There were 1020 responses to this month's poll. Thanks very much to everyone who participated! I didn't vote in the poll myself, but I was one of those people who stumbled across OUTLANDER completely by accident, browsing in Barnes & Noble in 2006.  You can see the full story of how I found OUTLANDER here.

Please take a moment to vote in the June poll, which asks the question, "What do you think of the Lord John books and stories?" Thanks!
