^ Yeah there are LoL, just the other day I came across an 11 year old who's read all 3 books. Like seriously, when I was 11, reading just wasn't a hobbie, it was like a chore. I hated it haha.

I'll be pretty peeved off if there are all these little kids there, and I'm like the oldest :shock:

Well they dont allow the book in elementry schools & in the middle schools, its a 'big book' so most kids dont read it & in the public library, its on the top of Young Adult (which means its a good, popular book, if its ever checked in) so most kids cant reach & dont bother.

Managing the YA section in my bookstore, I see quite a few pre-teens reading it. In fact, just yesterday, I was perusing the summer reading journals that kids have been turning in to us, and found a girl going into the 6th grade who already read all 3 books this summer. It's more common than you think. And actually, I recommend those books to parents because I would rather have those girls reading Twilight than Gossip Girl and Clique.

Young girls like to feel older than they are, so if they are going to be reading books above their level, they may as well read books with no cursing, sex, or drugs.

However, I don't think these girl will actually be able to convince their moms to bring them to the party...unless they have Twilight moms!

I'm in my thirties and I've found my Edward. I just love the books. And I know there are quite a few of us who will be attending the midnight release parties.

As for the numbers, it will be much smaller than DH. I obviously don't have statistics from every store but I'm sure most of them are following along the same lines as the one I will be going to.

For DH my Borders had over 1,600 copies reserved for the midnight release - and there were people who showed up that foolishly had not reserved a copy. At that same Borders there are 86 copies of Breaking Dawn on reserve as of last week. There is something like just over 3 million copies of BD for the first run, there were over 12 million for DH. That, also, should give you some indication of the numbers to expect.

Though I want Ms. Meyer's books to do great, I also would enjoy a release party much more if it wasn't completely over-run with people. It's much more fun when you can actually hear what's going on and participate instead of trying to push your way through a crowd of 1,000 people to find out what's happening.
Be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

I think parties will be more enjoyable with fewer people. Especially in a B&N like mine (which is in the mall) so its very small.

I said very small majority...Because I know a lot of people in my family, (not my family I live with, but my extended family, most of my second cousins have read the books, most of them are in their middle/early 30's.My aunt and great aunt have also read them, both of them are in their 50's.) who have read them.

I volunteered as a librarian's assistant at my old elementary school and there were always 5th graders checking out Twilight or New Moon, they didn't have Eclipse ordered yet at that time.

But yes, the major majority of readers are teenage girls, and the less likely found/known teenage guys that have read them. (I actually know a few who have.... lol)[/quote]
