Checklist for People That Don’t Suck

In the middle of March while out for my sister’s birthday we were talking books. We were also discussing good books to read. I recommended some books for their niece that were right along the Twilight fix she was needing, and some for my sister. In the midst of talking books more often at family gatherings I have found out that my brother-in-law (who has to give up his geek union card over this) had no idea who Neil Gaiman is! It is for these reasons and so many others I am mimicking Mark Henry’s “Shopping List for People Who Don’t Suck” and making them full blown checklists.

At some point in the future I might expound on each of them as I have time, making them blog posts of their own, but for now, here is the checklists of books that are Zombie Joe approved.
