Yep, I watched all episodes. It's not common to see time travel through magical rather than science-like means. I have the first book too, but I don't know if I will have the time to read it any time soon.
“We think we understand the rules when we become adults but what we really experience is a narrowing of the imagination.”
I have loved the book series for years (or at least the first three, the American ones start getting veeeery slow at some point). Also love the show. But I always had a soft spot for time travel stories, especially with a romance element, and fish-out-of-water stories.
ETA: The first book is called Cross-stitch in the UK, as apparently 'Outlander' means something else there than it does in the US where the author is from.

I didn't know there were books either. I watched about half the first season so far and enjoyed it well enough though not to the point I felt compelled to keep watching. The guy in it was pretty hot though. I love time travel by magical means stories. One of my favourites from my younger years was very similar themed. Written by an Aussie author called Traci Harding....Ancient Future, that was it!
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
