Check out this awesome letter that EyesofAmber wrote to the Twihaters out there:

The haters, the jokers, the mockers and the teasers... this post is for you!

As we are in between the major waves of Twi-mania at the moment, it seemed like a good, safe time to address you. We've met before. Either on the obscure web blog, or a very popular one (good example - Regretsy.com has a whole category devoted to Twilight products). We might have corresponded via email and on the forum boards. Hey, you even stopped by my house and made a whole production of discussing the collection of certain black-covered books on my shelf which apparently represents total lack of literary taste. And while the latter I can easily ban from coming over anymore, the whole army of virtual twi-haters is always lurking around, waiting for the right moment to attack...

What I want to tell you... I understand some of your frustration. Not sure why you need to unleash it on the ones actually enjoying these quite harmless books... But let us dissect the issue more thoroughly, shall we?

• OPINION: The books suck! (no pun intended).
• MY ANSWER: Books are no literary masterpieces, Mrs. Meyer is no Shakespeare, nobody ever said they were. That said, there's definitely a case to be made for a book that touches you on some emotional level. It clearly struck a cord with so many people, there must be some magic in it, don't you think? If it didn't "do it" for you, maybe something else will. And not necessarily a Pulitzer-prize winner ;)

• OPINION: Everybody knows it's no good.
• MY ANSWER: It reminds me of a good old joke. One guy meets another and says: "Have you heard the latest opera sang by Pavarotti?" The other one answers: "Yes, I did, it's horrible". The first dude is surprised, he says:"Really? When did you go see it?" Second guy's answer is the kicker: "Oh, I didn't, but a friend of mine sang a piece of it to me." So, really, TRY reading it first, and then we'll talk

I had 4 teenage girls riding in my car that hated Twilight (I'm older than they are) and it was the most boring car ride... I kept my mouth shut about having read all the books several times, owning the movies, seeing them in the theaters, going to Vancouver during filming, visiting Forks for my birthday, etc... it was kind of ironic that 4 teenage girls didn't like Twilight (and bye the way had never even read them!) but I LOVE almost everything about it and I'm about twice their age... It's super annoying that the people who are typically the most verballt bashing of the saga have never actually given it a chance but judge it anyway... Ridiculous.

I was able to read it by copy and pasting the link instead of clicking on it. Excellent! I won't tell you how old I am, but my daughter is older than Rob, so that should give you an idea. I will never apologize for loving Twilight, and I've learned to only discuss it with people who love it like I do. There's no point in arguing. What I will never understand, though, is how someone can put down/hate a book or a movie or an actor without ever having read the books, seen the movies, or seen an actor's body of work. Oh well, it's their loss.

I love the article she was very on point. When I first came across Twilight was the same as Harry Potter it was very popular and so I avoided it. I am a avid reader and hadnt heard of the books and then I saw the movie being advertised and was intrigued. I have been in love with the books and movies ever since, now I just wait to be out with my book of choice(usually Breaking Dawn) and get the stares when people see the name or the cover and I just do my favorite Jackson smile and wink LOL p***** them off everytime
