The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

I am very impressed by how many vampire fan friends I have. I had no idea! Yes, the vampire book on my table was from the Twilight series. It was New Moon, which is the second book in the series. At that time I was waiting for book number 1 to arrive, per special request, at the local library. Unfortunately, by the time it arrived, book 2 was due back, without option to renew. When I finally got it, I read Twilight over the course of one evening and one morning. Now I am dying to get my hands on New Moon and I have to wait. I already have the third one, but I refuse to go "out of order", so it will just wait, even though it is killing me. 
 On a side note, my first Stephanie Meyers book was "The Host". It was absolutely FANTASTIC, one of the best I have read in several years. I highly recommend it to everyone. I had put off reading the Twilight series, simply because it was so popular, but after reading her other book, I realized that she is super talented, and that the Twilight series must be popular for a good reason. (run on sentence anyone?) 
 Second side note... I also recently read another vampire series. Totally different idea and theme from Twilight, but also different from anything else I had read. Not anywhere near the same caliber as S. Meyer, but decent writing and plot. It is called the Gardella Vampire series, and the author is Colleen Gleason. The third book was just released, so I haven't read it yet, but the first two were good. 
 This morning I started "Mr. Darcy's Daughters". I haven't read much yet, but I am impressed so far. Can anyone tell that I LOVE to read?

one of my kids right now is obsessed with the twilight books. it's all she talks about. part of it i'm sure is that they provide an escape for her (she's really unhappy about moving to africa). i haven't had the chance to read them yet, but it's good to hear that you like them too.

See, now, I like vampire stuff, but only on TV. I'm lazy like that. But not too lazy to have watched the entire series' of Buffy and Angel multiple times. With Michael away for a while and no great TV shows on, I'm thinking of starting over again.

I like vampire movies that aren't all gross and stuff. I never really got into Dracula because it was kind of slow. But, I like Buffy the Vampire Slayer (movie and series) and I like Interview with a Vampire. The problem I have with books is that I put myself into the life of the character without meaning too and it kind of freaks me out. I do need to be reading something though..maybe I'll go and get a Nicholas Sparks book from the library. I always like those. It does surprise me that you like vampire books though...
