The Outlander Reading Challenge

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Okay, I am going to attempt to do the Outlander Reading Challenge. I've only heard a million times that this series are the best books ever. I started to do a read-a-long on paperbackswap sometime last year but got about halfway through and for whatever reason never got any further. So I'm going to try this again, though I'm not going to pressure myself too much. Haven't decided yet if I'm going to start all over or pick up from where I'm already at. We'll see how far I get!

Here are the rules:

1. Anytime between Nov. 17th, 2009, and Nov. 17th, 2010, read the entire Outlander series. ((You do not have to start on Nov. 17th you can start the challenge anytime in the course of the challenge you like there is not any right or wrong way to do it.)) Read Outlander through the latest book An Echo in the Bone. (Any format is acceptable - be it paperback, hardback, ebook format, or audio *the unabridged audio is best as you will miss a LOT of the stories if you get the abridged versions, but is not strictly required*.

**There is also a companion book to the series called The Outlandish Companion this is a fun and informative look at the series, but is NOT required to be read for this challenge. However if you would like to add it to your list feel more than free to do so. It is a lot of fun and there are a lot of things that Diana explains in it from her point of view think of it as a behind the scenes look at the series.**

2. Sign up here by leaving a comment to this post telling me that you would like to join. Please include your blog address as well if you would like to blog about the challenge, so that I can link to your posts. *Please note that you do not have to have a blog or website to participate.*

3. Come back and leave a post at the seperate book posts here *see the list on the right side of the blog here there is one for each book* and I will link your progress and your posts to the books as you complete each one.

4. Enjoy yourself don't stress and have fun with it! That's all there is to it now see that was pretty painless wasn't it. :)

I'm impressed. I've read the first one so long ago. These are books I really have to be in the right mood for. I really liked the first one but it took me awhile!

Good luck!

I loved the first one, but after about book three my interest tapered off. The first one was really good though.

I am one of those annoying people that won't shut up about this series. Other than Echo (which stunk in my opinion) the entire series remains my MOST FAV of ALL time. I have re-read the series twice and about to start my third re-read of them. I hope you like them! To me they are the best escape reading with a bit of a backbone, if you get my meaning. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the books!
