    Has it been confirmed that the next season will leave out the other half of the third book and go straight to the fourth? I had hoped for more seasons than books for a moment [​IMG]

    How would that even work? The stuff they've left out from the third book is massive, world altering stuff. No way they can just skip to Feast for Crows, it wouldn't even make sense.

    Next season will include the rest of book 3 and start on books 4/5, which will run concurrently as they take place at the same time.

    I'm just saying that you should finish ASoS before they show it on TV. You can read AFfC and ADwD next offseason if you read it slowly.

    Sweet.
    It's a bit like B-more crack, I'll warn you. You'll end up ordering all sorts of s*** on the theory, "oh what the hell, it's free shipping".

    Amazon Prime is a genius idea. 2 day free shipping = so many impulse buys, and they get 80 bucks a year out of me on top of it.

    It's evil. And the ability to account share is pure genius.

    Eh. To each his own, but with many books -- particularly longer books -- I enjoy the physical heft, and also the sense of physically moving through it. I love the kindle for when I travel, but I'm set enough in my ways to prefer reading paper books when I'm home. Plus they're much better for killing bugs and stuff.

    i did it for my roku player, the free shipping on these "book" things was just a side benefit.

    also, i have no interest in reading off of a screen. would be like a never ending tl;dr.

    Eh, I used to think so...but owning a kindle made a huge difference.

    The screens are not true screens...they actually look like a piece of paper (especially the new paperwhite). Didn't take long before clicking the next button felt as natural as turning a page. I read every GoT on paper...but when the next one comes out, I will almost certainly be buying a digital version.
