    A suggestion to those who have not read the books: do not, under any circumstances, visit a GoT website where internet douchebags frequent. Spoilers abound for this season, and I would hate for anyone to have the show wrecked. Honestly, I would avoid GoT YouTube videos, or, at the very least, not even scroll low enough to see comments.

    I ended up reading all of the books after season one ended. Took me most of August to do it. it's probably the best way to go.

    Book three is fantastic. If they hit the right marks this season, it will be the best so far. All I can say is wow.

    A Storm of Swords is my favourite, too. This season can't come soon enough.

    Im only on Book 1 so have no idea what happens beyond Season 2. However, does anyone know how many episode there will be this season and how much of the third book is being filmed for Season 3. I also heard at some point two books run on the same timeline with different characters and will be intrigued as to how they deal with that in the seasons to come.

    I believe that Book 3 will be covered in seasons 3 and 4 of the TV show. It's still 10 episodes per season.
    Books 4 and 5 both share the same timeline. Not sure how they are implementing that into the TV show. If they continue 2 seasons per book, then the author has 6 years to get book 6 done. At current pace, that MAY happen.

    Ciaran Hinds! Is just about any notable British/Irish TV actor getting on board this series? When's Dominic West showing up?

    He's busy on "The Hour," which is another really good British drama.

    I can hardly wait. This is going to a heck of a season. I only wish it was more than 10 episodes :) But hey, you can't win them all.
