Exactly what it says on the tin: I’m rereading the book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, and recording my reactions mostly for my own future reference. I’m not expecting an audience, but making my thoughts public because it’s easier to do so than not these days.
When I first read the books, A Game of Thrones was available in paperback but A Clash of Kings only in hardcover, putting it probably about 1999 and making me a relative book-reading veteran (this will not be my first or second reread for most of the books). I see the television show only as it becomes available via DVD or legal online purchase for non-HBO subscribers in the United States.
Spoilers here for all published, broadcast, or otherwise legally available media, folks.
