    The Twilight Of Our Literacy, Part 6

    | Livingston, NJ, USA | Books & Reading

    Customer: “I’ve read all of the Twilight books. I love them! Has Stephenie Meyer done anything else?”

    Me: “Yes, she wrote another book called The Host.

    Customer: “Great! I didn’t see any other books where the Twilight series is, though.”

    Me: “This one is actually shelved in science fiction. I’ll show you.”

    Customer: “Science fiction?! Why?”

    Me: “Well, she didn’t write it for the young adult section. Plus, given the subject matter I guess that’s what made the most sense.”

    Customer: “What’s wrong with the subject matter?”

    Me: “Nothing. It’s about an alien, so–”

    Customer: “Wait, an alien?! So…there are no vampires?”

    Me: “No, not in this one.”

    Customer: “Forget it. I only read vampire books these days. Aliens are just too unrealistic.”
