My copy was waiting for me when I got up today. Now that's service!

Has anyone else who's ordered from Amazon had anything wrong with their copy? In a small section of my book, from pages 113-145, the very top of the pages look like they were cut off or something.

^ That's why I'm headed to the bookstore today. I prefer to inspect my books before purchasing rather than getting them through the mail.

Yeah, it's weird. This is the first book I've gotten from Amazon that's ever had anything wrong with it. I thought about sending it back, but it's only a tiny section and I really don't want to wait to send it back in and wait for a new copy to arrive.

And I've seen hardcovers at bookstores with the tops or sides of the pages all screwed up like this, except in those cases it was actually through the whole book. I always wondered what caused that.

Got my Kindle version last night right at midnight. *woohoo*

Of course, it seems to be missing a Table of Contents, but I'm not going to quibble too much.

The file opens on prologue? Just scroll few pages back - you'll find the maps, dedications, table of contents and such.

Nice of GRRM to add Winter Is Coming people to the dedications list ...

I just got mine for my Kobo. I was surprised by how cheaply it was going for, too, only $9.99! I've only just gotten started, but it's great "seeing" Dany and Tyrion again.

Yeap, you can tell it's A Song of Ice & Fire alright... just over 100 pages in, and someone's already lost their head.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I wonder why Alan Taylor didn't get a nomination for directing Baelor or Fire and Blood. Those were the best episodes of the season, in any category.
If Dinklage will not get the Emmy, there's something wrong with the world ...

It would be a great day for GoT to nab all the technical awards and get a Supporting Actor for Dinklage, I think that would be the most likely way for the Emmy to acknowledge GoT and save its biggest prize for Boardwalk or Mad Men

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Main Title Theme Music and Art Direction are the two additional categories where it really deserved nominations. Oh, well, it still did great, and the nom for Outstanding Drama Series is, well, outstanding.

HBO always does well at the Emmy Awards, and it really dominated this year with 104 nominations (more than twice the second place network, which is CBS with 50 nominations). HBO productions that led the way: Mildred Pierce with 21 nominations, Boardwalk Empire with 18 nominations, and Game of Thrones with 13 nominations.
