Read from August 22 to December 29, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 2

Second time through. I've seen the tv series and that helped some with being able to keep up with the amount of characters and story arcs and geographical locations. I love this series and I'll be finishing the rest as fast as I can! :D

Quotes Sleepy Owl Books Liked

George R.R. Martin
“... a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

George R.R. Martin
“Oh, my sweet summer child," Old Nan said quietly, "what do you know of fear?
Fear is for the winter, my little lord, when the snows fall a hundred feet
deep and the ice wind comes howling out of the north. Fear is for the long
night, when the sun hides its face for years at a time, and little children
are born and live and die all in darkness while the direwolves grow gaunt and
hungry, and the white walkers move through the woods”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

George R.R. Martin
“Some old wounds never truly heal, and bleed again at the slightest word.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
