Sorry I haven't been here earlier. When I got my pre-ordered copy of the Guide, there was a error in it from the printer. Some of the pages were torn in half, folded and stuck in the binding. So I had to send it back and recieved another copy on Thursday
. Then it took me three days to read it and I still haven't finished (so much info, so little time). But I love it and I'm ready for some discussion. I'm hopping over to the Alice thread after this:

But in that way Edward was really similar to Romeo. You'd think he would have made sure Bella was dead too. But no, he had to believe Rosalie and Jacob of all people (not that I have anything against Rosalie or Jacob but they were not the most supportive of the relationship at the time) and he jumped to the conclusion that Bella actually died from the fall. What amount of time or trouble would it have cost him to go back to Forks and at least put some flowers on her grave or something? Or get the info directly from the source, Alice? He had time to pull of the whole theatrics of revealing himself under the clock tower at noon. (sorry about that, end of rant)has Alice read the classics much?
I think she picked them up one time or another. Some good character driven books to better understand the human mind, since she can't remember human life. I don't know if she would be as interested in them as Bella, but she must have read them at least once right.

Now I can see that too, especially the detective novels.
Maybe some chick lits too, like the Shopaholic series. Maybe she learned something from that, although the Cullens will probably never have problems with money.

That's a pretty good question too. What did Alice do when she was waiting around for Jasper? You think she met some other vampires or tried to interact with humans? I don't think she is capable of hiding away somewhere and do nothing.
