So at what point in the books will we be after the finale? I kinda want to read from that point on. I tried starting at the beginning once and just couldn't get excited while reading because so much was the same.

The show is currently in about the middle of book 3. But you'd need to start from the beginning of book 3 because it jumps around a bit in it.

Thanks rodeo. That's what I was looking for. Pie for you.

if i'm recommending a general place for a show watcher to start, i think Clash of Kings is the first book different enough to really be a unique experience from the show. season 1 is pretty faithful to the first book even as far as taking a lot of the dialogue right from it. season 2 starts to deviate a lot and you get a way better picture from the book of a lot of characters, like Renly (who absolutely owns Stannis in their encounter which is left out of the show) and Loras and others.

 

You can start at book 3 if you really don't care about Renly, or who Robb really married, or that it's only strongly implied that Stannis cheats on his wife.

that's a terrible idea since the books and show are so much different

 

although there is a split version of book 3 out now, part 1 and part 2 of asos

If I had watched this episode with Porn Shop Clerk this is how I imagine he'd be looking at me, waiting for my reaction.
