Bookseller Diaries No. 2

I ran into a customer the other day that was an Outlander fan. As soon as she uttered “I love Outlander” it was like the sky had parted and rainbows and unicorns appeared and we were skipping hand and hand together in a meadow of flowers as book BFFs. There is something about that fandom that sparks a unity with women that I haven’t seen in any other series. It is the highlight of my shift when I can lose myself in a discussion with someone about it.

When you’re in a brick and mortar store you get to ….*gasp*….have an actual conversation with a person/bookseller. It’s almost magical. Yes, I realize that’s kind of dramatic but it’s still the truth….well, my truth.

Anyway, we started discussing other series to read if you like Outlander.  I suggested:

This got me thinking. What did you read after Outlander? Also, when are we getting the next book in the series??? Come on already Diana!!!
