No kidding, the only bad thing about a great series is waiting for the next book. I hope to finish Voyager this weekend so that I can get started on the next one. Does anyone know if the new book will be an end to the series?
I think I read somewhere that she was planning on ending the series in the 1800's and Voyager seems to be moving on to the New World.
I'm hoping this isn't the last book, although all good things must come to an end eventually.
I'm beginning to think again of getting this series in dead tree version as well as the Kindle version. There was a discussion at 2 Kindle groups about Licencing agreements - about having to re-buy books after you download it to 6 Kindles/ Ipods. If I have to re-buy books, only those special ones, like this series, then I may as well buy the dead tree version as well & have something permanent. Right?
I was looking at this in the store and it doesn't have a pre-order edition for Kindle, but it has the "I want this on kindle" link. I've only just finished the first book, but I'm hooked and I'm sure I will be ready for this on by then. I read "Outlander" in less than three days.
Glad we've got you hooked on our beloved Jamie and Claire. When you catch up, join our book klub. We'll be reading the last section of Dragonfly in Amber this week and discussing it the week after. We'll start reading Voyager the week of April 20. I don't know about anybody else, but I need to catch my breath after riding a Gabaldon roller coaster.
***Gertie, sorry that the ring didn't fit you. i hope the next size fits. Let us know how it fits.
I'll take it to the jewelers when I get back from vacation. I'll let you know.
***I don't have any of the paper books, but when a friend lent me her paperbacks, (which I returned), I was so used to reading on my Sony ereader, that the font size of paperback books seemed small. I am thinking that if the hardcovers are available, that I should get the hardcovers, since the font size would be larger.
I'm getting the new one in hardback to complete my collection, but I'm dreading picking up the ton of bricks I know it's going to be. Maybe I'll get the HB for my shelves, and then read it on Little Gertie. That'll kill my entire September budget.
So, you and your computer both got infected today? Hope both your knee and your computer get disinfected quickly.
We used to have Symantec/Norton at work and it did the job. I have Macafee at home because that's what came with my Dell. I'm not very happy with it.
Last year, I got a massive virus that took me three months to clear up. I had to use two other programs, besides Macafee, and my computer has never been the same.
Now, Macafee runs frequently and keeps me from getting on the Internet or running any programs. They have a solution and it's only going to cost me $49. On top of which, their website wouldn't accept my change of address.
Well, that's what the company pays tech people for. And it was all better when I got back from my days off. Knee is is still icky and hurts.
This morning I was reading "Voyager" and I was getting to the part where Claire
is about to step through the stones,
I hear what I thought was gunfire. Then I saw the flash of an explosion through the window.
Of course, my journalist self had to investigate. A car had exploded and was burning in the parking lot. Wasn't mine or close to it thankfully. So, I grabbed my press badge and got to to snapping and asking.
Needless to say, between being keyed up over the book and the explosion, I haven't slept much today.
Knowing how the stones sound, you probably thought for a wild moment that you were hearing the stones. Congrats on your byline and photo credit. So many good things come from knowing Jamie and Claire, don't they.
Ring? There's a ring? Why am I the last to know these things
I'll be getting the DTV so I can share with my family and also adding to my kindle.
Wow a car explosion?! how did that happen Nessabug? At an apartment complex I lived in several years ago. someone firebombed a car in our lot. It burned so hot it melted several cars next to it and parked across from it. I was lucky mine was a lot further away. Thank God no one was in the car at the time.
I love the ring. When I get back from vacation, I'm going to get it resized so I can wear it. I think the website is theauthorsattic.com. If that's not it, you can search for Claire's ring and you'll find it. They also have Briana's bracelet and Jamie's running stag brooch.
It's 870 pages in hardcover. We might as well read 150-200 pages a week, considering how fast you guys are ripping through the series. I'll be posting the first section tomorrow night. Sorry I have to be a little late, but I just got back from vacation tonight. You know how that is. Unpacking, laundry, replenishing food, etc.
I have an obligation to my fellow Outlanders. And if you don't believe that one, I can come up with any number of other excuses.
I had a fantastic time, thank you. Great party for my father at my cousin's restaurant. Lots of fun times with another cousin's grandkids. Saw people I hadn't seen in 20 years. April has been my month for reunions.
$16.50 is the K version price. Unfortunately. I won't pay that much for it. I tried to track it, but it wouldn't track, probably because it's the pre-order price. I'll wait a week and see what happens.
I think the HC price is $17.64. I was going to get the HC too since I have all the others in HC, but The Fiery Cross is falling apart and I probably will never even crack open one of them again. The Kindle is just too easy to read.
None of us want to spend $16.50, so yes, we'll be delaying the book klub until it goes down some. Not too long, though. I'll wait a week to see what happens and then go ahead with it. That doesn't mean every one who wants to discuss has to pay the higher price. Just jump in when you are ready.
We'll be doing it a bit differently. As soon as I get the book, I'm going to set up a thread for each "part" so that everyone can discuss at their own pace. It will be open discussion with no formal questions.
Right now, we're on ABOSAA and I'm doing it one part at a time. I'm posting the questions as I finish reading the part, so it might be a week or only a day or two between discussions. Everyone (including me) is going at their own pace.
Thanks so much, Gertie, for thinking about waiting until the price for Echo comes down a bit. I haven't been posting, but am still reading along with all of you. I also had made up my mind not to spend more than $9.99 for it..... less would be even better but I'm not holding my breath. I have timed it so that I'll have enough left on a gift card from my son to buy Echo.... if the price is right.
I don't think any of us want to spend $16.50. That's only about $1 less than the HC.
I think we need to start clicking for the K-version, since it's been taken down.
I've decided to try to not rush through Echo.... since we know we'll have a long time until #8 comes out. It's just so hard to put these books down.... unless there's a "difficult" part that I have to take my time with. Hard to read with tears in your eyes..... When the series is over.... I'll just have to keep re-reading them. I can't imagine not having Claire and Jamie "around".
Harvey has set up a sub-forum for the Echo discussion. I started a poll to get everyone's opinions in one place so we can decide when to start the Klub. Whether or not you plan on joining the discussion, I would appreciate it if you would respond to the poll. I know many of you prefer just to read along with the discussion, and I want to include you in the decision.
