a funny story
Hey guys. I decided to take a break from the updates and tell ya'll a story...
Right. So one of my closest friend went to see the twilight movie last week, then borrowed the whole book series from me. Now, that friend of mine is so addicted to the series. But that's not what my story is about. But it reminded me of it...
So, my friend now wants to have his own copy of the series. So, I went all over town to help to look for them. As ya'll know, anything twilight related is now mostly sold out.
Now, on to my story. So, end of last year (or earlier this year, I'm not sure...), I went to a newly-opened bookshop in town. I was browsing through the shelves when I saw this book with an apple on the cover. It was twilight. I wanted to buy it but didn't have enough cash. SO I went back the following day, but can't find it. The bookshop people were re-arranging the books. So I went to ask them. I can't remember much the conversation, but this is vaguely it.
Me: Hi, do you have 'Twilight'?
Bookshop person: By Stephenie Meyer? Sorry, sold out.
Me: Are you ordering more?
Bookshop person: I'm not so sure. (refers to another store person) The books have been banned.
Bookshop person: Yes. They said that it has these negative elements, so they banned it.
Me: Then what about that 1 copy I saw yesterday?
Bookshop person: Well, that was our last one.
Me: OK, then. Thank you.
So I went out, empty-handed, thinking 'Why the h*ll would they ban that book? No negative element whatsoever..'.
So, I went to check out another bookshop near my house. Surprise, surprise. I found both twilight and new moon there. Banned? Hah!
And so, that was the point of my life when I was converted into a Twilighter, and there was no looking back.
Well, that's my story on how I found twilight.
Tell me yours. How did you find out about the twilight novel?
