I try very hard to read everything before I watch it.
However, as I’ve been traveling (and, honestly, as I’ve *not* been traveling), virtually everyone I’ve met has had something to say along the lines of “Do you watch Game of Thrones?” “I think you’d like Game of Thrones.” “Any chance you have the latest season of Game of Thrones?”
I must admit.
It finally just piled up enough that I gave in.
I finally realized that my resistance was futile, and that I may as well come to terms with the fact that I’ll most likely be marathoning Game of Thrones within the extremely near future.
Now, to be a bit circuitous, I…pretty much always have morning shifts. I have gotten used to being up at 5:30 to be in the kitchen or up at 6:00 to do housekeeping; so, even though I may have had a day off, I still woke up at 5:00 in the morning.
I wandered through staff quarters, and what did I spy, lying out on the bookshelf?
Nothing other than “Game of Thrones, by George R. R. Martin, Book one of the Song of Fire and Ice.”
…So I guess I will read the book first.
