Proposed Mormon Books!
Seriously, do it if you haven’t. Because when it comes to entertainment on the Internet, there’s not much out there that can beat Mormon discussions of Twilight. That’s why I read it (explained in the comments here), and I don’t regret a single page. (And with the movie out, there are plenty of new posts about it.)
It looks like Pixelfish made the same discovery here and is just now trying to figure out Mormons who complain about the fact that the novels “do not go along with LDS beliefs…” — and then tries to guess what a Mormon vampire novel would look like:
Vampires in the geneology library in Salt Lake? Vampires giving the tours at Temple Square? Vampires making rice crispy treats for Homemaking Night? Vampires leading the church choir? Oh, yeah, this is going to be an exciting story!
(Commenter CKD offers: “Vampires eating funeral potatoes…from their own funerals!”)
Of course, we all know there really is a Mormon vampire novel here (which I reviewed here). Arguably better writing than Twilight, but somehow not as famous. Or as funny. (Sorry, Eugene — maybe next time throw in more funeral potatoes! 😉 )
And speaking of funeral potato jokes, this BCC send-up of new Mormon books had me chuckling for days! (Funny how some posts come back to you.) And my fellow atheists wonder why I love Mormon literature so…
