I loved the show but have a feeling the books are gonna be some sort of romance novel set around vampires, not that the show is that much different.
But I know the books are a series and I dont think they are stand alone. So I would just pick up the paperback box set, its about the cost of 2 hardback books
Sookie Stackhouse Box Set (Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series), Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Charlaine Harris, Book - Barnes & Noble
You old avatar was much cooler, with everyone changing I think I will have to change mine.
