New Sookie Stackhouse

Amazon’s list of “Popular Pre-Orders” is a good indicator of books that are “highly anticipated” (which is why we link to it, under “Books Coming Next Month,” to the right).

The current list is dominated by titles coming out in January and February, but at #9 is a book that won’t be out until May, Charlaine Harris’s 9th title in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead and Gone. Hennepin is one of the few libraries that has it on order. At this point, they are showing 83 holds on 16 copies.

On her Web site, Harris says she is not finished with the series and doesn’t know how many more there will be.

HBO’s True Blood series brought the books back to bestseller lists this year. The series was recently received two Golden Globe nominations,  for best dramatic series and for best actress (Anna Paquin). True Blood will return for a second season this coming summer.
