"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Are you hooked?


I'm a little behind. I just started reading the Twilight series. I finished Twilight in 2 1/2 days and started the New Moon last night. I'm having a hard time getting in to this one and it's starting off slow. I'm so sad that Edward is gone. My friend Jennifer has read the series 3 times and says the book will get better and to just keep going. If you haven't read these yet, Do it. I'm not a reader but did read a 500 or so page book in a little over 2 days. Trust me.... You will get hooked!

It is such a good series. Yes, the second book isn't that great but it gets better once Edward comes back into the picture. The 4th book is out in August.

I'm so glad that you started reading them. It's a good time to get started because you won't have to wait forever for the 4th book to come out like the rest of us!

Ya i got kinda bored until a little over half way through, but keep going! You will be even more hooked when you're done :)

Keep reading. It is not as intense as the first, but watch out. I haven't read the third yet (starting tonight) and I have the fourth one reserved which comes out on Saturday!!!! Happy reading! Also go to the website she has on her book and read Edward's version of the story. I think it is titled Midnight Sun. It so makes you want that version to come out tomorrow!

Sarah I started reading them in April And the second book dragged forever. It's not the same without Edward. I loved the series and also read The Host which I liked. Enjoy. I told my aunt Dorian to read them and she liked them
