A Summer Reading List for the True Zombie Fan #SummerZombie

by. Jay Wilburn

There will be a quiz when we return to school …

Bukowski drinking

Summer reading?! Who do teachers think they are? Summer was our territory. It was supposed to be the anarchy of youth. If we were readers, then we already had ambitions to choose books for ourselves and they seldom had any resemblance to what was assigned to us in school. I have yet to find anyone who became a lifelong reader from the books assigned in school or for the summer reading lists.

If you are a zombie fan though, hopefully this tour has done a better job than your English teacher at creating a list of books you’ll want to read. Either way, this is for a grade and it will go in your permanent record, if you end the summer unprepared. Time to think about your future and the coming zombie apocalypse.
