OUTLANDER: A series by Diana Gabaldon detailing the life and times of Claire Randall, an English battlefield nurse from 1945, and her husband Jamie Fraser, a Highlander from 1743, as well as that of their extended family in both the eighteenth century and the twentieth. It’s part romance, part time travel, part historical, part thriller, part shrine to Scotsmen and kilts, part whatever adjective you can think of. And it’s awesome. No seriously. Awesome.
[NOTE: This is besides the fact that (hopefully, probably) going to be a television series in the near future. All links are on mediafire and all files are .epub, which can read on Adobe Reader (on your computer) and most e-readers (nook, kindle, ipad, etc). If you need them in another format, download the file in question and go HERE. If anything seems to be broken, send me an ask and i’ll see what I can do.]
You guys keep asking me what my favorite book is…well…this is it! Here’s a chance to grab them!
In the stillness of a library, Ann Arbor-based artist Math Monahan has found life and energy in his book installations, entitledBetween. Viewers are torn between seeing the books as literature or as works of art. The pages are woven together in sections, naturally held together as an intertwined structure without any fasteners.
