Congratulations Charlaine Harris on #1 NYT Bestseller list. This helps every other author of fantstical fiction. Thanks to Suzanne McLead for the contest. I have the e-book & am reading Dead & Gone already but my 66-yr-old mother reads "real books" and I'd love to get it for her. (Yes, she's read the Sookie series!) :)
