I just barely completed this on before the deadline.
Beth Fish Reads hosted The Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge and it was a lot of fun.
The Rules and time frame were fairly easy to work with:
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 (links are to my reviews):
When this challenge was announced I jumped on it because I’d been wanting to read the series anyway and it gave me a good reason to plow through them fairly quickly. I spaced the books out fairly evenly but still had to rush a bit at the end.
All in all it’s been a fun series, and I’m glad I finished the first 9 before the end of the challenge, but after reading the last three fairly close together I’ll probably let the next book languish at the bookstore for a while before I buy it. I’m perfectly happy to wait for the paperback. I don’t normally read a series too close together because it tends to tire me of the sameness. I did OK with this series and do plan to continue, but . . . later.
