Here are the observations that I have made
- The Marketing seems to be focused on the same group of people that like shows like Smallville, Dawsons Creek and other Teenage dramas
- When I am in an Airport, I see the books prominently displayed, indicating that there is a strong demand from the business traveler for this book
- HBO has seen there is a strong demand for the Teenage Vampire Drama's and has started a series True Blood. Wikipedia says that it will be the third most viewed HBO series behind Sex in the City and The Sopranos.
Someone please tell my why there is such a huge craze about this Series. A friend of mine wrote about it on his blog and now gets a few thousand(maybe less) visitors to his blog every day.
Is this another Harry Potter trend where the book appeals to a wide range of readers?
Do the people who enjoy it, enjoy their high school years?
Maybe that is it, I had more than enough Swirlie's, wedgies and pink bellies to never warrant another trip back to those dreaded years. (Napoleon Dynamite rang a little too true, except for Pedro winning the Election, and Napoleon getting Deb)Anyway, you get to play the Salesman. Make you case why Twilight is all that, or why Twilight is Saved by the Bell with vampires (that would have been a better progression than the college years)
Imagine Screech as a Vampire, that would make his love of Lisa all the more exciting
