I'm going to be away from my computer for a while, because this:

is going to be arriving shortly!!! If you haven't read any of Diana Gabaldon's books, you really should. They're my favorite. Start with Outlander. I'd love to summarize them, or give you an idea of what they're about, but they're really indescribable.

Here's the Amazon review of Outlander:
Amazon.com Review
In Outlander, a 600-page time-travel romance, strong-willed and sensual Claire Randall leads a double life with a husband in one century, and a lover in another. Torn between fidelity and desire, she struggles to understand the pure intent of her heart. But don't let the number of pages and the Scottish dialect scare you. It's one of the fastest reads you'll have in your library.

While on her second honeymoon in the British Isles, Claire touches a boulder that hurls her back in time to the forbidden Castle Leoch with the MacKenzie clan. Not understanding the forces that brought her there, she becomes ensnared in life-threatening situations with a Scots warrior named James Fraser. But it isn't all spies and drudgery that she must endure. For amid her new surroundings and the terrors she faces, she is lured into love and passion like she's never known before.

An Echo In the Bone is the seventh tome in the series. I'm so excited to read it that I actually downloaded the Kindle preview so that I could start it this morning before UPS arrives with my copy. It's 832 pages, so I should be finished by Thursday. The last new one came out when MG was a baby. I've been waiting for this day for a long time!

I'm tempted to reread the series before I start the newest one, but it would take a couple of weeks, and I'm too anxious. Last time I read the new one, then reread the series afterward. I always find new information and details that didn't stand out in my last read when I reread these books. The scope of them is just incredible. And the steamy scenes are really steamy!

Crap! I didn't know this was coming out. I LOVE THIS SERIES! Thanks for posting! Have you read the Clan of the Cavebear series? Just as good. So did you pick CLAIRE after the books series? :)
