I watched the first movie, after friends encouraged me. Don't see the appeal for women in my age group, but I guess it's there.

I had to click "the books are ok" because I felt having read them it would be cheating to say that I don't give a damn about them. They are terribly written, though. I mean, I know they're for teenagers and all, but they're still really bad.

My wife Mona's the vampire nut but even she could barely get through the first movie, so I didn't even try.

Plus there's just something creepy about a 105-year-old man getting together with a 15-year-old girl.

I read the books way before the films came out. I love the books. I love the way they were written and I think they are so easily relatable for women.

The movies are an added bonus. I'm not like stalking Robert Pattinson or anything, but I do enjoy the films.

I wouldn't categorize myself as a Twi-hard...just a loyal fan.

I actually know what Twilight is, but I clicked on the last answer, simply because it was the closest to how I feel.

Malcolm...I gave you an award on my blog :)

I read the first book and saw the first movie. They were a good idea and I can understand why children enjoy the books so much. It's also nice that parents can also get some enjoyment out of the stories as well.

Being a vampire genre connoiseur though...they aren't really good vampire stories. I believe they are designed to be a metaphor for born again Christians...a vampire being the "awakened" being like a devout Christian...clever idea. Not my cup of tea as far as adventure/vampire lit goes.

I got to admit I did not really know anything about these characters. Recently I ordered some Barbie dolls (the So In Style collection) and of course Mattel started sending me the collector's catalog. To make a long story short, Mattel has the Bella and Edward doll in a beautiful likeness. The Edward doll is particularly striking. You can check them out at http://www.barbiecollector.com/news/news.aspx?news_id=227

Jessica: It's funny because several women of varying ages have Twilight-related merchandise hanging in their cubes.

Jenna: You sound like you'd make a perfect "lolfan" of the Twilight saga. I just learned from a co-worker that a lolfan is someone who follows a particular franchise, but only to make fun of it... kind of like Mystery Science Theater 3K. :-)

Rich: I never considered the AARP/jailbait angle of the Twilight saga. Edward Cullen... cradle robber!

Penny: Stephanie Meyer has definitely tapped into the female goldmine with these books.

By the way Penny, thanks for the award! I have been meaning to post it... will do so soon.

X. Dell: I like your way of thinking.

Candy: Thanks for the breakdown of the vampire genre. Are you more into vampire books by Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and J.R. Ward?

Pjazzy: The designers of the dolls didn't do too bad with recreating the look of Edward and Bella.
