Day 78 Vampire Fad

Vampire fiction is in at the moment.
The Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer has reignited an interest in this genre. It has always had its followers but it's popularity comes and goes. I for one loved Buffy the vampire slayer (I know it was a TV show) and there were many books before Twilight that were great vampire stories and well written. It's a bit like Harry Potter, there were many excellent fantasy books before Harry Potter that had enjoyed succes. But Harry Potter and Twilight seemed to be in the right place at the right time and have enjoyed a huge success and a fanatical following.
So at work I have been working on a publishing a reading list called Books to sink your teeth into.. . It lists our fiction about vampires, demons, ghosts and the supernatural to introduce the boys to other authors especially if they have already read the Twilight series. Those that haven't will probably have a sister who has or perhaps they have been to the cinema to see the Twilight movie. Today I finished it and put a display up about our Fang Fiction and Ghosts, demons and the supernatural and this is a photo of it.
