I think it's interesting to see how the percentage of people who found the OUTLANDER books as a result of the TV series has been increasing, as the show has become more popular. Here are the results from polls I've done in 2015-2018 where I included that as an option. (Click on the image for a bigger view.)
If you're one of those people who found Diana Gabaldon's books as a result of watching the TV series, or hearing about it, I'd like to hear from you! Please leave a comment here or on my Outlandish Observations Facebook page.
Please take a moment to vote in the July poll, which asks, "What do you think of the Lord John books and stories?"
