Bella’s Ball: Books, Blood and Vampires

We’re I’m not a Harry Potter fan, but we I know people (and they’re our my age…and older!) who are.

For those of you who like waiting in line for books at midnight and dressing up in costume, we I present the Powell’s Books promotion for Stephenie Meyer’s final installment of the Twilight Saga series.

Breaking Dawn wraps up the teen vampire series and promises that “questions will be answered and the fate of Bella and Edward will be revealed.” And the Powell’s event sounds like honest-to-god book nerd fun:

On Friday, August 1, we are thrilled to host Bella’s Ball, a midnight release
party complete with costume contests, spooky DJs, and even a blood mobile!
Easier than the vampire’s way, a Red Cross bloodmobile will be operating from
3:30-6:30 p.m. — all donors will be rewarded with priority line-placement when
the book goes on sale at midnight. Hold your squeals of joy, all of you in the
Edward or Jacob camps.

Naturally, we’re I’m pointing this out because of the Red Cross bloodmobile connection. Books, blood, vampires…what a creative partnership!

P.S. I KNOW I’m not the only non-Harry Potter person out there…where are my peeps at?


  • I can’t BELIEVE you would make a crazy statement like “we’re not Harry Potter fans”. Are you insane??? No more p-card use for you!

  • Lise, the real question is: why are you not a fan of Harry Potter?

    You don’t have to like the stories to still appreciate the massive amount of people (as this article says, perhaps more adults than children), who have picked up a book for the first time in years to join in with the bi-annual Harry Potter reading craze. The unfortunate part is that there is no evidence that this enthusiasm leads to further joy reading.

    I am glad that you are brave enough to come out and admit that you are not a fan of the stories, but as you have discovered, we fans are loyal to a fault! I just hope that America keeps reading after the magic of Harry fades.
