A note from the Coordinator . . .

Before you yawn from boredom, let me assure you that this note will be brief. We are in the fourth month of our "10 books in 10 months" reading program; and the fourth Sookie Stackhouse title is Dead to the World, my personal favorite. Of all the titles in the series, Dead to the World is my absolute favorite.

Perhaps it is because there is definitely more of Eric to love in this novel, and we all LOVE Eric. Perhaps it is because the fourth novel finally firmly establishes some story lines for us, the devoted readers of Sookie and her story; and perhaps, I'm just crazy enough to admit that Book 4 really tipped the scales in favor of the series for me. I thoroughly enjoyed books 1-3, but book 4--Dead to the World--is what sealed the deal for me. After I finished reading book 4, there was no going back. I couldn't quit--I had to know how this story ended . . .

I know that some of you probably have blazed through all 10 books by now. Thank you for reading! And for those of you who are keeping pace with the monthly schedule, wow! I am thoroughly impressed with your fortitude!

I can let all of you know that we will be releasing the date of Charlaine Harris's appearance soon . . . NOT next week, but during the summer (and that IS soon!). So, please be patient for a little while longer, enjoy reading the books . . . AND keep watching the blog for a date to appear or get thee to thy local library and check out the posters on a regular basis for an announcement!

  1. I've been reading the Southern Vampire series for several years now, and since book 3, have awaited each with great anticipation. I'm finishing up "Dead in the Family" (book 10) now, and cannot wait to meet my favorite author next month!!
