"I don't read vampire books."
– a frequent lamentation of some readers on the interwebs
|Should you not choose a book just because it has a vampire in it?|

|Dracula – the original vampire story|
"... my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall over that dreadful abyss, face down, with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings."Dracula is an eminent example of scary anticipation!
Now, it's certainly not my intention to suggest that people can't have preferences when it comes to choosing books. My whole point is simply not to close one's mind to a book based on one element. It has been the call of many a wise person to "read widely" and that is certainly a valuable mantra to live (and read) by.
|So glad I decided to ignore my zombie 'prejudice' and watch|
The Walking Dead
|Fevre Dream by George RR Martin|
It's on my to read list
Still not convinced? Imagine not watching Buffy just because you don't like vampire stories. Need I say more?
