It’s not just Harry Potter that has kids crazed, begging their parents for preorders, and hoping to stay up to go to book release parties. This Twilight series has kids (girls?) going nuts, too.
I just preordered Breaking Dawn, and we might go to the midnight party at River Lights (Second Edition) to get our copy. It’s crazy, but in a way it’s crazy NOT to encourage enthusiasm for reading. When our eldest was born in 1995, who would have thought that part of her social life would have included parties for books? And that the hottest thing to get isn’t new sneakers, or jeans, but a new book?
Not too bad, if you ask me.
