Then... My other dear friend JennJ has issued a highlander of a challenge I am definitely going forth with... These are her rules of her game....

Her challenge calls forth all Highlander lovers.

From her place, a description:

Have you always wanted to read the Outlander series but because of one thing or another you just haven't yet? Or are you like me and just want to revisit one of your favorite series again? Well it's time to take that leap through the stones my friend into the wonderful, thrilling, and passionate world of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series!

And yes the books are much longer than most but trust me once you start them you won't be able to put them down and you will fly through them! But because they are so long this challenge is going to run for an entire year so there is plenty of time to do the challenge, and still read some other books in between as well!

The challenge begins on November the 17th and will end November 17th 2010.

The Rules:
(oh don't worry they are easy!)

1. Anytime between Nov. 17th, 2009, and Nov. 17th, 2010, read the entire Outlander series. ((You do not have to start on Nov. 17th you can start the challenge anytime in the course of the challenge you like there is not any right or wrong way to do it.)) Read Outlander through the latest book An Echo in the Bone. (Any format is acceptable - be it paperback, hardback, ebook format, or audio *the unabridged audio is best as you will miss a LOT of the stories if you get the abridged versions, but is not strictly required*.

**There is also a companion book to the series called The Outlandish Companion this is a fun and informative look at the series, but is NOT required to be read for this challenge. However if you would like to add it to your list feel more than free to do so. It is a lot of fun and there are a lot of things that Diana explains in it from her point of view think of it as a behind the scenes look at the series.**

2. Sign up here by leaving a comment to this post telling me that you would like to join. Please include your blog address as well if you would like to blog about the challenge, so that I can link to your posts. *Please note that you do not have to have a blog or website to participate.*

3. Come back and leave a post at the seperate book posts here *see the list on the right side of the blog here there is one for each book* and I will link your progress and your posts to the books as you complete each one.

4. Enjoy yourself don't stress and have fun with it! That's all there is to it now see that was pretty painless wasn't it. :)

*I am in the process of creating some pretty Outlander graphics/badges that you can post on your blog showing that you are participating. As well as some badges for each time that you complete one of the novels. Please check back soon for these!*

If you have any questions or comments at all please don't hesitate contact me. You can email me
here and I will get back to you ASAP. :)

This is going to be a fun journey!

  13. Whew! I really need to shape up, can't keep up with Cecile!! EH challenge... Highlander challenge... *groan*

  14. Hi Cecile,
    I will be joining EH's challenge. I'm not sure on the Outlander one, those are some thick books, and I could read more steamy books instead ;) Have a great weekend :)

  15. Hi Cecile!

    Hope you have fun with all your challenges!!! I'm always afraid of the challenges, lol, I sign up for one and lose all interest in reading those books. Call me fickle. I do join one or two but usually something to do with vampires, I heart vampires.

    Dottie :)

  16. Yea me and Mr. Linky got in a fight earlier this year and I did not do the challenge I was trying for. I did read the books, but did not enter the real challenge. So we shall see how it goes this year. Maybe I will get Mr. Linky all hot ad bothered with my book choices that he will just let me in!!! ROFLMAO!!! That so does not sound nice... hee hee!!!!
    But I am fickle too Dottie... especially with those Highlander books... but I was promised some loving!!!!


I want to thank you for stopping by my place... I hope to see you again!!
I hope you enjoy my little bloggie home as much as I do!
With hugs, love and smiles... Cecile

My Fictional Smutty Boyfriend.... =)
