Have you tried to get others to read the OUTLANDER books or watch the TV series?



Diana Gabaldon often says that these are "word-of-mouth books, because they're too weird to describe to anybody."   This month's poll asks the question, "Have you tried to get other people to read the OUTLANDER books or watch the TV series?" Please take a moment to vote.

I got my sister addicted to the books a few years ago, and I certainly have done my bit as an "OUTLANDER ambassador", helping to spread the word about the series in all its various forms. Here I am in 2010, on my first visit to the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in NC, with a handmade OUTLANDER sign.



What about the rest of you? If you've had some success with getting people hooked on OUTLANDER (books, TV show, or both), please leave a comment here or on my Outlandish Observations Facebook page, and tell us about it.

Hi Karen , I'm the only person who loves the "Outlander" series , both TV show and books , when I first started reading the series , I gave a copy of "Outlander " to my cousin who was going on a trip to London hoping that she would love it too , but didn't work. I also tried to get my mother & aunt to read the books , but again nothing , my mother loves mysteries and detective shows and my aunt loves , "Downton Abbey' , which I like too and anything on PBS, so I'm afraid I'm along in my love for Outlander, please post more soon, can' wait until next Saturday Night.. Sincerely Yours. Mary Tormey.

I have been reading these since I was 14 and have convinced 4 of my close friends (and quite a few others) to read this amazing series. They, in turn, have become Outlander ambassadors. I have even offered to reimburse people if they did not like the book. No one has ever collected!
