About the second book. I keep waiting for something good to happen. I keep reading for the dragons, and hoping the little starkletts will grow up ( as opposed to getting killed )and kick some butt.
It's the Song of Fire and Ice. Or Ice and Fire. Or Whatever.

Happiness is an illusion.

Don't become attached to any characters, or to your opinion of any characters.

Now you've done it. Either let Lil' Pete have that Kindle or get another one just for her. You can have a book on up to five devices on the same account.

Sweet! Now I can figure on it being about a month or so before Netflix has it. YAY!

I don't know, since we don't get HBO I usually don't have any awareness of when a show is originally broadcasting. But generally speaking, once the DVD is released to the public, it is soon available for rental as well. The major licensing issues are usually over whether Netflix is allowed to stream the data, or can only mail out physical copies (which forces them to buy more copies themselves, if they want to send it to enough people to keep them happy customers.) Currently they're not saying whether they'll stream it or not, but we'll get the discs if we have to.

Woo! First DVD arrived today! I know they've had PR problems, but I don't give a crap what anyone else says. Netflix is awesome.
