Do you want downloads or actual CDs?

Ain't that the truth!! I was so obssessed with these novels. I wish I could erase them from my mind and go reread them all new again!

And Jamie!! Sigh!! Can you cheat on your man with a fictional character?? :D

Right now I have

Outlander
Dragonfly in Amber
Voyager
The Drums of Autumn

I have been looking for The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes, but I cannot find them at the same place where I picked up the others

Oh yeah, I am definitely in love with Jaimy, Roger is a close second after reading The Fiery Cross. Oooh, those men in plaid! ;)

Yes, Roger went through quite a transformation, didn't he? I thought he was sort of boring and geeky (although in real life I'd probably find that sexy!!) but he turned all hunky in the last two novels!

I prefer downloads, since they just go right on the ol' I-Pod, but CDs work in a pinch because I can covert those over to MP4, which then go on the I-Pod. (Convoluted, I know).

Okay....Audible.com has the first four books available for download in the unabridged versions.

Audiobooks.com has A Breath of Snow and Ashes.

Recordedbooks.com has The Fiery Cross but I think only to buy and they seem expensive compared to some of the other places.

It's weird that you can't get them all from one place.

Thanks for looking....I appreciate that. I'm a member of Audible, so that takes care of the next 3 in the series. I'll check out the other two sites, as well. It would be so nice to have them all, unabridged, on audio. I have to take one of our cars from LA out to Houston later this month and I can't think of a better way to pass the time than listening this series. :)

That would certainly make the journey better in my books as well!

Isn't that the truth. It's so funny that you find the boring geeky guys sexy in real life. I find that to be true, especially if they are really passionate about what they do. When I was first dating my husband he sent me this geeky picture of himself and I was all over it. He laughs about it now! But isn't it interresting that what we appreciate and enjoy in real life is not necessarily what turns us on in literature. For me, reading is an escape, so I like to read and fantasize about situations that I normally wouldn't do or see myself doing.
