Bought Dance with Dragons, but haven’t started it yet. There’s a good 1500+ intervening pages, as I still want to read through the second half of Storm of Swords and Feast for Crows to remember what’s going on in Westeros.
Dance with Dragons got heavy promotion in Akateeminen Kirjakauppa, it’s not often that english hardbacks are pushed so hard (only the latter Harry Potters and Dan Brown’s novels exceeded this).
There’s no word for the home-release of Game of Thrones yet, but considering the reception of the show, HBO’s certainly slavering over the potential revenue from the dvd/bluray-releases.
Noted that I’ve recently acquired quite a few interesting links to Song of Fire and Ice-related pages. Will start on posting them soonish. And also try to note whether they carry spoilers either for the books and/or television show (which will be broadcast by YLE in 2012).
