    "Had you read the “Twilight” books before getting the script?

    Jackson Rathbone: No, but many friends of mine had and filled me in on the story. Then I read Twilight and I saw what all the fuss was about. Once I landed the role of Jasper, all my cousins wrote me—I have a huge family—and told me how excited they were that I was in the movie because they loved the books so much."

  2. Book of Haikus by Jack Kerouac

    Jackson Rathbone: A recent favorite of mine is a book of Jack Keruac's haikus. I always loved the form of the haiku and the Beat Generation, so there you go."
