Shomeret | 1368 comments Ooh! The Scottish Prisoner! I'm pretty sure Gabaldon fans know which Scottish prisoner that will be.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments Thanks, Cheryl! I am so far behind on new releases I may get to these next November, but am looking forward to several, I wasn't aware of a new James W Hall.

Marcy | 865 comments Thanks, Cheryl. Connelly, Gabaldon and King!! Can't wait to get my hands on these, though I may have to listen to 11/22/63 - don't think my hands can handle the weight :-)

Donnajo | 3497 comments Thanks Cheryl, I'm looking forward to evanovich and patterson.


message 10: by Ann (new)

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments Marcy: Or Kindle! It is funny, I still want to have a hardback to shelve, but don't want to read a hardback unless it is a library copy.

message 11: by Ann (new)

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments I am way to early in the game with Diana Gabaldon's books to know what Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner is all about, but know I better get caught up eventually.


message 12: by Melodie (new)

Melodie (melodieco) | 3598 comments I'm really interested in the King book, but the "doorstops" he seems to write anymore are almost too much for me to even think about!


message 13: by Shomeret (new)

Shomeret | 1368 comments Re getting caught up with Outlander so that you understand the title of Gabaldon's latest --I believe Lord John (Grey) appears in the first Outlander novel and that the information given about him there pretty much explains the title. You could also go to the book's pageThe Scottish Prisoner: A Lord John Novelwhich will certainly explain the identity of the Scottish prisoner in question.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments Shomeret - indeed it did! It might even tempt me to read The Scottish Prisoner: A Lord John Novel out of order.

Shomeret | 1368 comments I wouldn't read Lord John and the Scottish Prisonerbefore reading Dragonfly in Amberas background.

BTW,the Lord John novels are related to the Outlander series, but not part of it. The remaining books in the Outlander series after Dragonfly in Amber don't deal with the same events and themes, so I don't think it's necessary to read them before tackling Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner.

Thanks for posting this for us. Some good ones out there.

Donnajo | 3497 comments I'm sure you might also be able to find out about it in the outlander companion which is probably outdated I heard someplace that they might be a update to it at some point. I'm so behind on the series.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments Shomeret - I think (maybe) I may have a hardback copy of Dragonfly in Amber around here somewhere...

Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 7808 comments Ann, how do you go about deciding which version to select? Kindle, audible, library HC, purchase, oh my! Maybe it's credit-worthy at audible?

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments That is the one hundred million dollar question.. I struggle with this choice for every book - it is the daily puzzle!

message 21: by Dawn (new)

Dawn | 1257 comments I will be treating myself to 11/22/63 on Kindle..not really treating myself, as I had asked for a gc for my birthday and have been saving it. Carol, I know for me, if its a book I'm going to read quickly...like my favs...Coben, Crais, Sandford, etc...I'll request from the library. I don't want to pay the higher price for a new release and be done in two days.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14291 comments Dawn: I agree with trying to avoid the higher prices for Kindle new releases! Did you see the new feature for Amazon Prime members - a 5,000 title Kindle Lending Library including NY Times best sellers. You can borrow up to one Kindle book a month with no due dates! looks interesting! http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=KCQu...
