TwilightGuys Report: Convinced By A Convertible

October 14th, 2008 at 12:02 am by Kaleb Nation


CONVINCED BY A CONVERTIBLE

I am just out of college and married. My wife was introduced to the Twilight series in June 2008.

After a month or so of her (my wife) being overtaken by another man, Edward, she made me a deal. If I would read Twilight ,just the first book, I could drive her convertible for the rest of the week. I said ok and the rest is history.

I started to read Twilight, and finished 2 days later. I loved it! I don’t know if I have ever even liked a fictional book. I am def. a non-fictional reader. I started reading New Moon the next day and stayed up all night reading it..finished it in one sitting. It just drew me in.

After a week to a week and a half of reading, dreaming, and not being able to get away from Bella and what would happen next, I finished Breaking Dawn. I loved every bit of it! I may not be a fanatic like my wife, but I most def. try to get other guys to read it, so I don’t feel like too much of a woman.

You know it is a great book and series when it is made for teenagers and this 23 year old man knows what will happen in the book, because his wife told him a million times already, and he still couldn’t put it down.

I am a guy and thought Twilight was amazing!! I still have dreams of it.”

Well you have to convince some guys somehow :D

I have come down with the flu, so if I’m not around for a couple of days, that is why. I will, however, have my post for the Epilogue and my final thoughts soon.

    YAY! If *I* had a red convertible… but I don’t, so it’s a Moot Point.

    Get better soon!

    (Last night I dreamed that I taught you to dance. You weren’t very good. :-P Of course you may be a fabulous dancer in real life for all I know, lol.)

  8. Sarah

    Get well soon, Kaleb. That’s a great story!

  9. Alli

    That’s a pretty cool story. Wish my brother could be convinced by something so simple (not that either of us is old enough to drive).

    Feel better Kaleb!!!

    That’s a cute story! In my case, my high school (now college) aged male cousin read Twilight first and then he got my 40yo husband to read it. They both got another female cousin to read it and when the three of them started talking about going to the movie this year I figured I better read up so I could go along. I LOVED it!
    Feel better Kaleb!

    I am a 30-year old former lawyer/current senior bureaucrat, who typically reads books written by Gore Vidal, Edward Rutherfurd and Donald Kagan.

    However, I enjoy a light romp through the pages of a book from time-to-time, and started reading the HP books just before the 4th book was released – I subsequently bought each HP book immediately upon its release, and had each read within the first 24 hours of said release.

    Friends of my wife, aware of my enjoyment of the HP books, suggested the Twilight series. Despite not being a “vampire” fan (I don’t dislike horror – but it just isn’t my bag), I reckoned I would give it a shot.

    Four books later, I am thoroughly impressed with Stephenie Meyer, and am just glad that I got into Twilight after all four books were complete, so I did not have to wait for a new work’s release.

    Fabulous stuff – and anyone who deigns not to read the series because of any misconception of it as some sort of “love story” is short-changing themselves.
