i don't think there's anything you could cut from the series to abridge it and make it better.

maybe if you just wanna read about tyrion and jon snow all day.

they cut what they could from the first novel for the tv series, and it suffered for it. hell they even added more material that wasn't in the books.

that's awesome. some damn good books on there.



If you spent the next year(or two) reading nothing but the books on that chart you would be doing yourself a huge favor.

There are a few on there that I don't care for but are important works none the less and I'm glad I read them.
