Hi Karen , I started reading Outlander in June of 2000 , the Harry Potter craze was going on and had just read book 4 in that series , but loved Scottish historical fiction and a friend who worked with me at Barnes & Noble told me that Outlander would be 'right up my alley ' so not only did I buy the first book I bought all 7 books in the series , I started reading that night , it drew you in from the start and when I found myself reading Outlander far into the night several times I knew I had found a very special series , by the time I got to "Drums " I was hooked and a big fan , now I have 20 copies of each book in my library , plus special editions and every year in June I re-reading 'OUtlander ' as sort of an anniversary of falling in love with a very special series and discovering a very special author Diana Gabaldon. please post more soon. Happy Weekend. Loving Outlander. Sincerely .
