Hello from Me!

Post by Bobbi » Wed November 5th, 2008, 2:03 am

Hi everbody!! Marg introduced me to this site a few weeks ago and I thought I would finally stop lurking and introduce my self. Incase you didn't notice my name is Bobbi, ;) I love reading and wish there were more hours in the day to do so. I'm addicted to coffee and *Friends* I have two kids and am currently a stay at home Mum.

I love all kinds of books but became completely addicted to historical romances after reading Diana Gabaldon's 'Outlander' series, then it just snowballed out of control from there.

I'm looking foward to chatting with everyone, and hope to see you 'round the board. :D

Welcome Bobbi!

I am slowly getting through The Outlander series, having just finished The Fiery Cross. I have set this rule with myself, that I must split up books in a series, and I jump around from era to era and place to place too. So I think I started Outlander in 2005! There are just so many good books to read!

I also have 2 kids, so it seems like we have a lot in common! And I bet that you are going to enjoy the discussions here, with so many like minded readers.

Hi every one!
Marg I figured it was about time I introduced myself.

Amanda, I know what you mean about spacing books out. I'm hopeless and once I start a series I have to get through them.

Vanessa, don't you just love Jamie! I can't wait for the next book to come out. I'm waiting very impatiently.

Hi Bobbi,
Welcome to the list and yet more books!

Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Very definitely!Image It's amazing how a fictional character can obtain itself such a fan club.
