Panel 1: Barbara is teaching a kids' lit class.

Student: At least Twilight
has got kids reading, right?

Barbara: True, girl who thinks I can't see her texting.

Panel 2: The screen now shows a picture of someone reading a book, an "equals" sign, and a checkmark.

Barbara: As much as I loathe Twilight's style and subjet matter, I must admit that any reading is better than no reading.

Panel 3:

Barbara: And maybe some little girl who starts out with a mindless crush on Edward will grow up to write imaginative, nuanced books herself.

Panel 4:

Student: Edward...squee!

Barbara: Or that may happen, in which case I wash my hands of humanity.

Alt-Text: My brain knows that any reading is better than no reading. My temper goes RAAAAAARRRRRR every time I think of Edward watching Bella sleep.
