I've Been Bitten
Metaphorically speaking of course.
I've finally gotten caught up in the madness that is Twilight, a little book series by Stephanie Meyer, for those of you further behind then me.
On a whim yesterday I picked up the first book at Target, I sat down to read it, finding a book to be a better alternative then my current iPhone obsession. I noticed every few minutes when I would look down I was 30 or so pages further then the last time. Was I really plowing through this book so fast? I'm a quick reader...but really?
It reached a point where I wouldn't get off the bed, and if I absolutely had to, I walked through the house, nose in book. 3.5 hours into reading and over half the book done I was quite irritated to have to stop due the constant phone ringing and obvious need for food, I am after all pregnant..
After a short break, I went back to my post in my bed and finished off the book. 6 hours it took total. When it was done, at about 10pm I looked at the clock contemplating. Alex must have seen the look on my face as asked "You can't be serious?" - he knew I was trying to figure out if I should go to Wal-Mart for book 2 then, or in the morning. I decided to wait.
When morning came, I ran to Wal-Mart, nearly running people over. When I finally cornered into the book section I was horrified to see they only had book 3. What was I going to do with that!? I needed book two! (though I did buy book 3, I mean I'll need it eventually!) I scrambled to my car and across the road to Target, literally ran down the isle to the book section and about fainted from relief when I realized that all 4 books were neatly stacked on a shelf. A woman looked at me as if I had lobsters crawling out of my ears, aparently she hasn't started the books yet.
I tossed the hard cover version of New Moon into my cart and headed for food...if I was going to read all day I needed it, and things that weren't going to take a lot of time to make....i.e - not so healthy. I grabbed OJ, dough nuts, fruit, shells and cheese and a coke. I needed the caffeine, I barely looked at my coffee this morning when I rant out the door straight from bed, last thing I needed was caffeine headache getting in the way of my precious books and I!
So now I'm off - to start book two, sitting here typing is bugging the crap out of me knowing it's sitting upstairs waiting....I'm off to Forks.
