Should I read GoT before watching the TV series? Was planning on doing both eventually.
I'm watching the entire TV series (all seasons, whenever that completes) before reading the books b/c I wanted to appreciate it as a TV show first (just to appreciate it from that medium), and then read the books after the show is complete. This is a minority opinion, though. A lot of people I know watched the first season, and then in the interim read all the books. Or you could watch through the second season (going on now), and then take the 10 month hiatus from any GoT TV glory to read the books so you don't get too starved from greatness. (I may end up caving to this latter option this summer...)
