Oh, I so have to get this book now. I was literally yelling at my screen, "Show Jamie, show Jamie"! And ye' did. Thank you. Twas' a wee bit blurry, but dang' Jamie looks good! Just like I pictured him. *sigh* You guys are right, September cannot come fast enough.

Loved your OMG moment when you got to the infamous "Murtagh spoiler" :-)

And now that you've seen it, come on over to Compuserve and tell Diana what you think (or join in our speculations). The thread is here.

Jeanie - get your butt out and get that book! LOL It's awe-some. I canna stop looking at it. The graphics are amazing. Way better than looking at excerpts on the computer.

Karen - I tried to go to Compuserve yesterday or Sat - and had password problems. It wouldn't take my password. So I tried to change it - and tried to change it to the password I remembered (thinking maybe it would let me set the same password) and it tells me I'm trying to use my old password. So obviously I WAS using the correct password in the first place. It was almost comical. At any rate - after then spending some time at AOL.com and changing the password (and checking mail to make sure it worked) I tried again, to no avail.

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong! :)

Who knew Murtaugh was such a hotty??? From Claire's perspective, he left a lot to be desired. But from what I can see, he looks pretty good to me!

Loved your "A-ha!" moment. I never would have guessed that was coming, that is until I read the spoiler thread. Hope you can get into compuserve..there's even more to speculate about.

I did a quick scan of the book at Sam's club, but now I may sneak out and pick it up today. I just can't get past buying 3 copies of the same book??? Really?

Okay. I'm like either really slow or just mildly distracted by my summer classes. But, HELL-O! I had no idea the Exile preview was in that book when I had it in my hand. I have downloaded all the books thus far on my nook so I just peeked at the back not wanting to spoil the fun, but had NO idea that was in the back! Well, I'll be making a trip to B&N to check it out this week. Och! what was I thinking? You girls are TOO fun! Thanks for enlightening me!

Brandy said...

Yes - doesn't Murtagh look hot!! hee hee...In the discussion on compuserve when I commented on how much better/younger he looked then I had imagined Diana told me that we have to remember that this is through Murtagh's eyes which is how he sees himself - not how Claire sees him (hello ferret!).

Purgatory Carol said...

Ooooh Thanks Karen. I know you've posted that alternate link before, too. Bad Carol! I'll try it!

Patti, you are like me. I had to break out of my Kindle world and buy TFX, ABOSAA and Echo - because I didn't have them. My husband was like "Why are you buying books you've read?" and I was like "For my collection!!!" as if I were collecting never-before heard Beatles songs or original copies of the Declaration of Independence. I was literally offended that he'd even ask. LOL! (ooOh you should see my collection; so pretty!)

Brandy - WHOA GOOD POINT!! Never thought of that!!! I wonder how much - if at all - Murtagh's impression of Jamie differs from Claire's!

Sissy said...

Great video, loved your reactions! It makes you wonder what if anything Murtagh said to Jamie. I can hardly wait for the Exile! By the way I love your blog and have been reading since xmas and finally got up enough nerve to comment. Keep up the great work!

You people are great! I wish I knew you in real life! Thanks for sharing! LOL Awesome!

Seriously, we will ALL be partying in NYC at ComicCon in NYC, if you are anywhere in the vicinity...

Sissy - I am THRILLED you commented. WELCOME! I know how that feels...when you read a blog and want to be part of it all... and don't know how to just jump in. (Ahem Compuserve! Poor Karen is always telling us to just jump in but I'm a scard-y cat!)

Mindy - Tracey's right - and we'll be in NYC for ComicCon in October.. and we're looking forward to hanging with all of you Outlander buds from the blog!

Purgatory Carol said...

Oh Mali - you are too kind. :) Believe me - we love making these vids TOO much. The best was when I took a sip of coffee on one video and said "Sorry - I'm not trying to look like we're doing a morning show" and Tracey was like "Yes we are." LOL!!
