    Lo and behold, this day is finally here. A Dance with Dragons has been released (well, in Australia anyway ;) lol) and I thought, since I'm most likely (but not certainly) the first person to own A Dance with Dragons on the forum, here is a piccy of myself with my new accessory!

    As you get it, post your own! :D

    Look it's a Renz and he came back to show off ;) J/k

    I gotta wait another month to get it, because I'm in the final stages of this semester: Ergo, if I buy the book now, all the studying would be completely forgotten and I'd fail all my tests. So yeah.
    Have fun reading it! I'm jealous...

    lmao, Renz...I missed you babycakes. Also - you're a douche. ;)

    I would have had it first if you didn't live in the future! :(

    Call me old fashioned...but I would rather wait for the real book to be in my hands, instead of downloading it!!
    Then again I still buy vinyl!! :p

    I know! It had already been downloaded on Tuesday before I had even woken up! (Thanks to my sister and I sharing Kindle account.)



    That's what I kept on saying, until I got a Kindle. Now, I'd rather be able to bring the huge ADWD book with me wherever I go, without it requiring a sleigh, or wheels, or a special bag.

    I'm slowly building a complete collection of Terry Prattchet books - I'll get them all in proper paperback (with the good original covers, not those black horrid new ones) but I'll probably end up with most on the kindle too :) Being able to carry lots of books without needing lots of space is great

    Nope, I wouldn't do that to you. I'm just wondering if anyone else has finished it, because if they have I can talk about it with them and not spoil the rest of you :).

    You are too kind!! As a result of not being able to get any info from you...I went and got a copy online of the book (much to my disgust) as I cant get to the (proper) bookshop until tuesday.
    Before I get flamed by the Kindle kids and their ilk...I must profess my shame at having done so!!

    So Anyway I am trying to read it on screen, but am not really enjoying the experience!! We will see how it goes. (Roll on Tuesday)

    Anyway I am into it, just finished the prologue.

    eeww reading on computer screens is evil I'll join you there - all glary and shiny bright

    Kindles though are much much better - you should get one - get two even! ;)
