The fifth book in the “Game of Throne” series by George R.R. Martin, Dances With Dragons, was released yesterday, and I’m still waiting for my goddamn pre-ordered copy from Amazon.com. It distresses me not to be the first of all of my friends to begin reading it, although I am comforted by two things:
1. I’m still the best.
2. Matt Dreyer™, who was tempted to storm Barnes & Noble with a Pitchfork eight hours before midnight on Monday to get the book early, was offered a free copy by a friend in the publishing industry. Rather than letting him come pick it up from her office, however, she MAILED it to him, which means that he’ll never get it, and I win.
Has anyone else started it yet? I am dying!
