    Yeah its fantastic. It's called The 100 Classic Book Collection. It's just got so much so that's why I had to have it! You should google it, you'll find a list of everything that's on it. And it's not expensive (provided you already have a DS, otherwise, well it might be with console included LOL) Was only about 15 pound, give or take. I'd be lucky to buy 3 decent books for that :D

    hahahaha I did the same :D My mum owns a game store, she got a signed DS by the guy who did the voice of Super Mario, and since my other DS went out of commission, I thought thanks very much I'll just borrow that indefinitely :D lol Like she's ever going to use it, she buys these things and they go untouched for years lol Same with the PSP actually lol

    You should be able to, if not then online for sure. But yeah I love it, though I was cheesed off cause it has The Count of Monte Cristo on it, which I had just bought a few months before and it's a HUGE book lol Not a problem for some but since Anakin and I travel back and forth between Belgium and Scotland every few months, it was an issue getting it in my luggage when we were going home LOL

    When were the Twilight books written actually? I'm guessing in the last 10-15 years considering the setting but I'm just surprised they have become so popular so quickly.

    I love twilight, a beautiful time of the day. A pity someone named a silly series of books after it. Now I sit in the corner and cry at dusk.

    Well Anakin and I just watched the film and in general I can say I liked it, though I felt some points were overdone. It's the kind of film I would have been in love with when I was 15, which I kind of thought would be the case. Was not as bad as people claimed but not as wonderful as others did. So I'm somewhere in the middle I guess :) Does it require two further movies? Not sure, depends on the stories.

    I think the best part of the movie was that they made it go along with the book. The same lady that directed Twilight isn't directing New moon. I've also heard that there is different director for Eclipse. On top of that Dakota Fanning got the role of one of the bad vampires in New moon. not sure how thrilled I am about that. The person she's supposed to be playing isn't supposed to be cute. I'm pretty disappointed that they picked a cute little girl.

    I tried to read one. They are appalling badly written. I gave up. If you want literate vampires and romance, read Chelsea Quinn Yarbro.

    I can't speak for the book, but as I was saying to Anakin while I was watching it, it seems like a kinda outsider girl dream come true. What Transformers was to geek boys, ie) transformers has an unpopular geek boy suddenly becoming one of the most important people on the planet, getting to battle with extraterrestrial robots, oh and get the babe. So this, outsider, strange girl, doesn't quite fit in etc, has this handsome young vampire fall in love with her. I get where the appeal is, and I know that I'd probably have really dug it 10 years ago lol But I still question where the hype came from about it.

    I guess mostly of girls that age... At least that would make sense... But I can't say cause I don't know if the book is really a lot more interesting than the movie or just 'better' if you know what I mean...

    books are always more interesting than movies.
    Because in the book the describing is beautiful..has more sentences that gives you a free way to fantasy the place that the author is describing it..
    i like books more.

    but in this case i dont like twilight.. ive read so many interesting fantasy books..and this one gets me bored..maybe its my taste..but i dont like it..
    and i dont care about some members here that they say : i hate people that hate twilight..
    this kind of people for me are jerks
    cuz people are different..everyone has his/her own taste..
