Wait until Spring 2012!

If you have been following the HBO series Game of Thrones and groaned when you found out that you will have to wait until Spring to find out what happens to the Starks, the Lannisters, Daenerys Targaryen and Joffrey Baratheon, you could cheat and read the “Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R.R. Martin:

A Game of Thrones   bk 1

 A Clash of Kings         bk 2

A Storm of Swords    bk 3

A Feast of Crows       bk 4

A Dance with Dragons    bk 5

It just might make the wait a little easier.
