We've been talking in the Game of Thrones TV series thread about starting a discussion thread for the books. Well, here it is!
We're going to try to keep discussion of the books and the TV series as separate as possible.
I know that some FoRTers have read the first four books and some (like me) have only just started, so I'm not sure how we want to handle "spoilers." Technically, as soon as the book is published, we don't consider it a spoiler any more, but I'd like to be sensitive to posters who still want to discuss the books even if they haven't finished them all yet.
Maybe we can start every post with which book we've read through? That way, if someone hasn't read to that point, they can scroll past that post.
For instance, I would post Book 1 at the beginning of each post....for now. I'm looking forward to starting A Clash of Kings later this week. I have to read another book for my book club first. It's torture not to pick up book 2!
If anyone has other suggestions, please feel free! We can, of course, use spoiler tags if we want, but a whole thread with ALL spoiler tags might be a bit ridiculous!
