By now I am pretty sure that A Song of Ice and Fire Book Five, A Dance With Dragons, is now out in all countries and all formats on the planet.
I don't track international or foreign editions, so excuse my ignorance if you're still waiting for the book in some or form where you live.
It exists as an audio book. It exists as an ebook. It exists in hardback. It exists in softcover (in some countries, split into subsequent volumes).
In short, all the editions should be out by now. Since 'winter is coming' in exactly one month (and Christmas shortly after) I should also remind you that the first four books (as well as obviously the most recent one. George is working on the next book) are now out in all formats as well, allowing yourself or whoever you're buying for an easy catch-up in the series.
Although, waiting for things can be painful so I don't blame you if you're waiting for the final book to come out before even buying the series.
The best value of the series: (ISBN captioned with corresponding book). These are the US editions by Bantam. The UK softcover editions by Harper Voyager are as nice also.
Next Thursday (the 28), The Ottawa Senators will reveal a new heritage jersey to be worn against the Vancouver Canucks in B.C on March 2. I'll post again once the jersey has been "officially unveiled".
I haven't seen any episodes yet (it is on my Netflix list) but AMC's series Hell on Wheels was just renewed for a 4th season. Better than that - it went from 10 episodes for the season to 13. With Breaking Bad ending a few months ago, and Mad Men on its way out, this looks to be AMC's new flagship series.
Speaking of TV, where am I at?
Season 3 of Breaking Bad
Season 5 [final] of Damages (once I finish that I'll start up Hell on Wheels)
Watching Big Bang and Shield week by week.
Once Boardwalk Empire finishes its 4th season, I'll start watching that season. Likewise in March with Walking Dead.
