Last year I set out to read George R.R. Martin's mighty 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series . . . and got part way into Book 2: A Clash of Kings before I got distracted by some sparkly lights or some other nonsense. Now that HBO has released its BluRays of Season 1 of 'A Game of Thrones', as it is calling the series, and Season 2 has arrived with its promise of bigger dragons, scary dire wolves and more blood-splat-gore-horror, I have determined that I will complete my quest to read the whole series. After some careful counting I think I will be able to do this by reading about 125 pages per week, which I should be able to fit around my other commitments and activities.
In order to keep me focussed upon my quest I will torment you by posting weekly updates: thanks for the support, guys! Plus, if I falter along the way I hope that at least one of you will give me a verbal kick up the backside to get me restarted: I might need it! :D
For more details check out my new Page and if you want to join me on this epic journey this week I will be reading up to p. 138 (the end of Catelyn III) in my edition of 'A Game of Thrones' and will publish my thoughts in a post next Sunday.
Winter is Coming!
