Have you tried to get others to read the books?
The August poll asks the question, "Have you tried to get other people to read the OUTLANDER books?"
I'd like to hear your stories. Have you managed to get your spouse, boyfriend, or other family members to read the books? What about friends or coworkers?
Do you approach strangers in the library or bookstore and tell them they really should read OUTLANDER? (I personally have never done this. On the other hand, I did spend all day at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in 2010 wearing a homemade OUTLANDER sign, sort of like a walking billboard, so I suppose that counts....)
Have you ever tried to get someone to read OUTLANDER, only to find that they just weren't interested? (Very frustrating!)
Have you ever been someone else's "OUTLANDER mentor"? (I have, for my sister, and it was a lot of fun.)
What about those of you who won a box of OUTLANDER paperbacks from Random House (pictured above) to give away to potential readers? Did you have any luck getting people to read the books?
Diana Gabaldon often says these are "word-of-mouth books", and I know that she very much appreciates our (collective) efforts to spread the OUTLANDER addiction! <g>
