July poll results

Here are the results of the July poll: "How long have you been reading Diana Gabaldon's books?"
  • 19.49% - Since OUTLANDER was first published.
  • 15.33% - 5-10 years
  • 15.17% - 15-20 years
  • 12.96% - 10-15 years
  • 12.58% - 2-5 years
  • 10.21% - 20+ years
  • 5.4% - 1-2 years
  • 4.54% - Less than 6 months
  • 3.51% - 6 months to 1 year
  • 0.16% - I read excerpts of her work on Compuserve before OUTLANDER was published.
  • 0.11% - I don't remember.
  • 0.54% - Other
Here are the responses for "Other":
  • since it was published in paperback in UK as Cross Stitch
  • Only since last November, but have read ALL 4X
  • suggested by the librarian, was totally hooked
  • 1st book 4 yrs ago, series this year, now have read all published works. Twice.
  • I don't think I've read any at all
  • 3 years - read all 3 times and listened to first 4 too.
  • Four years over and over and over and over
  • about 9 months, read all of them incl Lord John books, love him too. can't wait
  • The original outlander... In PB...it fell apart!
  • re-read many
There were 1852 responses to this poll, which I think is a new record! Thanks very much to everyone who participated.

I admit to being rather startled that 30% of the respondents have been reading Diana's books for at least 20 years.  By comparison, I'm a relative newcomer to the series. <g> I found OUTLANDER in November, 2006. (My story is here, if you're interested.)

Please take a moment to vote in the August poll, which asks the question, "Would you go through the stones, if you could?" Thanks!
