i heard borders is working their butts off to make this release really good. so i'm going to borders instead of B&N
Lol..since Rockaway Borders is closest to me out of all the listed (so far) book stores..I think I might be able to make an appearance there. I haven't been to taht borders since early May so I don't know anything about a release party. We'll see..hehehe.

Springfield Release Party

Post by Twilight_Obsession »

Hi everyone. I've been lurking the threads for awhile and finally decided to join.

jmem17- My friend and I are going to go to the Springfield Barnes and Noble Release Party. Do we need to make reservations? If so how do we make them? By the way have you guys decided on a theme yet? I heard the theme was prom but I don't want to go there in a dress when the theme is something else. Don't worry I'm sure alot of people will come. There are so many girls like me who are obsessed with Twilight.

Ok I finally have some info about our Breaking Dawn release party for the Springfield Barnes and Noble. All evernt will be starting at 9:00pm. It is best if you pre-order the book. To answer the question above me the best way to go about this is to call the store or go in and tell a bookseller that you want to pre-order the book. If you get me I'll talk your ear off about the event and book lol. Our theme is prom themed and all of us booksellers will be in promwear so definatley come in your prom costume, we will be give prizes for best costume. Also, we will have a spot where you can get your prom picture taken and we will possibly being doing frames for the pictures. We will also have a station where we will be making braclets. We will have punch and music form Stephenie Meyer's plyalist playing all night. We will be having trivia so brush up on your knowledge of the books. And our cafe will be serving an Edward drink and a Jacob drink. So, if you are around on August 1 at 9:00 definately stop by we will be having tons of fun. ANd def try to pre-order the book. If anyone has anymore questions you can post here or message me.

Thanks for the info. I have one more question. Sorry if I am bugging you, but it is easier to post on here rather then call the store. I was wondering if you guys figured out how the line would work for buying the book at midnight. I heard some Barnes and Nobles were having everyone come August 1st in the morning to get wristbands with numbers on them and that your place on line would be determined by that. Is your store doing the same? I'm not going to go at 6 in the morning just so I could be first in line, but I dont want to be last in line either!! Thanks again and good luck with the party.

Yea!!! That's the one we are thinking of going to! But I haven't called them to see what is going on that night, have you??

Plus, there are like 6 of us, and we wanted to get all dressed up, but we REALLY don't want to be the only ones! :oops:

What is your game plan?

UGHH! So I called like 4 B&Noble's just now and basically none of them had a CLUE what was going on.

Princeton is "having a party," but that is basically all that they, Brunswick Square and North Brunswick (rt. 1) had figured out. None were sure of a "prom" theme, which I'm glad i found out, because we were all prepared to show up dressed to the nines.

As of right now, I reserved my books at Borders in Nassau (sp?) Park...right past Market Fair...the GUY i talked to sounded excited about it and had actually heard of it when i asked him, lol.

I love B&N and was super excited about the prom theme (we had each girl covered, vamps - humans alike in our group!) but I really cant see going somewhere where they said, "The Stephenie Meyer books?" in a way that made me wonder if they had ever heard of it before, even though they probably have 50 copies of Eclipse on the display table in the front right now! Grr.

If anyone has different info, or got a more knowledgeable associate who knew more about any events the general Lawrenceville-Princeton-New Brunswick areas, please let me know...i really just want to go where there are going to be fans and fun times!

I called EB B&N last night and the guy told me to call back at the end of the month.
no help whatsoever.
