It's driving me nuts, emblazoned with the words SPOLIER DO NOT READ and presenting a serious test of my will power grin

Its like sitting in front of a massive red button which says DO NOT PRESS...

And I can't even hide it because to do that I'd have to open it and then I've got absolutely bloody no chance of getting out without reading at least the OP <is weak>

I've dithered for months about whether I should read the books because I love the TV series and I've decided to just watch the series because I like not knowing what is going to happen, for once, [I always read the books and ruin everything on TV/Film for myself] but this is reeeaaaaalllllllly testing me grin

YABU - hide it and just crack on with reading the books. Series is good but pants in comparison to the books.

You have done very well, typing with your nose there. grin

I looked.

I'm nearly finished book one. Probably have book 2 read by Sunday.

Basically everyone has sex then everyone dies. Spoiler alert.

The spoiler is about something in book 5 which may never get made into a tv series, especially not with2 books left to be written.

If you read the thread and don't read the books, you'll forget it anyway before series 5 is made. <helpful>

Anyway book 3 is much more dramatic.

YANBU OP. I'm reading the books after I watch each telly series and that thread is driving me crazy.

ScarlettInSpace Fri 12-Apr-13 16:09:52

Series is good but pants in comparison to the books that's why I decided not to read them, cos I know I'll ruin the series iykwim...

skaen that actually is helpful, it takes the edge off the urge to read it grin

<frees hands from under arse, and nose from keyboard>

Basically everyone has sex then everyone dies fab summary! Could also apply to Spartacus, but I think they do it more at the same time...

I've read all the completed books and it doesn't spoil my enjoyment of the TV series. With something like that I like to know what is likely to happen.

YAB a little U because it is possible to hide threads.

YANBU to think that it should be in the Adult Fiction topic.

YABVU to not read books because they will be too good.

You can hide threads straight from Active Conversations, you don't need to click.

Aha trills I didn't know that, I'll go have a look, thank you!

I just decided I like not knowing what is going to happen for once, I'm sure my resolve will disappear completely soon enough.

squeaky well done on rationing the books, once I start to read a book series I have to keep going to the end. Maybe I'll just try to hold out on the GoT Books until the series is complete...

;P to RTFB

BruthasTortoise Fri 12-Apr-13 16:20:54

At the rate the series and GRR Martin are moving the series is going to catch up with the books long before the final book is ever written so you'll have plenty of time to catch up with the novels smile

YANBU - I'm sitting on my hands as I've only just started the 2nd part of the 3rd book and loathe the tv series due to sex overkill (so to speak!). I'd forgotten about the hide button though blush

bettycocker Fri 12-Apr-13 16:28:43

Sorry, I started that thread. I didn't bank on all the spoilers, I'm having to pretend to DP that I am surprised at the storyline now. We borrowed series 1 and 2 and have been watching it every evening.

You'll get no spoilers from me Scarlett. grin

Book good

TV series. . . . not so good (but not bad)
