I always date my "OUTLANDER anniversary" from my birthday, because I originally bought OUTLANDER in 2006 with a gift card my mom had given me for my birthday. I've always thought it was very funny that I got addicted to Diana Gabaldon's books without spending a penny of my own money. <g>
(The story of how I found OUTLANDER is here, if you haven't seen it before.)
Seven years ago, I picked up OUTLANDER in the bookstore, knowing nothing whatever about it in advance, and my life changed forever, in more ways than I can count. It's been an amazing, wonderful roller-coaster ride, and I'm glad I've been able to share it with so many of you.
Seven years. I have been thinking about that this week, remembering Jamie's seven years in the cave, and reflecting that even though seven years seems like a long time, it also passes in the blink of an eye.
