If anyone's forgotten, it's an election year in the United States and publishers have been just a little bit reluctant to release much blockbuster fiction or nonfiction into the media vacuum this summer...until now!
Yes, vampire fans, Little, Brown Books for Children is delivering 2.5 million copies of Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn, the final installment of her bestselling "Twilight" quartet on Saturday at 12:01 a.m. Teenage girls across the nation -- and world, no doubt -- will get to learn if Bella and Edward the vampire finally tie-the-knot. (Can't stand to wait: here's a spoiler from Entertainment Weekly).
I've been told that a few grown men out there are even fans of the books -- though the one I tried to talk to, a private banker no less -- flatly refused to allow me to use his name or even mention his very existence. (Sorry Dude!)
Are their male Stephenie Meyer fans out there? If so, unmaskyourselves.
