You're welcome to join the club then. Before the TV series came out I had never heard of the books, I only started to read them last year.

You definitely aren't alone in that. I saw the first episode, and still didn't realise it was a series until I saw it in the book shop Considering how well received it is, and that it was first published in 1996, I was amazed I hadn't heard about it before. English was always my favourite subject in school, continued it on into college, and still nothing. I read a lot of fantasy stuff, Tolkien, Pullman, Garth Nix, Jonathan Stroud etc etc and still didn't hear about it. Maybe it was only really a big thing in the states until the show hit.

Wait, are these paperback copies of ADWD, if so what was the sample chapter inside? I thought that the paperback version was released August 28th.
