Do Not Disturb

I blame my daughter.
She came home last summer and read all the books.  HBO offered a freebie, and I watched two episodes.
"Ignore the naughty bits" my daughter urged, knowing me.  Once I did I was captivated by the complicated plot line and the complexity of characters. Pick up the novels and they are even more layered.  You hate someone, and a thousand pages later you have such understanding you are now rooting for them


I devoured Tomes 1, 2 and 3.  I briefly thought of quitting my job, ignoring my family, renouncing my worldly possessions and aspirations to continue Books 4 and 5.  Then I realized there are two more books planned, and it took George R R Martin 5 years to complete the most recent.

If I'm not posting, you'll know I'm savoring every page of this epic called "Game of Thrones."


  1. Maybe it's just me, but if you don't have children, cable and work from home, you can find yourself getting behind. I only recently found out what ganham(?) is.

  2. I started at he first one, but I just couldn't get into it. I'm getting too cranky.

  3. AH: I am grateful for M as a counter-weight--I am a bit besotted and an unreliable source.
    PA--it's why we need to mingle with younger people occasionally-to realize the high 5 has segued into the fist bump.

    1. True enough, it is nice to know things like, "the high 5 has segued into the fist bump."

    2. Sadie Bea, you ARE sophisticated.

  4. "You hate someone, and a thousand pages later you have such understanding you are now rooting for them...because they are cute."

  5. This has been on my "I think maybe I might like to read this someday" list for quite some time. You just moved it up a notch, but then Margaret moved it right back down. So, maybe, perhaps, someday. If there weren't so many of them.

  6. FB just alerted me to you having an account - so now, all you have to do is Friend me then you can peek into my fabulous life

  7. Wow five years to write one book. Sounds interesting, not a big reader but I might check it out.
