Twlight series author Stephenie Meyer broke with horror-novel tradition when she created vampire characters impervious to the sun.
Deseret Book, however, has decided that Meyer's best-selling vampire romance books will no longer see the light of day -- at least on the shelves of its chain stores. Customers may instead request Meyer's 2005 novel Twilight -- or its three companion volumes, New Moon , Eclipse and Breaking Dawn -- by special order for either store pick-up or delivery by mail.
"We're never really given a reason for these things," said Steve Hartvigsen, manager of the Deseret Book store at Valley Fair Mall. "We just get a return sheet and send books back."

Wait...you're kidding. Because in Meyers' vampire world they can come out in daylight, a book store wont sell the Twilight series? That is about the most bizarre (and heavy-handed, I might add) instance of censorship I've ever heard of. They make the Vatican look open-minded

I think that is very un-First-Amendment and tacky. Fortunately, there are about 5 million book sellers that would LOVE to take our money for the Twilight series.
