Financially Independent, Retired Early(ish) at 57.

Frugal Friday: See you later!

This book just came up on my library holds. When I reserved it, I was number 39 in the queue. I didn’t know if I could stop myself from buying it. After all, I have the previous 8 books in my kindle app. But here we are – frugality for the win. But I had to wait 4 months to dive into it.

Anyone who hasn’t read the “Outlander‘ novels, (or at the very least, seen the series), is missing out big time.

It’s 900 pages – with very small font – of Claire and Jamie magnificence. So much to read!! I’m so happy.

See you on the other side!

    Only trouble is, when so many people have placed reservations, you only get 2 weeks to read them ? (At least with our library anyway.)
    I struggle with that with long books!

      I’m a speed reader. I’m onto it, baby!!!!

    You will love it! I couldn’t wait and bought it. However, I’ll pass it on to a friend who’ll pass it on to a friend….

      The circle of life. Or reading.
      Whichever, it’s all good. I’m 113 pages in so far.

    Oh – I know – I am a couple of hundred pages in. I wish I could just put the world on hold so I can devote all of my time to reading…lol

    • FrogdancerJones

      Haha. I CAN do that… I’m 113 pages in (I had to finish 3 Murderbot novellas before I started.) Now I’m all ready to immerse myself into the Outlander world.

    I love the hold system. Just watched a DVD that I put on hold when I first re-joined the library about 4 months ago.
    Never read or watched Outlander I’m afraid.

    Enjoy!!! I stalked the library catalog for that title diligently as soon as it was announced and was NUMBER ONE on the hold list – will never happen again! I still work but read the book in a week.

    Now I’ve got a hold for the e-book so I can reread. I’ve frozen the hold and will activate it when I’ve floated to the top of the queue and it’s a convenient time to read (that’s my favorite library trick!).

    • FrogdancerJones

      I’ve just been notified that I have another book on hold that’s available, but I’ll be waiting a few days until I pick it up.

    I loooove these books and series. One of the few that I’m collecting. I bought the book but need to finish another before I get lost in this one!

    • FrogdancerJones

      I’m about 2/3 through now. It’s all-encompassing.
