Twilight at Forks

The movie Twilight is now in theaters. It is predicted to whoop up millions and become one of the year's blockbusters. Stephanie Meyer, the author of the Twilight saga, chooses Forks, Washington as the setting of this modern day vampire love story. Beginning this past summer the small town of Forks is now basking in frenzy because people not only from here in the US but other parts of the world are visiting. The timber city is now becoming a tourist attraction because of the book. Local businesses are also joining the frenzy and creating and selling memorabilia like t-shirts, bags, buttons, and others. Even restaurants are selling Bella burgers, named after the leading girl Bella Swan :-) Among the favorite tourist destinations are Bella Swan's house, the Cullen's house, and the rocky beach. I am not really sure if I will watch the movie in theater or read the book but I will try if I have the chance.

I've heard so much about Twilight and supposedly I have to buy the book series of it because my husband says the book is more detailed than the movie itself..Thanks for posting and you've just reminded me that it's time to buy
