It's Happening!

We are now officially 2 weeks and 6 days away from the debut of Game of Thrones on HBO. Yeah, I'm kind of excited.  Not simply because there will be a total eyeful of adorable British boys (Kit Harington, you're about to make all the fangirls swoon!) but also because this seems like the perfect storm of material and adaptation.  Let's face facts, HBO has a pretty great track record for shows, and this story with its built-in fan base pretty much guarantee that good things should happen.

Because of all of the HBO hoopla, Entertainment Weekly has decided to make Game of Thrones (the first book in the Song of Fire & Ice series) its Bookshelf Book Club pick.  Since it is longer than most of their Book Club picks, it's being treated slightly different.  For more details, feel free to take a look here:

In addition, my friend Seth had the brilliant idea to start a podcast, which I was lucky enough to be asked to partake in.  As of right now, there are 4 of us, and we'll be discussing the show (after it airs) with as few spoilers as possible, just a kind of react/recap thing.  If you're not so much a reader (or if you just happen to miss hearing my voice) you can check out our very first podcast here:

It's kind of exciting and we'd love feedback, so anyone who's remotely interested, please check it out!!
