In Death Reading Challenge

I've been slowly working my way through the "in Death" series by J. D. Robb for a while now. To help me (and all those other challenge addicts out there), Christine at The happily ever after... has decided to host a perpetual challenge to get those books read!

Here are the rules from Christine's blog:

1. Anyone can join at any time.
2. Read one 'In Death' book by J.D. Robb per month, starting in January 2010 until you're caught up in the series. 
3. To join, make a post on your blog about the challenge where you will keep a running list of the books that you'll edit as you go along. (See my own entry post HERE as an example). Once you've made your entry post, come back to this post and enter the link to your entry post in Mr.Linky below.
4. If you don't have a blog and you'd like to join the challenge, you can come back here and leave a comment as you read the books, or at the monthly 'In Death' Challenge post that I'll make on or around the last day of each month.
5. Reviews are optional. I will make a post on or around the last day of each month with a Mr.Linky for you to link any reviews or commentary from your blog so that we can find each other's posts easily and engage in some dialogue about the books.
6. If you miss a month, don't stress over it. This is all for fun and camaraderie! To motivate everyone from stay on track, however, I plan on awarding prizes at regular intervals (maybe every four months) to a randomly selected participant who has stayed on schedule for that time period.
7. Feel free to grab the 'In Death' Reading Challenge button on my sidebar for your blog.
8. Have fun!

Hi Kristi!
Thanks so much for joining the challenge! It's good to see I've not only inspired some to start this series for the first time, but also inspired some like you, to pick up where you left off somewhere in the middle of the series too!

I'm currently reading CEREMONY IN DEATH, the fifth book. I don't think I'll ever tire of reading these books! Which is good, because I've got a lot of reading ahead of me!

Happy reading! :)
