This week is fun and easy. Today we are unveiling John's Zombies vs Mummies display at the BPL. So my question for the Monday Discussion is, which do you prefer? Mummies or Zombies? Why? Discuss.
Please feel free to add your favorite mummy or zombie book to the discussion too.
I refuse to pick sides as it may damage my horror maven status, but you can click here for a horror related surprise from me.
And if you can't make it to the BPL, here is the list:
