1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is?

Their attraction to one another. It's such a normal thing to happen between two teenagers but I think the fact that Edward has supernatural abilities actually enhanced it just a tad.

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?

He realizes that she enjoys reading more than your average teenager. There are things to interprutt and analyze with books that you don't have with other things. Plus Edward has been around for over a hundred years. Books have been around for over 100 years unlike CDs, movies, TV shows, and Bella's relatives. Essentially more to talk about.

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?

Wuthering Heights, Romeo and Juliet, and works by Jane Austen simply becasue that's what has been mentioned. Haha. Maybe she's a Harry Potter fan too? :P

4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires.

It makes sense since that would be a vampire's morning, their beginning of the "day" for them but for Edward he sees it as the end of the day which I find incredibly interesting that he really distances himself from other vampires unconciously even.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is?

A: The natural chemistry between them, heightened by the danger of what they shouldn't want but do. The temptation of the very thing that could destroy them both but that could also bring them the kind of joy few people will ever know.

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?

A: Edward comes from a time where television and the like weren't in existence. It seems to me a time when people read more. People are lazier now. Plus, reading is a very intellectual thing. He speaks of how the minds of most other girls are very shallow. He already knows Bella isn't like the rest but since he can read her mind he wants to see just how deep she goes and I think he's pleasantly surprised just how deep that is.

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?

A: Classics.

4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires.

A: Sad.

1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is?

To me, at this moment, it's a mix of their chemistry and attraction and connection to each other and how badly he wants to kill her.

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?

So he can compare himself to those in the books, possibly. Maybe so he can read up on those books.

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?

Strong romance books partially, all of the books being older, more or less classics. She is older than her years, after all.

4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires.

It was interesting and beautiful. That part was one of those that needed to be reread before going on. I loved it.

<b>1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current it?</b>
Attraction. It isn't so much a current as an increased awareness of proximity and the realization that they could quite easily touch'but don't.

<b>2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?</b>
If he is as old as he seems that he has mostly likely read just about everything. Plus, books can reveal a lot about a person, from their tastes to how deeply they think about the things they read and just what those thoughts are. Knowing her thoughts on certain books would reveal a lot to him about her character.

<b>3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?</b>
I have a feeling that she reads a wide variety, a little bit of everything. I'm sure Jane Austen got mentioned very quickly, as well as the Bronte sisters. Older books, like Victorian lit, probably featured prominently.

<b>4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires?</b>
It made me a little sad, almost sorry for Edward. To see the night as not a blessing but merely another bit of boring tedium to get through, it certainly casts a sad glow on the vampire life.

1 Chemistry.
2 Bella's a bookworm, and he WAS bombarding her with a billion questions, in the book category, she had a lot of answers.
3 Classics, romance, etc.
4 Er, truthfully, I still have NO CLUE what he was talking about.

1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is?
Pure, unadulterated attraction. It is very obvious at this point that there is a great deal of chemistry between Bella and Edward, and it doesn't just stem from hormones, because of course, he is a vampire. It goes a lot deeper than simply physical attraction; I think it's more an attraction between souls. Not that the physical side doesn't play a role, though - oh, it definitely does.

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?
Edward has had a lot of time on his hands in the past ninety years or so; I'm sure he's done plenty of reading. Since their taste in music is very similar, I think he was curious to see if they enjoy the same books as well. Plus, I think he understands that Bella is, as he puts it, not your average 17-year old, and has probably read quite a few of the classics.

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?
Jane Austen's works, Shakespeare, "Wuthering Heights", and other classic pieces of literature. Probably a few contemporary works as well - fiction, though; I really don't see Bella as a non-fiction reader.

4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires?
It was very melancholy. I saw Edward's point, but then I wanted to give Bella a hug when she made the comment about only being able to see the stars at night. In hindsight, I happen to see a bit of foreshadowing of "New Moon"...

1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is?
The excitement of being w/the person you're crazy about.

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?
Books are timeless and it appears that both Edward and Bella are avid readers. You can spend a lot of time talking about books, comparing books/story lines/etc. You can really have long discussions about books and that could def. fill time. It gives them a common ground that they can fall back on, conversation wise.

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?
The classics (Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Anna Karenina, etc.), some modern classics (To Kill A Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye), some "fun" books (maybe Harry Potter?), things she's read in school (Shakespeare). Maybe Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, etc.

4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires.
I think that it's sad that the only time you aren't "vulnerable" is when the rest of the world has decided to "call it a day". Plus, twilight is such a short time in comparison to a full day ... and to do something in that short of time frame has to be unfulfilling. Plus, to know that the desolate night when there's really nothing to do (b/c let's face it, he's not in NYC) is ahead of you w/not much to do (again, nothing worse than infomercials at 3 am) has to be very boring!!!!

The same kind of electric current anyone gets when there is real chemistry between them and another person. Whatever you call that. :D

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books?

*sigh* If all I had was time I would read every book on the planet. You can tell more about a person by the books they read than by anything else. Edward has probably read all the books Bella has ever even seen so being able to relate through books is easy for him too. Its like meeting another Twilighter, you don't need to ask basic questions or go through the ridiculousness of small talk. You know you see on that plane together, so its easier to talk about more important and interesting things.
(For instance, ask someone what they thought of Catcher in the Rye and you can tell more about that person in that second than you can by talking to them for hours)

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?
The classics, the ones everyone is supposed to have read. I'm sure she's read the 'Canon' of books twice over.

4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires.

I thought it was interesting and incredibly sad. Though they live forever, seeing the end of another day must be impossibly hard for them, knowing that there is another day, but that must bring the end of the previous day. Knowing nothing will ever change except the world around them, that a day for a human can be extremely long, but for them its like a blink of their existence.

1. Each time they are in science class, Bella describes an electric-like current passing between her and Edward. What do you think this current is? Its the attraction like a powerful magnet. Very deep rooted feelings.A connection on a totally different plane then any have had.

2. During all the questions, we learn that the thing Edward asks the most about are books Bella has read. Why do you think he mostly asks about books? I think you can tell alot about someone by what kind of books they read. How their minds work. He is a classic so he knows alot of books from the good old days. Maybe he will find out she is old fashioned like him. Or he wants to see if she is into sci-fi, horror that might give her some insight into Edwards mysterious ways?

3. What type of books do you think Bella mentions?
I think she likes the classics. Jane Austen.She is not like other kids her age.
4. What was your reaction to hearing what twilight is like for vampires.Sad :cry: I just wanted to hug him. Twilight is a very short amount of time and he says thats the easiest and safest time but also the saddest. I think he likes being acting human. To be able to be out in the world surrounded by others where as at night everyone is sleeping while they are always awake. kind of lonely even with the family around. Especially now when he wants to spend every minute with Bella.
Emmett grinned. "Fall down again, Bella?" I glared at him fiercely. "No, Emmett. I punched a werewolf in the face." Emmett blinked, and then burst into a roar of laughter.
