Ch. 9 Man Talk

Z beautiful

Does Twilight really inspire further reading?

It's often said that one of the best things about the Twilight series is that it gets people (teenagers/ young adults) reading. There is also a huge argument against that. They say that the quality of books that Twilight inspires people to read is low, therefore doing nothing to broaden the reading material of teens. That said, please keep in mind that this poll is not only for the teens in this community, but for all ages. I'd like to know what you're reading and maybe get an idea of how much merit the argument against Twilight holds. If you'd like to give your age with your comment that would be great (or just mention if you're a teen or over twenty). Also, what do you think of this argument?
