    Just wait until it starts getting good. Then you will be hopelessly addicted.

    Funny story - I was outside my histroy class last Tuesday and there was this guy standing there reading R. A. Salvadore (yuck). I asked him if read a lot of fantasy (yes) and if he had ever read George Martin (yes!). Well apparently this guy liked the series a lot but wasn't too into talking to strangers. I can't tell you how bad I wanted to sit down with him and start with the, "Ok...who do you think Jon Snow's parents are?!" stuff but he completely avoided me the rest of class. I'm cute, and while obsessive I'm not THAT scary. Jeez!

    I just lent GoT to my assistant manager at work and he's getting hooked. Probably the 8th or 9th person I've converted. I love people who love ASoIaF! ;)

    LOL, in all my history classes the TA's have all read ASOIAF. We alwasys ended up talking about the history that GRRM uses and how historically accurate he stays and it really is amazing how closely he follows history. Not to mention getting on the good side of your TA is a huge bonus :)

    After getting my wife hooked I bought the first three books in HB and gave my nephew my paperbacks and now both him and his wife are enjoying them.

    Im still in A Storm of Swords.....kinda getting bogged down. It may be though, having been ill im finding it hard to hold concentration on anything. Im about half way through and hoping it grabs me once again.

    Storm of Swords is possibly the best book in the series thus far. I hope you don't think it's dull too much longer!
