    well that of course is an argument :p

    I should stop looking into this thread. Or I'll trip over spoilers every few lines... it'll be weeks before I'll be able to finally read it. >.<

    Reading it on a eBook reader is fine (I don't have a Kindle but have a number of the others!), reading it on a frequently refreshed computer screen is just a recipe for a migraine. Still prefer a good paper book though.

    I'm off and started on A Dance with Dragons now so shhh keep your voices down, I'm trying to get into the totally absorbed reading zone ;)

    Finally got a chance to read ADwD over the weekend!

    Usual blood & mayhem but you can see the strands gradually converging.... in another couple of books (10yrs at current release speed? :( ) we might get the grand finale!

    I went to the bookstore the other day and looked at the Hardcover and decided not to purchase it...I just don't like them for some reason (apart from being a tightarse).
    I have been persevering with the e book in small doses. So I should be finished it at about Christmas!! :p

    I am about half way through!!
    A few secrets have come out so far, none really monumental though. Almost clichéd to a point in fact!! but I am not surprised, there is a feeling of rushing this a bit in the writing style as compared to the other books. But then again I am always bad mouthing his writing style and speed!!

    Don't expect any resolution - His point of view style just means that at the end the book, instead of one cliff-hangar there are about 6!

    I'm new to this series having bought and read the first 4 books just before Dance With Dragons came out. I sure hope it's not 6 years before the next book!!
