It’s only 175 pages, does that count?

I know I said I was going to stick to my reading list and only use alternates when I came across something that was boring, but a friend gave me a copy of “How to Survive a Horror Movie” by Seth Grahme-Smith and I couldn’t resist. The premise of the book is a breakdown of every¬†kind of horror movie scenario and what one needs to do to ensure they’re one of the ones to survive for the inevitable sequel.

It covers everything from alien invasion, vampire attacks, zombies, slashers, possessed dogs, a-typically killer dogs (and sharks and birds and cats) as well as your sinister cornfields and haunted houses. This is essential reading for anyone who loves a good fright at the box office (and I’m not talking about the Spice Girls Movie).

So, my question is, having wandered from my book list, just¬† teeny tiny bit, does this count as an alternate or since it’s camp and a bit of a giggle, can I slide it under the radar?
