Friday morning Steph and I were up and out the door (with JD) at 6:45am. We got to Barnes and Noble around 7am. We were arriving to get wrist bands for the evening event to get the book at 12:01am this morning. We thought we were a bit crazy but quickly learned there are 4 groups of Twilight readers. Those that Like the books, those that love the books (us), those obsessed with the books, and those that need a 12 step program and think they live in the books. We heard a lot of interesting conversations. The crazies were out in force today in Orem!
They were splitting everyone into groups A-Z with 50 people per group. Surprisingly we were close to the front of the line at 9am when they handed out the bands and we ended up in the first group after those that slept overnight. Yeah for group B.
To avoid some of the more avid and crazy people that would be at the evening event we decided to get there late and grab some desert first! It was a good plan and the desert was great. Masha, Katy, Steph, her sister and I all headed off to the store. We got there around 10pm. It was INSANE! There were thousands of people there and Steph and I were SO GLAD that we went in the morning when it wasn’t so crowded.
I made friends with the girls next to us (also in the “love the book” catagory) and we laughed a lot. Time really flew and next thing I knew we were standing up and crazy people were screaming everywhere. You would have thought it was a rock concert.
By 12:12am we were out the door and in the car with our books. I wanted to blog before I started the book, knowing you won’t hear from me till I’m done. Enjoy the crappy camera phone pictures. The first ones are from the morning, then there are some from that night.
