About 180 copies of A Dance With Dragons shipped from the German Amazon site before the error was corrected. Spoilers have reportedly started to leak as a result. Although this is a spoiler thread for the series, please don't post any spoilers for the fifth book here until a reasonable length of time has passed after its official release date.
Westeros.org had a spoiler thread today which was filled with huge spoilers, but then the whole ADWD forum was hidden until the book actually comes out. There are spoilers on 4chan (how surprising) and probably everywhere where there's a slight possibility of ASOIAF discussion.
It will be very difficult to avoid spoilers in places where the moderation isn't that strict or Facebook/Twitter and such. Once the book really comes out, I think it'll be better to open a thread dedicated solely to ADWD and don't post any spoilers here or even hints at spoilers.
