There were 461 responses to this month's poll.  Thanks very much to everyone who participated!  I thought the results were very interesting.  I didn't vote in the poll, but I would have chosen the first option; I got my sister hooked on the series in 2008.

The September poll is all about the animals in Diana Gabaldon's books.  Who's your favorite?  Rollo, Adso, the White Sow, or maybe Clarence the mule?  You decide. <g>  If your favorite isn't listed, just vote "Other".  I hope you'll take a moment to vote.  Thanks!

    Rollo, we see him more in the books than Adso, well he does go off and have adventures with Ian

    Rollo. He's a character in the books himself, while the rest are just animals.
