Breaking Dawn - reading
I finally bought it. I've been wanting to buy this for the longest but not in hardcover and when I had the extra cash. lol Depending on the book, I'm not the biggest fan of HC. So, I'm glad I have the softcover.

Anyway, from reading reviews on Goodreads it seems that the information that's in the book is basically on Stephenie's official site and/or Twilight Lexicon website. Plus with some additional information. I've never really visited those websites before, well not that much or religiously. Stephenie's maybe once or twice and TL maybe three times.

Plus, I'm the type to like having something in my hands that I can hold, flip through, skim, make notes, etc. And I can take my time reading it and read it straight through or jump to certain things. I've already started it and thinking I'll read it from beginning to end. Maybe. lol

Does anyone else have the book? Do you think it's worth it to have? Just for die-hard fans or casual fans? Is it a waste of time or it should be part of your Twilight collection?

I'm glad it's part of my collection which I actually have to fix, add to, etc. :)

Oh, I had forgot about the BD2 companion! it's true, I liked the BD1 one. I suppose the reason for not releasing it is that they released instead "The Twilight Saga: The Complete Film Archive", which includes material from the last movie.

Although quite honestly it surprises me that they didn't release the two books even if there was stuff duplicated, they haven't qualms when it comes to get money from the fans. A good example is the BD1 extended edition! I've been struggling about buying the BD2 dvd when I know in a year or so they are going for sure to release a great pack with all the movies and a few minutes of new material or new extras. But yeah, finally caved in...

When I got back into the fandom, I bought Eclipse for ten bucks, no extras because it was convenient and I liked the price. Maybe one day in the future when like you said they erlease a pack with all the movies and extras, I'll buy it but for now I'm only buying what I can afford right now. lol

The Complete Film Archive it's a pretty book, lots of props, it's one of the Twilight items I like most. I'd go for it, if/when you can afford it

Scarlett71177 explains it perfectly in a comment above:

It's kind of like a scrapbook with BTS stuff, how they made the movie, info on the locations, costumes, etc... There's lots of neat inserts, envelopes with mementos, ticket stubs, stuff like that. It's kinda cool.
