    OT: Twilight Poll
    avatar
    TinaRVT posted:
    Since many many of us on here are now addicted to Twilight (thanks Panda), I thought I would do a poll about it. (I am bored and stressed, need a diversion). 1.) Have you read or are you reading the Twilight series? b yes, halfway through Breaking Dawn 2.) How long did it take you to read the books? b DSS bought me Twilight for my b-day on 10-27. Now I am half way through Breaking Dawn, so 3 weeks. 3.) Which is your favorite book? b so far, new moon. A lot more action in that book, to me. I like the love story between Jacob and Bella 4.) Team Edward, Team Jacob, or don't have a preference? Why? b Team Jacob. It just seems to me that Bella is more herself around him, and he keeps her in check. 5.) Do you plan on seeing the movie? b yes, DH and I already have a babysitter lined up. I am so excited that he said he would go with me. Plus this will only be our 2nd time out without the kids in well over a year. This question is for everyone but Panda. 6.) Is this a book you would have bought for yourself, had Panda not started the Twilight pendemic on here? b No. I don't normally read Romances.

    1.) Have you read or are you reading the Twilight series? yes 2.) How long did it take you to read the books? It took me 5 days to read the first 3. Breaking dawn took about 4 days once I started reading it. I had a very busy week 3.) Which is your favorite book? I love them all for their own reasons, but I love how Breaking Dawn wraps everything up. 4.) Team Edward, Team Jacob, or don't have a preference? Why? I love Edward and Jacob, but I love Edward for Bella. I like it it all worked out. 5.) Do you plan on seeing the movie? YES! I just have to decide when we're going to see it. This question is for everyone but Panda. 6.) Is this a book you would have bought for yourself, had Panda not started the Twilight pendemic on here? Yes. I actually had heard of them months before and my BFF bought them. I was waiting for her to get them back from her SIL's. Everyone talking about it made me want to read them even more though.

    1.) Have you read or are you reading the Twilight series? Yes I finished Breaking Dawn Sunday night. 2.) How long did it take you to read the books? I'd say 6 weeks or more. I had things that needed to get done so I forced myself to wait between books until I accomplished what I needed. 3.) Which is your favorite book? I would have to say Breaking Dawn and Twilight. 4.) Team Edward, Team Jacob, or don't have a preference? Why? I've always been a little wishy-washy on that but I think Team Edward 5.) Do you plan on seeing the movie? yes. But I don't know when yet. 6.) Is this a book you would have bought for yourself, had Panda not started the Twilight pendemic on here? Probably.

    1.) Have you read or are you reading the Twilight series? read it, and all her excerpts on the website 2.) How long did it take you to read the books? I read them in under a week. 3.) Which is your favorite book? either Eclipse or Breaking Dawn 4.) Team Edward, Team Jacob, or don't have a preference? Why? Mostly team Edward. 5.) Do you plan on seeing the movie? yes, but not sure when we'll get to it. DH kinda of has dibs on Quantum of Solace (which I want to see too), and I'm not sure how many times we can skip out on my parents to go see movies during the week we're up there (we also don't have any child care arrangements here) This question is for everyone but Panda. 6.) Is this a book you would have bought for yourself, had Panda not started the Twilight pendemic on here? Probably not. I had seen the flair on Facebook a long time ago and thought that anything that generated that much flair had to be for teeny boppers and I wouldn't be interested.

Which is your favorite book? so far, Twilight.... but Breaking Dawn might beat it. 4.) Team Edward, Team Jacob, or don't have a preference? Why? Team Edward.

Do you plan on seeing the movie? I will probably have to wait to rent it This question is for everyone but Panda. 6.) Is this a book you would have bought for yourself, had Panda not started the Twilight pendemic on here? No. I don't normally read anything about vampires.

    1.) Have you read or are you reading the Twilight series? Halfway through New Moon. 2.) How long did it take you to read the books? Purchased the first two about a month ago. Started and finished Twilight in about two weeks. New Moon will likely be finished by the end of next week. It's a hectic time at work so only can spare a few hours to read it on evenings and weekends. 3.) Which is your favorite book? So far, Twilight but may change as I get more into the series. 4.) Team Edward, Team Jacob, or don't have a preference? Why? Team Edward for the time being. I liked Jacob when he appeared in Twilight so may switch as I get further into the series. 5.) Do you plan on seeing the movie? Don't see a lot of movies but Twilight seems to stick close to the book from the trailers. If I can find the time, I might see it. 6.) Is this a book you would have bought for yourself, had Panda not started the Twilight pendemic on here? I had ignored it when it appeared where I work (Book wholesaler for libraries). It wasn't until the Breaking Dawn hype that I became interested in reading them. I have read several adult vampire/werewolf series (Kelley Armstrong & Keri Arthur) so it's a genre I like. I had ignored mainly because it was young adult. When I found out more info on the author, the more I wanted to read the series. Good poll questions. Thanks for posting them. Donna
