    Jax...I am in the processes of trying to get ahold of the twilight books. I saw the movie first...which is a BIG no no for me...I normally don't do that, but I had to watch the movie first to make sure it was okay for my daughter to watch it. After seeing the first movie, I changed my Facebook status to: "Anybody have the Twilight books I can borrow" HaHa. My cousin is going to loan them to me...just a matter of when can I get over to her house to get them. I SO want to read them...I don't want to have to wait for the movies to come out to see what happens next. This Twilight craze came so fast.....it just HIT me.

I shot her an email back right before lunch and told her I was here but would be out at lunch and she could just leave the book on my desk. I get back to my desk and see the book.......it is covered with stains all over it and pages folded down. Is it so hard to ask that you return something in the same condition that it was in when it was loaned!?! This just bursts my bubble!
      Someone did this to me with my Memoirs of a Geisha book...I had to turn away so she wouldn't see the tears in my eyes, I was so upset. I may be a bit of a freak, but my books are like my babies, it actually causes me physical pain to see a creased spine or a bent page. I was on the bus once and saw a woman with her copy of Outlander bent all the way backwards and I almost had a panic attack.

      Like I said, I may be a freak, but it's still uncalled for. It's someone else's property.

        if you like anne rice.. have you checked out the Twilight series yet? .. i really didnt think id like them.. but i Loved them!! ... Bachatabride, if your not too into erotic.. this series is a little bit softer.. doesnt get very 'informative' til the last book! :)
        She does the Twilight Series!!?? I had no idea!!! All I've heard for the last while is Twilight & I never new what it was all about! I have a hard time doing something that is mainstream or really popular! (just a little quirk I have I guess!!) But maybe I'll have to do it this time since it is Anne Rice!!
        Thanks!!

          OMG!!! I read the Sleeping Beauty trilogy in high school also! Boy was I shocked out of my mind! I led a very sheltered childhood so I was completely taken by surprise when I read those, LOL! They are definitely a good read though. I have them upstairs...Hmmmm...I might just have to find them to take another read. It's been years!

            Amanda....Anne Rice didn't do the Twilight series. I think Jax suggested them since you liked the Vampire books Anne Rice did. Twilight is all about vampires!

                  This is totally my pet peeve. I have alot of books and they are all in very good condition because I keep them that way. I rarely will lend out a book unless I know the person will be just as anal about them as I am. Grrrr

                      Oh I hate it when people do that lol I leant my friend a book and her hubby took into the bath with him and dropped it! I never did get it back.

                      I've leant other books to a good friend and she's given them to her bloody dad! I mean she has part of my Harry Potter set ffs!! lol
