Wow! I’ve received twelve party invites in the last twenty-four hours and am busy making up goodie boxes for everyone who is sending me an invite to their Flirting with Forty premiere party on December 6th. (For an incredibly cool and original invite check out Melody’s scrapblog invite!)
But Flirting isn’t the only big movie event happening. I’m really excited about Twilight, the movie based on Stephanie Meyer‘s book. I’ve read all four of her Twilight series as well as her adult release.
Last night I attended a book club in Woodinville, Washington and every woman there but one had read one or more of the Twilight series. I was so impressed! These weren’t teenage readers, either, but women between 40 and 60, all neighbors and friends, many with teenage kids who turned their moms onto the series. Megan Crane was the one who turned me onto the books and I’m so glad she did. Last night I had more fun discussing Stephanie’s books than my own which made me think that I should do a fun contest to celebrate the movie Twilight with a Twilight contest.
So here’s the scoop on the contest: I’m giving away a copy of Twilight, which is the first book in the series, a small box of yummy See’s chocolates (I have a thing for See’s, especially those Bordeaux), and lots of Jane Porter goodies including my brand new vanilla scented candle perfect to illuminate an indulgent bath. To be entered in the contest, just post below and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow night and post the winner’s name on Thursday morning. What to post? Tell me if you’ve read any of the books yet? Are you planning on seeing the movie? Have you even heard about Twilight? And if you have, who got you to read your first Stephanie Meyer book?
