i took my 15 yo daughter and 2 of her friends tonight to Borders for the midnight release of the 4th in the series - Breaking Dawn.  It was crazy, full of lots of screaming girls!  This is the 4th book from the Twilight series.  If anyone hasn't heard about this series I would  be surprised.  Teen girls are crazy about these and the whole series has become a huge obsession (ala Harry Potter) with teen girls around the country! 

Did anyone else go to one of these tonite?

I didn't attend a release (I'm a bit too old to abandon my sleeping children to go party :-) But, boy did I want to!! I am simply addicted to this series and can't wait to get ahold of this final installment. Good for you taking you daughter to the release, I LOVE the fact that a BOOK can cause excitement like that in our teens as opposed to the usual rock star or actor! :-) Hope you read them as well, even us moms can appreciate Stepehenie's work.

i've only read the first one - maybe I should read the next ones :).  I did read her new adult book The Host and really liked it.  I agree - it was wonderful seeing preteen and teenage  girls sooooo excited about a book!

I didn't go but I happened to be at B&N around 5pm & there was already a line for the midnight release!!!  I couldn't believe how many people were sitting in the 90+ degree weather for the book!!!!
