My Ride: Is in a salvage yard
The only fiction I have ever read was the bible, and that was just to see what all the fuss was about.


edit: I also read goosebumps as a kid.

Thats what I tried after season 1. I bought the first 3 books for $20 on amazon and made it through 87 pages of book 1.

I bought the books. They are great, however, very long. It would take me a year to read all 5 at my rate. So I found audio versions online and I listen to a couple chapters everyday on my way to work or something. The story is excellent and a lot is obviously left out in the show.

But it all depends on whether you like to read and whether you are a fast reader. It is, admittedly, a commitment of time and concentration.
I don't doubt it. I just don't have that kind of time and if I will spend it reading, I'd rather learn about more than just the fictional characters of Westeros.

That is a mistake, as there is certainly nothing more important in the world we live in than the intrigues and adventures of the fictional characters of Westeros.

My friend sent me this pic of what he does at work a week ago. It's them speculating on who's going to live or die.

So I've been re-watching some Bond films, and I noticed that the guy who plays Edmure Tully is in Casino Royale, and Robb Stark's wife is in Quantum of Solace. Just thought it was neat.

You re-watched Quantum of Solace...? Why?!
