Book Alert--it will eat your brains!

Hey guys, guess what just came out at the bookstore? That's right, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! Aren't you excited? I have been waiting for this book to come out for so long. For those of you who aren't aware of this book (and couldn't guess what the book was about by the title) this is Pride and Prejudice with zombies included in it. I read the first couple of chapters on Amazon's preview thingy and I thought it was pretty good. Mrs. Bennet is worried about her daughters getting married, and Mr. Bennet is worried about polishing and cleaning his shotguns to defend his family from zombies. It's pretty great, actually.

I'm just waiting for more of these kinds of books to come out--I already have some ideas. How about Crime and Punishment and Robots? Or maybe War and Peace and Ninjas? I think that would really jazz up those books. Now the big question is, do I wait for this to come into the used bookstore, or do I go buy it new? If I wait for it to come in used, I would have to fight the other employees for it. Also, judging by how often we get the original Pride and Prejudice in, it would probably take quite a while. Ah! I don't know what to do. Well, I'm off to write Crime and Punishment and Robots before someone takes my idea. I'm watching you! Stay tuned for less paranoid ramblings, coming soon.

Ah, yes, this has been very popular (I work at a bookstore)...I wanted to borrow a copy today before I went home for the weekend, but couldn't find any of the copies we were supposed to have in stock (all 26 copies...grr!)
I'll try and find it on Monday I guess...But so awesome! Must read!

We saw this in Chapter's on Friday. My hubby says what is with all the books on zombies lately? He said this with a GREAT BIG GRIN! You guessed he loves anything to do with Zombies.
