No, my friends I'm not a super geek, but I am super geeked. You see, I went and saw New Moon last night (which BTW totally loved) and I left the theater smiling like a fool? Why? Was it Edward's sparkliness? Jacob's ripped bod?
It was the fact that all this media greatness started with a book, an idea, a dream. TWILIGHT, LOTR, HARRY POTTER - heck, LOVELY BONES has been made into a movie too.
I really get excited when books have a mass impact on culture and thus society. It makes my academic and creative brains go into a tizzy. I get so excited I'm not sure if I want to write a new novel or work on my dissertation. I just can't decide!!!!!
Either way, I'm happy. Life is good. Books are awesome. And it's Friday.
(Oh, and these photos are from my trip to Forks, WA this past May. See, told you I wasn't a super geek. Oh, wait...)
