According to a recent ESPN interview, Sue Bird of the WNBA Seattle Storm is a fan of the Twilight books. The movies haven’t exactly won her over, but she is definitely a die-hard book fan.
“So what have you read recently?
I read “Twilight” when I was overseas. I actually liked it. I didn’t expect to, because I generally don’t like fantasy like that because it’s far-fetched but I liked it. It’s pretty good.
My niece loves it. And there is a whole group of women aged 30-50 called Twi-Moms. A friend of ours saw it seven times in the theater. She couldn’t get enough of it.
I read the book and I thought it was amazing. So you read a book and you have this whole mental image of what people look like and the place they are and then I watched the movie, and I know women go gaga over Edward but I could have picked 10 better Edwards.”
