I'm waiting for it, I've got it on hold at the library. Unfortunately it's going to be a while before I get my hands on a copy. I'm number 200 something on the waiting list:sad:

Aslan, its...WOW, when you read it I WANT to talk about it, there soooo much to talk about!!

Ownedbycats. I know its a relatively new book, but check the used book stores frequently. I would send it your way....but I have a serious problem giving books away lol, it will be gone, and then I want really badly to read it again lol.

Have either of you read the exerpts off her site? www.dianagabaldon.com

Im SO excited for the next one, I hope it comes sooner than it too this one to come out, A Breath Of Snow And Ashes could have been the end of the series, this one DEFFINATELY cant lol. she said shes going to write another one

i'll probably grab it by this weekend, i can always send it your way OBC. I have A Breathe of snow and ashes i keep meaning to send it to Breeze.:sad: I keep forgetting. I find Diana Gabaldon is like Patricia Cornwell,I just can't wait for the next one.

Lyrical, that's a good idea, I'll wait a week or two though, give them a chance to get a couple copies in.. I know exactly what you mean. My book collection just keeps growing. Lending, sure, giving away permanently? i just KNOW I'm going to want to reread it. No, I haven't visited her site for the excerpts, I find it frustrating to get part way into the story and then have to stop. I do go and read some fo the additional information after I've read teh book though.
