For those of you who are looking for an excuse to re-read the OUTLANDER books <g>.....



OUTLANDER Reading Challenge 2011 - sponsored by TheLitBitch

The rules, from the post above:
  • Timeline: 01 Jan 2011 - 31 Dec 2011 (SIGN UP ANYTIME BETWEEN NOW AND THEN!!)
  • Rules -- Read all SEVEN (7) books in the Outlander Series
  • The reading challenge can crossover into other challenges

By the way, I asked about audiobooks and was assured that the unabridged audiobooks do indeed count toward this challenge!

I'm not affiliated with the above site in any way at all, just happened to stumble across this tonight and thought some of you might be interested. <g> Good luck!

Karen, I started my reread with Carol on MOP and am half way thru Echo. Start over again????....OK.

Is there any reward if you DO read all books again? Cause all 7 books are fresh in my mind.

LOL! You can do what many of us do, and just start over with OUTLANDER when you finish the series! I'm partway through a re-listen of DRAGONFLY at the moment, myself.

As for this challenge, it only says read all 7 books by the end of the year. It doesn't say you have to stop where you are in the re-read and start over!

Personally, I think it might take Carol most of the year to do a re-read of the whole series. :-) Considering that it took her what, 8 or 9 months to read the books the first time? But I really don't mean that in a negative way. It takes me a full year to get through all the OUTLANDER + LJ audiobooks. I started over with OUTLANDER in mid-December.

Only the usual....the reward of immersing yourself in a wonderful story, revisiting familiar characters, etc. :-) I've participated in a number of these reading challenges before, and they're meant just for fun.

Hah! I started re-reading these in July or so...I'm busy with school but I JUST finished Echo in the Bone (first time reading!) a few weeks ago.

I'm all too happy to start again!

Sincerely, an addict.

Welcome to the club (of OUTLANDER-addicts, that is!) I'm glad this challenge came along at a convenient time for you!

You'll be amazed at the number of things you pick up on re-reading, that you never would have noticed the first time, no matter how slowly or how carefully you read.

I reread all seven from October 2009 to April 2010. Not sure I'm ready to start again. But I will reread them all again before the next installment releases!
