OMG, i thought was bad with having read them all 3 times since January. and thats with reading other books. WOW is all i have to say to anyone who's read it more than me. i know it only takes me about 3 weeks or so to read them all (if you're not doing much else), but WOW, thats all i can say hehe.
Clarity of mind means clarity of passion, too; this is why a great and clear mind loves ardently and sees distinctly what it loves.

I first read Twilight at the end of June, then got the other two books. Generally, when I started a book for the first time, I would camp out on the couch in the living room and read till close to dawn until I finished. It was hard to wait for Breaking Dawn, and I kept reading all the other books over and over. I really am wondering when I will stop reading them all the time. Certainly, not even close. Like others in this post, I am happy to find I am not just a freak. Sometimes I have given Twilight to a friend, then, when I was going to see her again, I wonder, did she fall in love with Edward too?

Twilight- 6, 7, or 8 times
New Moon- 5, 6, or 7 times
Eclipse- 4 or 5 times
Breaking Dawn- 1[soon to be 2]

Sorry for the ranges, but I'm not good with keeping count because the numbers start to blurr together after a while.

It's the term Little Brown applied to it about a year or so ago.

Saga has a couple of meanings in today's pop culture and the Twilight series fits perfectly well within the description. It is a fantasy fiction, a fairy tale and with the last book it also fits the "dictionary" description which is " a form of the novel in which the members or generations of a family or social group are chronicled in a long and leisurely narrative."

Well,
Twilight-12
New Moon-9
Eclipse-6
Breaking Dawn-1(I've only read it once because its new,well...newer!)

But over all New Moon is my favorite I don't know why I just think it was the best. :D

Twilight - 5
New Moon - 3 (the first two times I had to find Edward in the book ... I skipped, a lot.)
Eclipse - 4
Breaking Dawn - 2

----
The Host - 2

I have read Twilight the most because I loved how they fell in love. I enjoy reading the "glory of a first love."
