I am bying paperbacks. HC are even more expensive on ebay in comparison to new books - and they and heavier what makes shipping prizes rise.

I just want to read them and not use them as a treasure to be sold in times of need  :elf_gloop:  Happy enough I do not belong to the species called collectors - that would turn out to be awful expensive...

I usually buy paperbacks unless i cant wait and believe the Hardcover price will be worth the story.

Jaszmans link is the cover i have. The dude on the bottom right is supposed to be Rob i think. Wait untill you read the description of his crown and it fits. But that pic seems to Dark for my liking. Just a random observation :D

Good deals can be found on hard backs too, and you can still use them as long as you're careful and don't break the spine, and I would never sell my books, hard backs store easier as on a book shelf.  :smile:

The trouble starts when you start collecting a series in paperback because its beenout for a while then buy the latest ones in hard back, stuffs your entire collection up (Ie my feist collection).

I agree that is very annoying, with Feist I had all paperback up until the Riftwar legenbs books and since then I have about 8 H/B books which stuff up the bookshelf.

I finished Book one yesterday. I must say those two last chapters gave me goose pimples. Very intense, i must admit. I guess tomorrow I'll start with book two
(again cause I started reading it thinking I had book one in my hand. I realized my mistake while reading page 80 something... and I thought 'what a strange idea to hop into a story without a word of introduction of the characters' *lol*)

[span style=\'color:blue\'] its amazing that on the Song of Ice and Fire Board, fans are predicting how much longer Martin will approximately take to finish the book, going by how many draft pages, Pov's he has written..  [/span]

I say we stop waiting for it guys. Just forget about it. That way when the book finally comes out it will be a nice surprise, one we never thought would come.

*still has suspicions that GRRM is suffering from writters block, despite all that has been said otherwise*
