I wouldn't wait! There are 7 in the outlander series, including the last one to be released in March of 2010. They are as listed...
1. Cross Stitch (1991)
aka Outlander
2. Dragonfly in Amber (1991)
3. Voyager (1993)
4. The Drums of Autumn (1996)
5. The Fiery Cross (2001)
6. A Breath of Snow and Ashes (2005)
7. An Echo in the Bone (2009)
All of these books are around 700 pagers...definitely something to sink your teeth into. But what a ride while it lasts!

I haven't read an Outlander book for over a year, and I still think about the characters!

After I read the first couple, I ended up having to restrict my buying of the next books until Fridays because I knew that if I bought it on a weekday that all I would want to do would be to read, to the detriment of my sleep, feeding my child (lots of sandwiches for meals on the weekends when I was reading.). At the time he was about 4, so he did well to make his own sandwiches at the time!

My poor husband has been so neglected this past month as I read two books back to back. He threatened me to not pick up another Gabbaldon until we were moved into our new house. (Probably not until end of October) :eek: These aren't the kind of books you can hide imbetween the box spring and matress eh? Ha, Ha!

While I'm not a huge romance fan (no ripping bodices for me, thank you), I absolutely loved these books. So much so, in fact, that even after I had read them through twice, I still purchased the unabridged audio recordings just to have. 'Outlander' was my favorite, but the entire series falls into the "I could read again and again" category.

You know, I can only find a few of the books unabridged on audio...others just don't seem to be available. Not sure why that is.

Whatever you do, hold out for the abridged. I am trying to remember where they are sold. I'll get back to you on that one.
