We interrupt the True Blood spoiler juggernaut to bring you some love for Book Eric – from a most unlikely source.
The Huffington Post recently asked their readers to tell them which book characters made their most do-able list.
Guess who came in at #3 in their Top Ten?

With just nine days until the premiere of the new season, we thought it might be fun to prime ourselves with some “fourplay” to make this torturous wait a little easier. We’ll bring you a new post every day until June 26th, so make sure you check in.
Could there possibly be a more appropriate way to kick off the countdown than a look back at our favorite shipper moments from the book that will inspire season 4 – Dead to the World?
But first, a small disclaimer. We don’t actually expect to SEE any of this – we gave up our ridiculous sense of book entitlement long ago. But it’s fun to speculate, and to remember why Dead to the World is one of the most popular books in the Sookie Stackhouse series to date.
So without further preamble, here are ten of the best Sookie and Eric moments from Dead to the World…in no particular order.
Sookie and Eric’s Fireside Chat
“Where is this Bill?”
“He’s in Peru.”
“Did he tell you he was going?”
“Am I to assume that your relationship with him has waned?”
That was a pretty nice way to put it. “We’ve been on the outs. It’s beginning to look permanent,” I said, my voice even.
He was on his stomach beside me now, propped up on his elbows so we could talk. He was a little closer than I was comfortable with, but I didn’t want to make a big issue out of scooting over. He half turned to toss the quilt over both of us.
“Tell me about him,” Eric said unexpectedly.
Why we love it: Sookie’s quiet chat with Eric by the fire on the second night of his stay is the first of many intimate conversations between them over the course of the series. This scene with Amnesia Eric is reminiscent of similar talks we will later eavesdrop on in Dead and Gone, Dead in the Family and Dead Reckoning. It’s often said that Sookie and Eric don’t communicate well in the books and to some extent, this is true. But when the planets align and they do find themselves in the right headspace to talk, there is an intimacy, honesty and depth to their conversations that we never see her share with Bill or Quinn. Sookie often comments on how much she enjoys these conversations, and how much she values Eric’s ability to really listen to her.
