    "Then came an infidel, one by the name of Kiwi, and spake he through MSN unto the Converter, most holy of all readers. 'Why hast thou converted Ice into worship of thy unholy religion, worship of A Song of Ice and Fire?'

    And spake the Converter, 'He is my convert. I have sacrificed him to GRRM as an offering, and ye, behold, he hath been accepted. And see, Ice is content, for he hath found the path of righteousness.'

    'He is no convert!' the infidel replied. 'He is thy slave, evil temptress! He is thy slave until death! Slave after death! A member... of the demonic HORDE!'

    But the Converter said, 'Bow down, then, and convert. If ye worship the One True God, ye may yet be saved.'

    And at this, GRRM revealed his face unto the most holy of readers, saying, "Ye, I see thy offerings and find them good. For thy faithful service, I name thee as my High Prophet, holiest of all readers. Yet one more do I want - thou shalt convert this infidel friend of thine, Kiwi. Thus have I spoken, and thus shall it be done."

    And at this, the High Prophet left her computer with a gun in her hand and directions to Kiwi's house. Thus it was that all readers knew that to convert infidels to worship of GRRM was holy indeed.

    ~ The Book of Conversion , verses 15-20

    Note: [The Book of Conversion is the fourth book in the Book of Faith, the aSoIaF Bible for AFTER ye have read the Holy Texts of GRRM.]



    OK, this club is for cool people who have converted other people to worship of GRRM. :D Who knows, if I get bored, I might actually write more of the Books of the aSoIaF Bible/Book of Faith. :D

    You guys ever think that you're going overboard??? I've got my wife & 2 of our friends. My brother in law just started, he'll take a few years on it. He's a real lazy reader. Got a couple of other friends who might read it soon as well cuz we're planning on starting a Game of Thrones RPG.

    This is hard, trying to remember.

    Two guys I used to play City of Heroes with. I can't remember their real names but they played characters named Bubble Bug and Sanwise.
    Thor, a friend who posted on TFF once.
    Kelly, a co-worker.
    A guy named Jeff in my speech class.
    Renz, sort of.
    Most recently, my Uncle.

    I feel like there's more but I can't think of anyone else. Oh well.

    I could try to recruit more people but then I'd have to loan out my books and I hate that. people always ruin my books and besides that if I've leant them out I don't have them to pick up whenever I want.

    lol, Thanks! And as soon as you said that I figured out the one that was nagging me. My ex-boyfriend, Matt. He hadn't read AFFC the last time I talked to him because he didn't want to spend money on a hardback book. That's not a fan thing to say.

    Should we start offering people rewards for reading the series or punish them for not doing it? or maybe both? punish them til they read it and then reward them??? All in the name of THE GRRM?
