this together!
The School Library Journal has an article on Twilight that addresses the educational benefits of the book series, the literary influences and how Twilight could be included in a class syllabus. (Where do I sign up for that class?!) Read it here.
She Knows asks “How much do you think you know about Twilight?” They have a list of trivia questions, by book, with the answers on page 2. Bring the trivia questions to your Breaking Dawn party and try to stump your friends. Get the trivia here.
The Peninsula Daily News has an article that is sure to make you hungry. Bella Burgers, Ed’s Bread, and Swan Salad are a few of the culinary treats being offered at Forks and Port Angeles, WA, eateries these days. For a list of Twilight inspired menus and fare, eat it up here. They also have a detailed list of Forks and Port Angeles are Breaking Dawn release parties here.
We thought we got this blogged already, but even if we did, it’s worth a second look… Normal Mormon Husbands Breaking Dawn spoofs can be really funny! We read this one here first, but there is more to discover over there! Thanks Dayrey79 for reminding us about Normal Mormon Husband!
And now, some very bad news. Breaking Dawn’s Kindle release date has been pushed back a full day- to August 3rd. For Kindle users (even Stephenie’s a user- she recently mentioned using her Kindle in People magazine’s July 25th issue- see blog post here), it’s an outrage! Here’s a quote from TwilightMOM kempette expressing her concerns:
“Much to my dismay the release for BD on amazon’s Kindle (e-book) has been pushed back a full 24 hours from the main release of the book- until Midnight on Aug THIRD! If I had the guts I’d PM Elizabeth to ask her what the deal is, but since it’s a publisher decision I’m sure she can’t help. I’ve sent an email to Little Brown, asking them to reconsider & I encourage everyone else who reads Steph’s books on Kindle to do the same. After all, Steph is a Kindle reader too!!!! My impression is that this is all a ploy to get more of us to buy more “tree books” in our impatience instead of holding out for our beloved Kindle copies. anyway, a link to the original blog posting is at:
The customer service email link for Little Brown/Hachette is:
Have fun at those release parties!”
Twilightgeek sent us this note and we asked if we could share it with you all:
I can’t believe that Rachelle mentioned my buttons on the MTV chat thing!! And in one of the videos, Catherine is wearing the button she picked from me!! I am just so tickled pink and I am bouncing off the ceiling!! I just wanted to share, because, of course, they couldn’t name the “girl” who gave them the buttons! But it was me!! Hee-hee-hee!!!! Can you tell I’m a bit psyched?!
Isn’t she cute? Both Rachelle AND our own Twilightgeek. We’re all tickled pink and a little bit psyched for you, too!
The Kansas City Star published an article here titled “Fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga plan to stay up and wait for the Dawn.” Yep, we sure are! Thanks to TM BeautifulDisaster for that bit of news.
