  1. Great list, Corey! It’s dangerous seeing other book lists, because I am tempted to add more to my own.

    I’m glad to see that Jane made honorable mention. Are you going to follow it up with the zombie book? :-)

    1. Y’know… I may just do that! I’ll probably try to read another of Austen’s books, too – perhaps Northanger Abbey, since it’s one of my Mom’s favorites. :)

      2012 may be the year for zombie books: I’ve already got Max Brook’s World War Z and Zombie Survival Guide lined up, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies may get added to the list as well! :D

  2. Great list. I’ve read a few of those, and should pick of several of them to read.

    (P.S. If you read Pride, Prejudice And Zombies” you have to let me know if it’s good.
