Twilight will be re-released to celebrate its 10th anniversary, publisher Little, Brown announced Monday.
The 10th anniversary edition of Twilight will hit store shelves on October 6, 2015 — exactly 10 years and one day after the book was first published in 2005.
The special version of the book will include “exclusive bonus content,” but further details weren’t shared today.
“It’s amazing to me that 10 years have passed since Twilight was first published,” said Meyer in a statement. “For me, this anniversary is a celebration of the fans, with all of their incredible passion and dedication. I’m excited to get to spend time with them again.”
Added Little Brown head Megan Tingley, “I felt the same thrill reading this special anniversary edition as I did when I read the manuscript a decade ago. I’m pleased we have this opportunity for devoted fans to relive the extraordinary Twilight experience, as well as for a new generation of readers to discover it for the very first time.”
To mark the occassion, Stephenie Meyer will host signings in New York City and Los Angeles. While visiting the former she’ll also be participating in an event at New York Comic-Con.
Twilight’s 10th anniversary edition is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
Little, Brown notes that over 155 million copies of all four books in the Twilight Saga plus the spinoffs The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide have been sold worldwide.
How much higher would that number have been if Midnight Sun was published?
