I'm a little late in joining up, but for those of you that haven't heard of this challenge already, join the 2009 Outlander Challenge, which is a way to be sure you've read all of Diana Gabaldon's books in her Outlander series before the 7th book in the series, An Echo in the Bone comes out (hopefully) in Fall, 2009.
Join up here and leave a comment to let Michele, from A Reader's Respite know you are joining.
I hesitated about joining up myself, since I already listen to the unabridged recordings of the books (Davina Porter is Claire) in one never ending gigantic loop. I felt funny about joining a challenge of something I do anyway every day of my life! I have all the CD's and listen to them in my car. I've been doing this ever since I finished ABOSAA (Sept. 2005). At first, I got the recordings on cassette from my town library (they'd order them for me via interlibrary loan) and then I broke down and just bought them all myself since I wanted to continue listening to them over and over. I think I've gone through the whole loop about 3 or 4 times. I cannot recommend them enough! But, remember only get the unabridged recordings, the abridged recordings cannot even begin to cover the real thing.
Anyway, I'm starting over from scratch and popping the first of my Outlander CD's into my car tomorrow (today we're completely iced over and I will not be doing any driving, much less getting the car door open!) en route to my office and back.
Happy reading (or listening, as in my case)!
