Dee (austhokie) | 1098 comments After doing our re-read in January and continuing on into February, I thought that the reading challenge for this month would focus on the book that started it all.

You can only use a book for one category - no overlap allowed

It is a category challenge, you can choose to do 3, 5 or 7 of the category choices

1. Read a book by any author who's first or last name starts with a letter in OUTLANDER
2. Read a book about WW2 (can be fiction or non-fiction)
3. Read a book set in Scotland
4. Read a book with a predominently red or blue cover (to celebrate either the release of the 20th anniversary edition, or the solid blue cover that most of us know and love)
5. Since Outlander was published as cross-stitch in the UK, read a book that was released under another name in a different country
6. Claire disappeared while looking for an interesting plant she saw - read a book that has a plant/flower on the cover
7. Outlander was originally released in 1991, read another book that was released during that year
