Vampires

As of late, all the girls in the young adults group at church seem to be reading the Twilight series of books for pleasure.  From what I’ve gathered its a story about a girl who falls in love with a vampire. Interesting topic for a church group I realize, but oh well.  I have no objection to a little vampire lore, as long as it’s not taken too seriously.  In fact, oddly enough, it would be downright hypocritical of me to say anything were I to have an objection, especially now. 

Sometime last week I was perusing the sale racks at Borders in Pasadena for some light pleasure reading, and I came across a book called The Historian.  Figuring that it was a historical mystery of sort, a genre I have grown to love, I picked it up off the shelf. 

After reading the jacket I was convinced that I would love the book.  There was only one aspect I wasn’t quite so sure of; it was about vampires.  Pretty coincidental that I would pick up a book about vampires at a time when several people I know are reading a totally unrelated vampire story.  To top it off, if you have read any of The Historian, as I am doing now, you would find this situation pretty hilarious and maybe even a bit spooky.  

All spookiness aside, I’m reading the book and thoroughly enjoying it. I love a good mystery.  I would recommend it but I’m only 1/3 of the way through, so if it sounds interesting read at your own risk.  If it doesn’t sound interesting, watch out.  I may have to send a vampire after you.

Disclaimer: Vampires, as described in this post or the aforementioned books, do not actually exist. I don’t think.

Question: What’s your opinion on vampires?
