I'm jumping out of order for the second day in a row, and I'm posting a book again as well. I'm on this now because I just finished reading the third book in the Game of Thrones series (actually, the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire), A Storm of Swords. It was awesome.
The third season of the TV series begins soon on HBO. I don't get HBO, but I'm sure I'll see it soon enough. I've read that this book was broken into the next two seasons. Brace yourself. The awesome is coming.
