My Thoughts
This is a wonderful collection of very entertaining essays ranging in voice from funny to informative.  It is hard to see this as a book that the average reader will be chomping at the bit 
to go out and buy.
That being said however, if you are:
1. A diehard fan of Twilight with a serious OCD that drives you to collect EVERY Twi-related thing known to man.
2. Studying vampire lore or the like and have to read it for a class.
3.  Prone to "pretty cover syndrome" and just can't resist.
4.  Just can't accept the fact that the saga has ended and are sure that there are a few "missing chapters" hidden in there SOMEWHERE. 

You will probably buy this book.
This is a very light read that is brimming with both fact and opinion about all thing Twilight.
Though this book can and probably will find it's way into someone's curriculum, it is never dry and 
very honest in it's presentations of the authors' love/hate or neutral feelings about the force of nature
that is Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga.
