Later this week I am planning to share my story about the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon, in conjunction with a review of An Echo in the Bone, the Outlander book that came out last year and I am only just getting to read now!
These books were influential in getting me back to reading, and you don't have to search too hard for other Outlander fans. I even managed to get one of my train friends to read the books, and somewhat to my shame, she has just finished reading this book before me!
As I mentioned, you don't have to look to hard to find other fans - Carolyn Crane has just done a really fun post titled "Why aren't men like Jamie Fraser?".
Can I say how much I love our cover of this book, especially compared to the lime green number that is gracing the paperback version! In real life it is a gorgeous purply/bluey colour, which is even better because it matches my clothes, my pyjamas, my purse! So much purple! What will I do when it is no longer in fashion!
