    We've been led to believe once more that the next book is just around the corner. Whether or not this fact, is anyone interested in rereading the series with me? I'd like to go through them all one more time before A Dance with Dragons comes out.

    It can be as official or unofficial as you'd like it to be, just as long as we stay within a chapter or two of each other.

    Let me know here, or PM me.

    I reread the books a few months ago and I'd love to reread them again, but I have ten or more unread books on my shelf...

    I'm in, I was only thinking of this last week. My preference would be unofficial, as I'm quite delinquent. :D

    Revok,

    I just started the Wheel Of Time as well and am 300 pages into the first book. I like how Parrin Aybarra is pissed he has to have a connection with wolves!


    All,

    It will be a long time until I am able to re-read ASoIaF. However, I am able to listen the books on audio tape at work. The only one I have been able to find at the local library is aFfC. I am listening to it now. If I can some how find AGOT or A COK or SOS I will do the re-read or re-listen. hahah. I would love to be involved in the convo's anyway.

    Good Idea!

    I'll give it a try though I can't promise I'll manage to keep up (school :yak:).

    I'm just finishing up Enemy Of God by Bernard Cornwell, then I have one more book in tht series, but after that I'll start rereading. I may be a little slow cause I have a lot to do but I'll try and keep up.

    I love the response - it sounds like everyone is interested on some level. I'm going to set the official (yet unofficial) starting date to:

    January 21st

    For those of you in the U.S., this is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. You should be off of school, and most of you off of work. No excuses. :)

    Reread Discussion threads will be set up to unofficially discuss what we've read. I'll try to set the pace as slow as possible to allow time for all four books before the end of the 2008 year. We'll see how it goes. No rush!

    Wheeeeeeeeeee! Looks like the gangs all here! *waves*

    I'm in, may be a bit slow at first I have absolutely no energy to do anything right now with work and this baby sucking the life out of me! ;) So, unless this baby pops out early I'll be working until around the 1st of February, but after that hopefully I'll be good to keep up! :banana:

    I'm ok, just the usual complaints, sore back, tired all the time and ready to be done with it! Sometimes it does seem like it's never going to end! Lol! :D No worries Liadan, I have a few more weeks the due date is around the February 11th!

    Thanks App! We did find out and it's a girl! And yes Arya is on my list along with Ellaria and Arriane it's just convincing my hubby! ;)

    Here here! :draught:
