Did you read any In Death series books this month?

Link up any In Death posts you made this month here. If you made a post on your blog, whether it be a review or commentary, please grab the link to your post and enter in the Mr. Linky below along with your name so we can find each other's latest In Death posts easily. You can also just use the link to your goodreads or other virtual bookshelf as well.

I didn't make it in time this month. I'm in the middle of reading Creation in Death right now and will probably finish it tomorrow. This one started out a little slow for me, but once Eve and her team got hot on the trail of the killer, the pace picked up and now I don't want to put it down.

Last week I spied a pristine hard cover copy of the recently released Celebrity in Death on the used book sale shelf at my library for only $5, but alas I had no cash on me! I toyed with asking the librarians to hold it for me until the morning, but ended up not doing anything. I didn't even go back the next day with $5. If it's there the next time I go, I'll buy it. If not, I figure by the time I'm ready to read that one it will be out in paperback anyway and maybe I'll even find a used copy somewhere just as cheap or cheaper. Most of my In Death collection are used books.

This got me wondering what format of In Death books do you read?

Do you own the whole series? 

Does your collection consist of paperbacks? Hardcover? E-book? A mixture?

Do you borrow the books from the library?


  1. I own the whole series, including the short stories in their respective anthologies--I'm compulsive about owning all the books/novellas in a series I'm reading. This is truer when it's a series I'm following as it releases (right now, that's only the In Death and the Psy/Changeling series--I'm a book or so behind, or can wait a few days/a week after release for most other series I follow)

    And I read Celebrity in Death in one sitting, as soon as I got my dirty little mittens on it :grin: It's good!

  2. I don't own the entire series, just the first seven and those only in paperback. I have read the rest of the series in either paperback or hardback- from the library.

    Hope your week is going well!

  3. You're still going!!
    That's awesome!

    Good luck! I'm sitting this series out because it's just too long, lol, for my tastes, I don't like super long series :P

  4. I didn't finish my latest ID book either. I read them in mass market paperbacks (but I think one of them is Uk print version, found from a used bookstore). I own all books that I have read so far, except those novellas (which I have borrowed from a friend).

  5. You're rocketing through the series :)
