Bonnet Porn+Twilight=Domination

September 9, 2009

Amish Twilight

(context coming shortly)

UPDATE: Okay, context.  Gawker put up this piece on “bonnet porn” – those steamy Amish romance that are all over, to those who live with me in Amish country – and how it could save the publishing industry (perhaps a slight overstatement, but only slight.)

“‘It’s almost like you put a person with a bonnet or an Amish field in the background and it automatically starts to sell well,’ Ms. Love [a B&N book buyer] said.”

And obviously, the above book cover was the first thing that came into my head, and obviously, I had to make it right quick before someone else made millions out of it.

Okay, Twihards, this is how it’s going to go down.  You do this to Wuthering Heights,

I do this to Edward, mkay?

Amish Edward Cullen

And I note that I was totally pro that reprint – anything to get the young’ins reading more, until I saw this:

“is this book in old english or modern english??”

“just a question to anyone who has read this book is it in old english or mordern understandable english? if so i want it but it sounds like it’s just the original version with a different cover.”

As a much cleverer Jezebel poster paraphrased:

“Oooo, if it’s not written in sparkle English I won’t read it. Unfuckingbelievable.”
