There were 3120 responses to this month's poll, which is one of the highest totals for any poll I've ever done. Thanks very much to everyone who participated!

I thought the results of this poll were very interesting. I was rather startled by the number of people (15.77%) who said they've been reading the OUTLANDER books since they were first published in 1991. On the other end of the spectrum, almost 24% of the respondents found the series within the last year, since the premiere of the OUTLANDER TV series.

I didn't vote in the poll myself, but I've been reading (and re-reading, and re-listening to) Diana Gabaldon's books since November 2006, which is more than 8 1/2 years.

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