Public apology.

When Jeremy had his surgery I needed a book to read, so I called over to Heather (my sis. in law) and the only thing she had for me to borrow was of course, you've already guessed it - Twilight. For those of you who haven't already been offended by my opinion of twilight and it's readers let's just say I said a few unkind statement including the words freaks, vampires, obsessive and loosers, (just to name a few.) Those who mainly got the brunt are Stephanie, Shawni, and Ally. But although I am on the third book already, and I feel like the story is entertaining, I have to admit I feel like my initial assessment was correct. It's not that great of a book. Nothing happens until the end, she just wines and wines for a whole book until one thing happens and then it's over. I do admit once you've started you feel like you have to finish, but that doesn't mean it is a good book. If you want to read a good book I recommend Angels and Demons, way better! Ok so this wasn't a great apology but here it goes. Shawni, Steph, the rest of you, I am sorry for calling your favorite book a freaky stupid vampire book. It's not freaky or stupid. And I'm glad you found something to make you happy for awhile. What bothered me most really, was just that everyone would never stop talking about it. It seems a little overrated. But again sorry for being mean.

angels and demons two thumbs way up...I'm no twilight fan either. I liked the movie though.

I liked Twilight, but agreed that it isn't scholastically awesome. It is just too easy to get sucked into. It was just too mushy for me...I am not a super romantical person.

And about the big girl bed. I totally agree. That is why I never rocked or nursed Anna to sleep when she was little. Just one more bad habit you have to break. I was lucky that she finally caved after a week and started to take a nap again. She was just too exhausted not too. So, just for your future reference with Reese the no napping will hopefully end too if the same thing happens with her. I just didn't know what to expect!

wait until the 4th one, major stupid. she should have stopped after the 3rd. i think they are entertaining but not the best books ever written.
I too agree with you and cassi with angels and demon-super good read

Yes. My mom made the quilt. Sadly enough she made me that quilt when I moved away to college, but I kept it because it was girly enough to pass for a 2 year olds bed spread (sad for me at 18 years if age - LOL). It is a rag quilt. They are a little time consuming (the clipping part that is), but pretty easy.

That was the worst public apology! But to tell you the truth, I was never obsessed with it. And you never offended me. Had I written the book, maybe. I am glad I read them once but the last one was such a let down to me that I would never read them again.

That was a bad apology but it doesn't offend me I still love the books. I didn't like the movie though. Angels and Demons is really good too, any book that Dan Brown writes is good there are a couple more you should read if you already haven't. Plus the movie for Angels and Demons is coming out this spring-can't wait to see it.

I don't accept your apology!! I think I need some good treats to really accept!! Just kidding, I was never obsessed, but I am glad that you came around. I knew you would. I do love the books, but I think I do because they are not hard to read and well lets face it, I am not that intellegent!:) I hope you enjoy them!
