In keeping with our Halloween theme for our October reading, this week’s reading is a “biography” about one of the greatest American presidents … who also happened to be on a secret mission to rid America of vampires. Seth Grahame-Smith’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” gives us our first “comedy” book (although I’m pretty sure it’s a dark comedy) of our book challenge.
All a reader has to do is look at the cover art to know this is going to be a fun week of reading:
Classic, famous image of Mr. Lincoln… splattered with blood and… what’s that behind his back?
Ah…. looks like someone’s been busy.
Hopefully this will prove to be a fun book to lift us out of the drudgery of last week’s reading! I’ve been anxious to throw something less serious into our book selection, and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” should be the perfect way to put us into the Halloween Spirit, but not give us nightmares!
So get to the library or used book store, or download the ebook, and let’s get reading!
