Courtney said...

Its me again :-) Is there a link to the quiz if it is a new one we have to take to enter, I couldnt find it on

I kinda surprised myself with those quizes! Not perfect but not bad considering how long ago I read the books!

I'm going to see New Moon when it comes out on DVD and I can get it through netflix. I'm not a huge fan and it's hard to get out to movies with a little one and no babysitter.
