Just chiming in here: you guys are going to love this book. I'm on book 7 of the series, and I'm painfully aware of being close to the end of the series (8 books so far). Number 9 is due out in May, I believe. Have fun with the discussions--I might pop in and add my 2 cents, although I'll be careful to not spoil anything that happens further in the series, naturally.

My DH has read them as well. For a few days we were trying to read from the same paperback.  ::)

In a different thread, someone just emailed a sample to her mother on the same account.  I think Leslie is testing to see if you can email one to someone not on the same account.  Maybe we can get a sample to you.   :)

Yes, we tested it. Heather sent me 3 samples. I saved the attachments and transferred to my Kindle, no problem.

Anju, if you want me to send you a sample or two, I'd be happy to. PM with your email address and the samples you want.

I've put a sticky dedicated thread in TTT where people can meet up to trade samples!

Enjoy!

I'm new here, so I'm not sure how to join the klub!  I have read all 8 Sookie books and love them!  Can't wait to do a book klub with them-can anyone give me clues on how it works?  Thanks! D

I'm going to try to add this one to my klub list  ;)

I think it would be a great idea if we post in the "email sample" thread whether or not we need samples or are willing to email samples to those who need them. Maybe one of the mods can pair people up...sort of a "pen pal" system so no one is inundated with sample requests and those asking aren't doubling up by accident. Just a suggestion  :)

There is such a thread stickied to the top of Tips Tricks and Troubleshooting.  Post there and pair yourselves up -- I'm no good at matchmaking so I'll stay out of that part!  :)

Leslie has posted a quick' step by step' and she and luv4 said it worked just great.

Have at it.

Not particularly a vampire reader, but then i tried to read Anne Rice's books and never could get into them, they were "dumb" - is this any better?  Worth paying for it?

Howdy!  I couldn't get into Anne Rice either, but I didn't think her books were "dumb" so much as "boring".  Too each his own, I suppose.  But, the Sookie books are way different, imo.  lol, but then, since I volunteered to run this discussion, I'm hardly very objective about it!  My opinion is that the Sookie books are more interesting than the Anne Rice books, and less disturbingly sexual than the Laurell Hamilton Anita Blake series.   Also, I manage the gas supply for a power plant in that area, so I'm already partial to Sookie, living in the South.  I think you'll enjoy the book.  But if you don't enjoy it, please bear in mind that the rules of the book klub specifically prohibit killing the leader of the book klub with a stick.

Betsy, can I tell them about the surprise we're going to try for the Dead Until Dark book club?  Please?  How about now?

Count me in! I just lent the DTV set I had to my daughter a couple weeks ago. I will ask her when I can get the first one back as my Kindle-to-be has not yet even started thinking about being shipped. That will make three DT versions with post-its to simulate highlighting, bookmarks, etc. to simulate Kindle functions.  ;)

I'm also going to try to join in on this klub too.  I'm doing outlander and whiskey rebels but since I already read this book, it might not be that hard to keep out with.  We will see.

Go for it, girl!

!!!!!!!

I am so excited!  For everyone that's going to try this book klub with me, we have what I hope will be a totally cool surprise:

Betsy's going to let us do live chat for the Dead Until Dark book klub!!!  How cool is that?!  Never fear, I will be posting the questions in a forum just like the Outlander klub, so you can still join in the discussion.  But, if you want to discuss the book in real time, we're going to have a weekly party in chat.  I'll be posting schedules, details, and rules in a couple of days, but don't worry:  the rules are nothing terribly serious.  Just some etiquette things to keep the chat from breaking into total free-for-all.  And here I'm keeping the shower scene in book three in mind.

I'll bring the margaritas, who's in for chips and Type O salsa?
