It's finally here...An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon

Tuesday, September 22

I can't believe today is finally here! Woohoo. Have you been wondering about the symbol on the front cover? You know the one that looks like a chicken foot. As it turns out it is actually a "caltrop". What is that you may ask, well according to wikipedia it is an ancient weapon made up of sharp points. Diana's website explains the significance as "You see that the caltrop has four tines? Well, there are four storylines in this book, past and future, welded together by the heat of the American Revolution—and every one of 'em has a sharp point." Now I am even more intrigued!

Sadly I don't have my copy yet, due to my book budget being completely nonexistent right now I will have to wait to read it when my library gets it (don't feel too bad for me as I have it on reserve so should get it within a few days). Do you have yours, if not you can order it from Amazon by clicking on the images below (and it's on sale 45% off which is 15% more than B&N and Borders). If I were you I wouldn't try to find it at a store because I have a feeling you won't be able to find it, unless you pre-ordered a copy.

I found some interesting videos today with Diana at a recent convention talking about Outlander, and reading an excerpt from Echo so thought I would share it with you all. I hope you enjoy the videos...I did :)

Wonderful videos. Can't wait to read this one. Their size does intimidate me. I need to know I'll have time to just sit and read.

aah Pat. The size of the entire series should intimidate you. They are absolutely massive. I have to say that the first three, Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, and Voyager have been my favs, but I just can't give up Jamie and Clare they are like an addiction for me :)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
