I found "Outlander" after it came out in paper back in the book section at Wal-Mart. It's the only one that I don't have a first edition hard back copy of, sadly.

My sister gave me my first copy. I spent the rest of of that spring immersed in all things "Outlandish" reading all the books published to that point. Now, alas, I have to wait like everyone else.
