Dewey's Read-a-Thon

I just found out about Dewey's Read-a-Thon last night.

For 24 hours, you read books, post to blogs about your reading, and visit other readers’ blogs. You also participate in mini-challenges throughout the day. It happens twice a year, in April and in October.

I thought it was such a great idea that I signed up to be a cheerleader right away.

I can't wait to participate next April!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

I read The Classics and not only under force. I read Ulysses in just eight, short months. But here is the real Truth: Give me a juicy zombie story and I'm hooked. I read World War Z like it was The Manifesto for the Zombie Apocalypse. (Just in case you are wondering, I am so prepared. When it happens, you should hang with me.)

I knew that I would be reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth once I saw this trailer:

So how could I resist Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

Every co-worker from every job is chomping at the bit to read PaPaZ. As one of my customers pointed out, "You wouldn't think there would be that much cross-over, but there is."

It makes me wonder what other books in the public domain I could spruce up with a little monster action....

Anna Karenina and Werewolves

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Vampires

Frankenstein and oh wait, never mind

What would be your Literary Monster Mash-Up?
