just ordered a game of thrones 4 book bundle for $23. hope it's as good as yaw say it is. also got day by day armageddon (1 and 2), the infection and patient zero. i've been hooked on zombie novels since WWZ. I also want to pick up EX-Heroes seems like a cool book.
The series is coming out on HBO in less than a month. So if you have trouble getting into that first book (the first 1/3rd is boring as poo) then maybe the series will help jump start your interests.
