I didn't vote in the poll myself, but I discovered OUTLANDER completely by accident, browsing in Barnes & Noble in 2006. The full story is here if you're interested.
I've done variations of this same poll about once a year since 2009, and this is the first time that the "I found the OUTLANDER books as a result of the TV series" option got the most votes. Even though this wasn't a scientific poll by any means, I think that's interesting.
Please take a moment to vote in the August poll, which asks, "What's your favorite way to enjoy OUTLANDER?"
