'Twilight' vs 'The Vampire Diaries'

There is all these new vampire shows coming out that had not yet been seen till Twilight appeared such as True Blood. Now there is this new show called 'The Vampire Diaries' based on the book by author L.J. Smith.

One of the characters from the show Paul Wesley was asked if he has seen Twilight. He says that he purposely didn't watch the movie prior to shooting the pilot for his series, because he didn't want it to influence his performance in anyway considering the similarity in subject matter.

"And now, I've seen parts of it," he says. "I think if there are similarities to Robert Pattinson's character in 'Twilight,' so be it."

Have you read any of the books? Do you think it is similar to Twilight at all and will you be watching the show?
