But anyway, on the weekend we went to the library and as I walked past the one display on the way to the children's side to look after the kids while Terence searched for books for himself, my eye caught a copy of a Twilight book, sitting right there screaming out at me. I walked past thinking that I don't particularly cared for it, but then stopped thinking "hmmm, it is such a popular book and there it is sitting on the display stand begging to be read, I may as well borrow it to see what all the fuss is about", so I took it. When I wanted to check it out, it wouldn't let me. Went to the librarian who confirmed it was put on the display by mistake as it is actually reserved for somebody else and she wanted to know if I wanted to reserve it too. I accepted and she put my name on the list.
And yesterday the email arrived to say that the book is all ready for my collection. So now I sit with the book at home, started reading it, and now I guess I'll be able to see what the fuss is all about. Terence told me I'm only allowed to borrow the book if I promise not to get addicted to it :-). Hmmm, what do you think? New addiction or not?
