    Less Twilight, More Daylight, Part 3

    | Vestavia, AL, USA | Books & Reading, Top

    (A customer approaches me with a box set of the Twilight novels.)

    Customer: “Hi, I’m looking for a gift for my 13 year old granddaughter and I think she would like these. My wife said to look at them. Don’t they promote abstinence?”

    Me: “Well, sort of. The two main characters do end up sleeping together in the final book, though they are married. There’s some uncomfortable gore, though. I wouldn’t recommend it for a 13 year old.”

    Customer: *confused* “I was told these would be great for her. What kind of gore do you mean?”

    Me: “Well, the girl ends up getting pregnant with a half-vampire baby and, er, the male main character sort of rips it out of her with his teeth.”

    Customer: *drops books in horror* “That’s horrific! And these are for teenage girls? Why would people read that?”

    Me: “I wonder the same thing myself, sir.”
