I wonder what the world would look like if we started thinking about weapons as things that build people up instead of things that tear them down. We could start with books. Books are weapons against our own ignorance, prejudices, and narrow mindedness. Books never destroy us without building us back up again from new, better material.
Also, Doctor Who’s back on Saturday - the world needs more Doctor Who.
To celebrate my new found power as a participant in the WO’s Tumblr, I’m sharing with you something I’m very much looking forward to. I’ve been a fan of these books for years and in less than a month, Outlander’s story will be brought to life!
Outlander | New Series | STARZ
I feel like I should reread Outlander, but it’s such a large undertaking and so many other books. The first time I read it, I just didn’t enjoy it that much.
It makes me feel very guilty because Diana Gabaldon and I attended the same university for our undergrad. There’s a dorm on campus named after her father.
Maybe I’ll give it a try as audio.
You should absolutely give it another try! I know the books are long, but the series has everything — history, romance, biology, herbal info, Scotland, war, hunting, family, amazing character development, humor and the list goes on. I’ve read the series multiple times, I’ve borrowed the audio from the library and then broke down and bought it. Davina Porter, the narrator, does a fantastic job; I’d definitely recommend the audio!
