Carol Blogs. Tracey Tweets. James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser means to take his time about it, aye?
Pulled an all-nighter just like you and put up a sign that reads "Enter at your own risk: #MOBY read-a-thon in progress." LOL
LOLOL!!! It was sitting there on my nightstand and I was awake! How could I not have, right?? :) BUT - I went back to sleep...for I have many mom duties today. I have to get them all accomplished and get back to this house and READ!!! :)
I kept watching my Kindle at midnight...at 12:30...nothing! I too had to have sleep for the day I have, so I went to sleep. At 7:00 a.m. BINGO! There it was! (I also have a signed print copy coming from the Poisoned Pen, but HAD to have it, so did Kindle too. LOL)
OMG I can't wait! You're getting a head start though. I'm not done and you hit five chapters. ;) Sadly I think it's looking like Thursday start for me. I want to read Space first. I think I should. Thoughts?
Dropped into my tablet at 10:22 p.m. (12:22 p.m. Eastern Time) and the reading commenced I have also downloaded the Audible version onto my tablet and laptop. About 25% of the way through already and it's soooo scrumptious. (from your other friend Connie)
I slept from 10-1, then read from 1-4. Chapters 1-9.Sleepy at work today. Oh well.:)But... yada yada yada, I was looking at the "click here" detail of the family tree, and kept scrolling through and voila! You and Tracey are in the acknowledgments, Along with Karen Henry. SOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! -Stacey (@snowwhitedriftd)
Have you checked the acknowledgements at the end???????
I started at 8am. I took a vacation day, read, had mimosas (Carol reminded me of the wonders of early drinking with mimosas-how could I have forgotten the breakfast of champions?-read almost all day. Today, back at work. Did I have lunch with my friends? Well, Jamie and Claire and Ian.....they're my friends.
First one into Barnes and Nobles - started reading in the parking lot and (shame on me) at every red light on the way home. Question: Why is Ian building cairns (for Jenny and Jamie)? I though when he and Claire left Scotland they didn't know Jenny was coming. . Remember, Claire was surprised when she saw Jenny. Also, if Jenny and Jamie were lost at sea, there would be no bodies to bury? What am I missing here?
Jamie wrote Claire before leaving, that is how they knew the ship Jamie and Jenny on which they were traveling. Jamie told Claire that Jenny was coming with him. She would have told Ian. Ian was building the cairns as a place where the family could come to morn the loss, although there were no bodies. Jenny build cairns for Ian's bairns at Lallybroch and took Ian there so that he could morn and know that they would be remembered.
Sorry. Above is me before I had a profile
