Ok, Zombies TOTALLY freak me out and I almost didn’t click to see what this challenge was even, but I did so here we are. A cool way to think about books from our Read-a-Thon co-host April, thank you!! Check out the mini-challenge here: http://www.myshelfconfessions.com/posts/wwrat-challenge-zombie-apocalypse/. It goes until 10 p.m.EST today (Sunday).
In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse you are forced to take shelter with family and/or friends for a period of no less than 5 years. You have time to pack some supplies and some extra things to keep yourself entertained. However, since there will be many people sharing the same space, space will be limited and you are told you are only allowed to bring up to 5 books.
What books would you pack to sustain you? If you want to go a step further you can give a reason why you would choose the books you chose.
Please answer the challenge in the comments – even if you answer them on your blog too, please leave the 5 books you would choose in the comment section and feel free to ALSO link your blog post.
We couldn’t decide as a family 5 books total. A big argument ensued and everyone wanted to just die and let the zombies take them instead of choosing together. NO, really. It was a big deal. So we are doing five each.
