The Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge

sookiechallenge Yes, it’s lunacy. I don’t have any excuse for signing up for yet another reading challenge, except that I’ve been wanting to read the Sookie Stackhouse series for a while now. So when Beth Fish Reads announced the Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge, I knew I just had to join in on the fun.

Here are the rules: Between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2010, catch up on Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire series. No matter if you’re starting with book 1 or book 8, you have a year to read all about Sookie. Read Sookie in print, listen to the audio, read an eBook — format is not an issue.

The books in the series are:

Dead Until Dark
Living Dead in Dallas
Club Dead
Dead to the World
Dead as a Doornail
Definitely Dead
All Together Dead
From Dead to Worse
Dead and Gone

I was assured by a few people on Twitter last night that these books are fast, fun reads. So I’m really looking forward to this. And here’s a bonus: Melissa’s Bookshelf has a giveaway of the boxed set containing the first seven books in the series! The giveaway ends July 5, and it’s open worldwide. Very nice!

Interested in doing the challenge with me? Hop on over to the official challenge sign-up post and add your name to Mr. Linky. In July, Beth F. will put up another post where you can go to link to your reviews and keep track of your progress.

    Beth F., I’m glad you came up with the idea for this challenge! It’s exactly what I needed to get to the series. We’re probably going to pick up Season 1 of True Blood for our holidays, so the timing couldn’t be better. And it will be so much fun to talk Sookie on Twitter!

    Ann-Kat, it would be so much fun if you joined in.

    Kathy, thanks!

    YAY! I’m in on this challenge as well. I’ve already read book one and two and have the rest on hand. I’m hopeful that I can get the remaining read in the course of a year, LOL.
