Please take a moment to vote in the June poll, which is all about your favorite opening lines in the OUTLANDER books. Thanks!

I wonder if anyone has calculated the amount that the sale of books has gone up since the TV series started.

Yay.. I am not going to worry about how many episodes are given to seasons 3 and 4 . I am just grateful that the Outlander saga will continue to unfold on-screen. As kindergartners are advised.."You get what you get, and you don't get upset."
