The Friday 56 - 11 Sept 2009

The Rules:

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

The book closest to me is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon:

“Feisty wee bitch, is she no?” said my patient, sounding amused.

I’m re-reading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon to prepare for the issue of the latest: An Echo in the Bone on 22 September 2009. Her last novel in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, was released in 2006, and it was intimated at the time, was the last of the series. Happily not, and it looks like we’ll have more to look forward to in the adventures of Jaime and Claire in the future, per Diana’s FAQ.

FYI, if you aren’t familiar with the series, here is the complete list:

Outlander (also titled Cross Stitch) - 1991

Dragonfly in Amber - 1992

Voyager - 1993

Drums of Autumn - 1996

The Fiery Cross - 2001

A Breath of Snow and Ashes – 2006

An Echo in the Bone – 2009 (to be released 22 September 2009)

Thanks for stopping by today.

I've mine on reserve for me so as soon as I get off work on the 22nd I'm dashing over to pick it up!

hahaha! Most everyone's quotes this week were hilarious, unlike mine! I'm glad I convinced you to pick up my book, maybe I should try yours ! I'll look into what it's about.

I pre-ordered from Amazon - I won't get it on the 22nd, but that's OK - I'll have it within a few days.

Glad you could interpret the words you weren't familiar with Nita - yes, thank goodness for Google, just like having your own reference library, don't know where I'd be without it!!!

Woohoo! I didn't know there was another one coming out. I'm in the middle of Drums of Autumn right now ;)
