Dude, it’s zombie season! I ask---“Is it ever not Zombie season?” Anyway, right now we’ve got zombies on the brain (in the brain?)
Just ask the HPB Bibliomaniacs at Store #08 in Richardson, TX and they’ll tell you, if they aren't looking for books ABOUT zombies, they’re shelf-searching FOR zombie shoppers. One of our Facebook fans, Ruggy B., suggested we compile a list of top zombie reads. Ruggy, you got your wish! Here's what the folks at HPB #08 put together.
Top Five Requested Zombie Books:
1- World War Z by Max Brooks
2- The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman & Tony Moore
3- Pride & Prejudice & Zombies by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith
4- Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks
5- Zombies vs. Unicorns ed. by Holly Black & Justine Larbelestier
. . . Not to be confused with the Top 5 books requested BY ZOMBIES:
1- Rich Dad, Dead Dad
2- Slow Walking for Dummies (pictured below)
3- Flesh Dependent No More
4- How to Start Worrying People and Stop Living
5- Oh, the People You Will Eat!
Thanks to our undead-loving Richardson employees, especially Matt Rox, for this sweet illustration! Have you hugged a Zombie today? Just kidding---DO NOT HUG ZOMBIES.
If you visit HPB this spook-filled weekend, and you happen upon a zombie, don’t forget to snap a pic and tweet us! Or for a less scary game, check out the titles on the spines (pun intended) behind the zombie -- brilliant, right? And HIL-arious. Just be sure to keep your neck protected while you crane your head to the side.
