Yes, two of my friends, but sadly I failed to get them crazily obsessed.
Just like me.
haha.
They are like, "Okay that was a great book. I'm over it now. It'sjust a book."
I was like, "Just a book?! What's wrong with you??? HUH!"

I've seen people read it in my school, but I always always feel like some people don't deserve to read Twilight and fall in love with Edward because they won't get the full meaning of Twilight. I don't like the idea that they just read Twilight because everyone else is reading it and they feel like the need to be part of it and go like, " OMG I read Twilight too!!! It was a good(understatement much?) and OMG!! Edward is soooooo hooooottttt!!!" Shessssssh, that pisses the hell out of me so badly. It doesn't always have to be about Edward and his hotness, okay? Sorry, about that. haha. I just had to get that out of my system.

Sorry. :oops:

You kidding? I got wwhat feels like millions of people hooked, and they got others to read it! I'm like a missionary! Almost all the girls from school, my sister, my mum, all my friends, my best friend's friends, all the girls in my old school in Switzerland, mums from friends of mine...Seriously, everone!

But I'm still the most obsessed one, and very proud of it =)

How on earth did you get your boyfriends to read the books?!? I have all but begged my boyfriend to read them and he has pretty much refused.....
It would make me so happy if he read them!

Other than that, my sisters got me to read it and I've gotten one other friend to read them. She is the only one I know who isn't currently reading them!

Yes I did, and after reading it, they were all converted into the fandom. My secret? I gave them as Christmas gifts to all my single & married girlfriends! Even though we all live far away from each other now, we still can have awesome discussions about it whenever we see each other.

I lent my copies to one of my best friends after reading each one. I told her Sunday that I found hard-backs of Twilight and New Moon on Amazon, and when I buy those for myself, I was gonna give her my paperbacks so that I would have a matching set of all hard-backs. lol... she was like, "-o-okaaaaaayy. Wow, you're obsessed, Sarah." I laughed. She enjoys them, but I don't think quite as much as I do.

I let my aunt borrow Twilight last Thursday... she told me yesterday that she just started reading it. I told her to hurry up, because I was having withdrawals! hahahaaaa! She was wanting to know what the big deal was, because I have Twilight stickys, bumper stickers, and Flairs on my Facebook! too funny!

Well, I got my mom to read it.

But then there is my friend, who said when I was reading it that it was a stupid series, then a couple weeks later she asked to borrow it! She actually liked it too. Now every time I see her, and can say, "I told you so!!!"

i got one of my friends to read it. (the others had already read them. they are the ones who converted me.) the stupid thing is, she said she loved twilight, but she isn't going to read the rest of the series. I KNOW, DUMB!!! i keep telling her that if she liked twilight, she would love the rest of the books, but no. she refuses. duh.

Sorry. :oops:


i know what you mean...i've been an obsessed fan (uhm well freak fits better....) from the very begining and now suddenly everyone reads twilight! what makes it even worse is the fact that there are some idiots thinking they know everything about twilight and if you ask them what they think of esmes marriage with charles eveanson (to test them...) and they answer: what? i've read all books two times (two times...sweet, huh?) and that's not in the books! esme is married to carlisle.
"you ever heard of the lex, girl?"
"the what?"
"the twilight lex. the twilight lexicon."
"no. is that a book with everything about twilight in? great, i have to buy that!"
"yeah, but read the acknowledgments of eclipse again before running into the next bookstore."

I'm trying to get one of my friends to read Twilight. I left it at her house. Eventually, her Edward curisity will get the better of her. She'll be hooked in no time.
I'm trying to convince my other friend to read Breaking Dawn since she hasn't yet. Humph.
My aunt read Twilight and is not halfway through New Moon. Last time I checked, Jacob was about to bend the rules. ;)
I would have done more, but I'm putting all of my persuasive efforts into Person #1. :lol:
