Another Challenge!

June 21, 2009

Sookie Stackhouse challenge

Since I’ve already broken my no challenges resolution, I decided to take the plunge and join another one.  I blame Booking Mama for this one – she’s assured me it will be great fun!  Here are the rules and the books for this challenge:

The Rules:

1. 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.

2. Sign up using Mr. Linky. Put your name in the top box. For the bottom box, please use the URL that links specifically to your blog post about this challenge, not to your blog’s home page.

3. After July 4, I’ll create a post with another Mr. Linky where you can link your reviews so everyone can read them track your progress.

4. If you don’t have a blog and want to join in, sign up in the comments here. Later, let us know about your progress by leaving comments on the review link page.

The Books:

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

Wish me luck!

    Good luck on the challenge. I keep seeing all my new blogging friends joining, I think I might jump on board with you all too.

    So happy you caved!! It’s going to be fun!

    Good luck with this one. I’ve got too many going right now, but have fun!

    Since I’ve already read the first in the series and have the next three at home waiting on my shelf, I am joining this one as well, although I have not been the best challenge-gal this year so far 😉

    That peer pressure from the twitter folks was tough to resist, huh? I caved even before you did, but I haven’t posted it on my blog yet.

    I need to get my post sometime this week.

    I really think it’s going to be fun. I have enough folks who I know share my reading tastes who have enjoyed the books that I’m not too worried.

    I know I’m going to end up signing up for this, especially since I’m already planning to read them anyway. LOL… More things to say, “Oh, I’m gonna blog that,” along with about 10-15 other “great bloggie thoughts”

    Good luck! I hear these are really great!


  10. June 21, 2009 12:25 pm

    Good luck with the challenge! I have been joining a lot of challenges too – they’re just too much fun to pass up!

  11. June 21, 2009 12:56 pm

    Woooooo! Score one for peer pressure!

  12. June 21, 2009 12:59 pm

    You just reminded me that I must do my post for this challenge. Glad you’re joining in. I’ve got to go check which of the books I have and see what I need to get.

  13. June 21, 2009 1:54 pm

    Good luck with your challenge. I really don’t know these books, so I am not sure if they are for me.

  14. June 21, 2009 2:24 pm

    Good luck with the challenge! I’m going to check it out! By the way, Happy Fathers Day to your hubby!

  15. June 21, 2009 2:41 pm

    Oh yes, this is one that is too good to pass up!

  16. June 21, 2009 7:28 pm

    All I did was start a little peer pressure on twitter! I’m hoping that it’s going to be fun!

  17. June 21, 2009 9:26 pm

    Oh, no – oh, no – I’m caving…..

  18. June 21, 2009 10:05 pm

    This one is very tempting!! Especially because I have had book 1 for over a year ….should I join or not? dilemmas 🙂

  19. June 21, 2009 10:17 pm

    Good luck, Kathy! I’ll be signing up for this one too. 🙂

  20. June 22, 2009 12:05 am

    Good luck again. I tried reading these last year and I couldn’t get through the first book. It just wasn’t for me but so many people love this series.

  21. June 22, 2009 10:56 am

    Whohooo!! I’m glad you’re joining us in the Challenge!!

  22. June 22, 2009 11:00 am

    It’ll be a ton of fun. I’m really looking forward to getting into the rest of the series myself. Good luck, Kathy!

    Good luck on the challenge. I am still on the fence with this one.

  24. June 22, 2009 1:05 pm

    I am THIS CLOSE to joining this one myself!

  25. June 22, 2009 3:30 pm

    This will be a fun one for you! I wish I were starting from the beginning.

  26. June 22, 2009 8:17 pm

    Yay!! I’m so glad you’re joining us!

  27. June 23, 2009 11:07 am

    don’t you love when peer pressure wins out. I signed up for this reading challenge as well.

  28. June 23, 2009 3:32 pm

    Good luck with the challenge! The Sookie books are such fun, I’ve read the first few but then fell behind – this challenge sounds perfect for me to re-read and get caught back up 🙂

    I just signed up for this contest too — it’s my new guilty pleasure! Pure entertainment. I’m glad to see you’re there too…now we know all the cool kids are doing it.
