I found this interview over at The Lex and just had to share it all with you.
ESPN interviewed Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird and asked her about her reading selection. Of course Twilight came up! (which is should in all reading conversations )
So what have you read recently?
I read “Twilight” when I was overseas. I actually liked it. I didn’t expect to, because I generally don’t like fantasy like that because it’s far-fetched but I liked it. It’s pretty good.
My niece loves it. And there is a whole group of women aged 30-50 called Twi-Moms. A friend of ours saw it seven times in the theater. She couldn’t get enough of it.
I read the book and I thought it was amazing. So you read a book and you have this whole mental image of what people look like and the place they are and then I watched the movie, and I know women go gaga over Edward but I could have picked 10 better Edwards.
I was sitting in the theater and there was this huge moan from these middle-aged women when they first see him on the screen. I just don’t get it.
I have to say that I fell asleep the first time I watched the movie because I was a little jet-lagged. But then I finished it later on and it got better, but … I’m reading the second book now because I really love the books. Reading them is much better.
