1. I wish I had the time, but probably not for next month or so.

2. That's GOT, right?

I read all 5 books and just got confused and a little bit bored. It's kinda like Shakespeare tragedies. Every body dies. Plus he never finished the story.

Sorry.

3. After the new books come out

I might reread the first ones. As I recall they were easy reads.

5. I am also waiting for the 6th book to be posted for advance order on Amazon

That is usually 3 months or so ahead of time so I should finish the others before it arrives. Of course, if I am not finished, I will just let hubby read it first.

Did you know there are two versions of a merger of books 4 and 5?
They are on the internet and are rearranged in chronoligical order. So you read chapters 1 & 2 in book 4, then a couple of chapters in book 5 then you continue to move back and forth between the two books. I have all 5 on Kindle plus the hardbound books. I think being able to follow all the storylines instead of a whole book with only 4 or 5 of them then another with the remaining ones. That was really frustrating.

Tower of The Hand has at least one of them.

We have read books 1, 2, & 3 three times each, book 4 twice and book 5 once. I do not usually re-read books but I discover something I missed every time I go back.

4. I can't stand another look at George RR Martin's inability to use semicolons correctly

But I hope you find someone to do it with!
