What’s the title? Who wrote it?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
How’d you read it?
Why are you reading this book?
I saw a few folks writing about either the book or the TV show so it got on my radar that way. Then I saw the physical book for sale at Costco but told myself I had plenty of other books to read. I caved three days later, when I had finished my last book and didn’t find anything on my bookshelf and/or Kindle very exciting.
What is the first line?
People disappear all the time. Ask any policeman. Better yet, ask a journalist. Disappearances are bread- and- butter to journalists.
Describe the book in haiku form:
ring of stone. magic.

What will you do with it now?
keep for reference
xxx keep and loan out to friends/recommend they download xxx
keep to read again & again & again
throw it away/delete from the Kindle
Anything else you’d like to say?
She gets sent back and time and does remarkably well for herself, despite the fact all she knows about that time period if from her husband’s rambling. The romance is corny but not too much it’s distracting.
(This is book 2 of the 15 I want to read this year.)
