Something about the "Twilight" series causes a thirst that can't be quenched. Despite the fact that the next book in the saga is on hold and the next film, "New Moon," won't hit theaters until late November, fan conventions have been going strong all summer in cities across the nation.
And if you think it's just the tween crowd behind this, think again.
TwiTour, a weekend-long celebration, sounds like it would be reminiscent of a high school pep rally: raucous cheering with scads of teenage girls. But while there was plenty of screaming at the July 12 TwiTour in Atlanta, there were also plenty of women and a sprinkling of men who were unashamed that they were way beyond high school.
"It's the pure innocence of newfound love," explained 36-year-old fan Kimberly Hunt, who's not only read all four books, but also the 12 unfinished chapters of "Midnight Sun," a novel from the view of main vampire Edward's perspective, that are up on Stephanie Meyer's Web site. "Chivalry's dead, and you don't see it anymore. It takes you back to the days of your first love."
BTW - Anybody need a Thursday ticket to the special screening Twilight? Adriana's friend dropped out, and now she's got an extra ticket. She's love to hang out with another Twilighter, so email email@example.com if interested.
