A Work In Progress...
If you know of some interesting Outlandish tidbit, and you'd like to share it with other LOLers, please let us know!
The Lallybroch Library is divided into three sections:
- Outlandish Section: information about Diana Gabaldon, the books and Outlandish tidbits.
- Reading Recommendations: LOL's own "Methadone List", complied from suggestions of the Ladies and Lads, and now the new LOL Book of the Month feature.
- Ladies of Lallybroch Archives: Newsletters, Contests, and The Best of LOL, threads and posts we found should be preserved for posterity... :-)
