    Since the Outlander series was brought up I thought others might also enjoy a similar series of books in the Ring Of Fire series. This is more of an action & adventure series, but if you enjoyed Outlander you might enjoy these novels.

    Plus they are all available from the Baen Books online book store with no DRM. Double Plus Good is that the first novel is free so you can try it before you buy.

    YES!

    Ha! No, not really. All of B&Ns ebook sizes are listing in MB when it should be KB. The webmaster should be spanked, me thinks.

    A big YES to The Oultlander series by Diana Gabaldon! And I do love the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlayne Harris.

    One of my all time favorites, beautifully written, (and better than the movie, IMHO,) The Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon. My husband loves The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, but I just couldn't get into it.

    Recently read The Lost Symbol...but I was somewhat disappointed in it. Sometimes an author can grab you with a first book, but by the third, he's writing to a "formula" and you can see exactly where he's going.

    For those of you with a quirky sense of humor, I highly recommend ANYTHING by Christopher Moore, author of Fool, Lamb, Fluke...amazing!

    When I am broke - which I am right now - I reread old favorites. I love rereading Harry Potter. JK Rowling is really a brilliant writer...I wonder if she will ever write anything for adults....although the last Harry Potter is really an adult book...all kinds of metaphysical, spiritual themes in it.

    I read the Sookie Stackhouse series too and by the third book or so it started to feel formulaic. I still read them though, except for the most recent one. Did you thinks so?

    haha- whew! I was thinking: what kind of crazy format are they using with their 1000% overhead, anyway!

    I would recommend, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. The story is written from the perspective of an autistic boy. I really enjoyed reading it!
