    Its nice to find out that I am not alone in avoiding reading books with a lot of hype. I avoided the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series for much the same reason, but I was doing some volunteer work with sick kids, and one of the girls I was visiting asked me to read the first one to her, and I got hooked from that!

    I haven't read or watched Twilight. I usually avoid the fantasy genre, though.

    I read the first book WAY back before it was popular. By the time it was all the rage I was over it. I don't like romance novels or vampires, but I did like the book more than I'd have expected . . . but not enough to read all of them or see the movie.

    I have not read it... i want to see the movie so i can make fun of the sparkley vampires. I'm ok with vampires..
    I LOVED Buffy the Vampire slayer and Angel, I just cannot get into Twilight or even Harry Potter... I've tried to read Ann Rice and just cannot do it, but I loved the smaller stories by L.J. Smith (I was a big fan of Night World)

    I haven't read the books or seen the movies. I might try reading the first book this summer to see what the big deal is, but I'm not really a fan of vampire stuff. If I like it despite that than I'll know it's good stuff.
