Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Book Cover

I am so hooked! After having finished Stephenie Meyer's book, Twilight, in no time. I am now almost done with the second book, New Moon. I just can't stop. Now, during the times that I get up from my bed resting (doc's order), I just go around browsing reading some more from the author's website.

A very interesting trivia on Twilight's book cover.

The apple on the cover of Twilight represents "forbidden fruit." I used the
scripture from Genesis (located just after the table of contents) because I
loved the phrase "the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil." Isn't this
exactly what Bella ends up with? A working knowledge of what good is, and what
evil is. The nice thing about the apple is it has so many symbolic roots. You've
got the apple in Snow White, one bite and you're frozen forever in a state of
not-quite-death... Then you have Paris and the golden apple in Greek
mythology—look how much trouble that started. Apples are quite the versatile
fruit. In the end, I love the beautiful simplicity of the picture. To me it
says: choice.
