dead in dixie

Dead in Dixie was the name of the book I just finished reading, but this book actually contained the first three books in the Sookie Stackhouse series (the series upon which True Blood is based): Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, and Club Dead.

While it has been documented that I do not enjoy reading a book after seeing a movie (or tv show in this case) upon which it was based, I did rather enjoy these stories. I've only seen the first two seasons of True Blood, which corresponded to the first two "books", but there was enough of a difference between the two storylines to make it interesting to read after the fact--some things were followed exactly, other things were not even in the books.

In the long run, I think I'm going to enjoy the books more than the show, but I guess that should not be surprising.
