That's such a cute story! My mom works in a junior high, and she has a Twilight poster up in her office.
My mom actually begged me to read Twilight for months. I kept putting it off since it didn't sound like my thing at all. I love to read, but I thought this was a "teen" book, and I didn't even read those when I was a teen.
I finally decided to read it when she got us tickets to go to the midnight showing with her. I finished it literally hours before I saw the movie.
I finished the book in a couple hours, which isn't unusual for me, but Twilight was different. I felt like it was happening to me, and when I was done, I immediately wanted to start over and read it again, which I have never done with a book. I talked about it all day to anyone who would listen, and then talked about it endlessly after that. My poor BF got so tired of hearing me, he made me a blog lol, and that's where I'm at today.
