Diana Gabaldon’s genre-bending series, “Outlander,” was a hit well before there was a TV series based on the books. The eight novels, which center on a time-traveling British nurse who falls in love with a Scottish warrior, have more than 25 million copies in print and are published in about 40 countries.
But a TV show can turn a best-selling series into a blockbuster (just ask George R. R. Martin). When “Outlander” had its premiere on Starz in August, the first novel hit No. 1 on the best-seller list for the first time, 23 years after it was published. New readers apparently became hooked: The next three books in the series have also reappeared on best-seller lists.

Only way to get through the hiatus.
