Breaking Dawn

The obsession reaches new heights...

Stephenie Meyer's new book Breaking Dawn comes out August 2nd. To my immense surprise, while at Costco the other day, I found that the new "Special Edition" copies of Eclipse include a first chapter preview of the new book. So of course I proceeded to spend the next five minutes wandering around Costco with my nose buried in the back of the book, squealing and skipping like a school girl. Ben and Jessie mocked me. About halfway through the chapter, I felt bad that I was ignoring my friends who were shopping with me (or rather, I with them), so I reassured myself that the chapter would be posted online and set the book down.

Well, it wasn't. I rushed home and rushed onto Stephenie's official website, to be met with an announcement that they were waiting for the release of the book to publish the preview online. WHY?! I googled and googled, but they were efficient at upholding their copyright and taking down anyone who tried to share the goodness. So what do you do in a situation like this?

A normal person would resign themselves to wait until the book came out and read the whole thing.

I got up and drove 2 blocks to Barnes & Noble just to finish the chapter.


And it was good.

Yes, my whole in-law family is obsessed with this book coming out. Because I was slightly dis-enchanted by the 3rd book in the Twilight series (too long...I know, it's a sin to say that), I haven't even looked into what this book is about. But it's hilarious you drove to B&N to finish the chapter. That is something that I bet my S-I-L's are all doing, too.

Alright, I just did some research on the darned book...I didn't know it was the 4th book in the Twilight series. Hmmm...that peaks my interest slightly. I'm going to lie and say I probably won't read it, but -- yeah right, I will when I get my hands on one of my SIL's copies. Nerdy.

Hi. Your post made me laugh. I with you on that one. I can't wait for it to come out. I'm waiting anxiously for it too. It must be hard to have read the first chapter and then can't read the rest. Only a few more weeks to go...
