Can't Blog... Reading...


as some of you may know, I am a tiny bit... shall we say... obsessive when I read - so there will be no laundry done or food prepared on Saturday because Stephenie Meyer's new book is being released...  it is my guilty pleasure and I'm not going to hide it anymore.  For crying out loud, Mitt Romney will be reading it too!  Just in case you aren't DYING to read it, here are a few of the quotes coming in the new book:
(Oh S - you didn't want to see these...  yeah, just ignore my blog today!)

"I've seen vampire venom work miracles, but there are conditions that even venom cannot overcome"  (Carlisle)  What's with this one... who's in a "condition", and is it what we (I) expect?

"Over my pile of ashes"  (Rosalie)  That one just cracked me up... doesn't reveal much, but it was too funny to leave out.

"Ah, Edward.  I've missed you." (Tanya)  No way... I don't much like this girl (despite her nearly cool name) so I'm not looking forward to her being in the story.

"You're awfully small to be so hugely irritating."  (Edward) ...I think I've actually heard this one before... more than once in my life :)

Okay, there are lots more posted at stepheniemeyer.com if you need more reasons to join me in NOT getting any real work done Saturday!  
"saturday is a special day, it's the day we get ready for... oh, whoops...  I guess I'll be getting ready Friday instead!"

UPDATE:  Okay, bought the book at 10:30 this morning and just finished...  and for those of you who haven't finished I will keep my opinion to myself for now... I just have to say one thing...  Renesmee?  really...

Someone a bit excited? Are you going to be able to sleep tonight or tomorrow night? I don't believe that about Mitt though. But you don't need Mitt to justify your obsession. We have to have our little things to get excited about to make life enjoyable.

I still haven't got past book one since book 2 is on a long waiting list at the library. This was about 5 months ago. So I will just keep on patiently waiting for someone to lend me their copies and then I can contribute to the craze.
I'm all for Bella turning into a vamp, btw. Anything for eternal love in fiction land!

Tonya I have never seen you so excited about a book except for maybe harry potter. I just finished readying Eclipse so now I am ready for the 4th and needless to say you will finish it in a day as for me it will take a week or two and you will be dying to talk with me about it...lol

I seem to be missing out on another mormon culture treat. I better read the first books since I received one them for my birthday. Thanks!
