April poll results

Here are the results of the April poll:

Which of Diana Gabaldon's books are you currently reading or listening to?
  • 13.04% - I'm reading other things right now.
  • 11.73% - THE FIERY CROSS
  • 11.36% - DRAGONFLY IN AMBER
  • 10.80% - DRUMS OF AUTUMN
  • 10.43% - A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES
  • 10.24% - VOYAGER
  • 10.06% - AN ECHO IN THE BONE
  • 8.19% - THE SCOTTISH PRISONER
  • 7.26% - OUTLANDER / CROSS STITCH
  • 1.12% - One of the shorter pieces ("Leaf", "Custom", or "Zombies")
  • 0.93% - LORD JOHN AND THE PRIVATE MATTER
  • 0.74% - LORD JOHN AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE BLADE
  • 0.37% - LORD JOHN AND THE HAND OF DEVILS
  • 0.37% - THE EXILE (graphic novel)
  • 3.35% - Other
I thought the responses for "Other" were interesting, particularly the people who said they were reading more than one of Diana's books simultaneously.
  • Reading everything again for the 4th time
  • Re-reading The Fiery Cross in concurrently with a library book
  • WOW reading the entire series for the first time! Will then begin to reread !!
  • excerpts
  • I have read all of diana's books and (im)patiently awaiting the nest one! I have
  • Outlander and Voyager depends on device I'm using
  • Finishing my 5th time through the whole series
  • Drums, zlj and the Private Matter, The Windup Gir, A Prayer for the Dying
  • I'm usually listening to one and reading one at the same time
  • reading something else but all these excerpts are making me crave to read them!
  • rereading all
  • Outlandish Companion
  • reading FC and ABOSA
  • Three at once!
  • LJBOB-kindle &Voyager iPod
  • Reading The Firey Cross again AND listening to Dragon Fly in Amber.
  • ABOSAA now, but went back into fave parts of Voyager this week. LOVE them all!
  • Reading ABOSAA and listening to Outlander.
There were 537 responses to this month's poll.  I didn't vote in it myself, but I was listening to ABOSAA for most of the month, and recently started listening to ECHO.

Thanks very much to everyone who participated!  Please take a moment to vote in the May poll, which asks the question, "Would you go through the stones, if you could?"

Hi Karen, it might just be me, but I see the words 'May Poll' on my screen but no poll underneath them, and the words aren't clickable.

Maybe a technical glitch?

I tweaked the poll a few minutes ago to make a minor change. Sounds to me like you need to refresh the page. It's working fine for me. Try closing your browser and opening it back up.

Hi, Karen!

Since many of us fans have read and re-read the books, I'm sure we all have a list of errors/ inconsistencies in the stories. For example, Michael was said to have married in Voyager (Chap 29, "Wee Michael’s just married, but his wife’s breeding.” ), but is only thinking of getting married in Fiery Cross (Chap 10, "On a happier note, we have had word from Michael in Paris; he continues to prosper in the wine business, and thinks of marrying soon.")

Perhaps you can dedicate a blog entry to this?

Ooops! My mistake. I meant "Drums of Autumn", not "Fiery Cross". =D
