Twilight Series Book Haul: The Unboxing

Dropping by for the Holiday Party Book Giveaway Tour? See this post to enter to win Ella Dominguez's This Love's Not For Sale through Nov. 20th.

Now, I have a confession to make: until yesterday, I didn't own any of the novels in the Twilight series. The only Twilight books I ever bought were the first volume of the graphic novel (which I gave away) and The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide. Well, I do have a Twilight (the first novel) audiobook, but we won't count that. When I read the Twilight saga, I either borrowed the books from my mom or from the library. I owned all the movies, but not the books - is that a little sad?

Then I saw this in an e-mail from Better World Books.

BWB knows my weakness - I love to buy discounted books. This was an offer I couldn't refuse.

I think this is the first time BWB's actually shipped me the books in a cardboard box. Usually they come wrapped in green plastic. See, for example, my book unwrapping from last June. What does the box say? It says I'm giving myself a 2-weeks-early Hanukkah present.

These are used books, super cheap (not library sale cheap, but close enough), so I don't really mind that the Eclipse dust jacket is a little torn and the corner looks like a werewolf chewed off the top corner.

I am now the proud owner of all four Twilight novels. (I still have to get The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.)

I mentioned it the other day in the popular Pinterest pins post, but I''ll repeat it: Andrea at Reading Lark is currently re-reading the Twilight Saga:
