  2. Amazing Book Deals

    Yup. I'm actually going the other way, converting epub to kindle format. Paperwhite > simple touch, IMO
  3. Amazing Book Deals

    Calibre. You can convert any number of formats any which way. And, it's a really nice app for organizing your ebook library...
  4. Wex

    Wex is just a catalyst. And given the situation he was in, it's not beyond the realm of possibility that everything went down the way Wex and Manderly say. The important takeaway here is that Davos is coming for Rickon.
  5. How would you rate episode 303?

    Best of the 3 so far - taking nothing away from the first two...
  6. Best/Worst Named Characters

    Any best named characters list starts and ends with Dickon and Aenys.
  7. The Hooded Man new (?) theory...(possible spoilers)

    Exactly. Bran's encounter with the Liddle seems somewhat random if that is the only time we are to come across the character. Combine that with the initial description of six 'young and pretty' girls that later turn into 5 'young and pretty' girls and Mance's 'old mother'. Compared with some of the other Hooded Man theories, I like entertaining this one more...
  8. Best ASOIAF Villains?

    I struggle to categorize Theon as an outright villain. There are so many layers to his situation, I almost prefer putting him and Jaime in a class of their own. Both have done despicable things, but at their core, I believe both have a conscience that they are sometimes at odds with, while other times actually do the good and honorable thing. Bottom line, brilliant characters...
  9. Rickon, the Black Wolf.

    Definitely not evil. He clearly has a trace of his uncle Brandon's personality, which might make him more hot headed, but I can't see him being the type to take pleasure in hurting people the way Joff and Ramsey do. He will, however, be a Stark Lord fit for winter, the kind the North needs for the times in which he'll live - tough and uncompromising, a hark back to the old Kings of Winter...
  10. If that's the case, I wonder what happens when the TV series catches up with the books. Maybe that motivates GRRM to finish the novels in a more timely manner (without sacrificing quality). Let's not forget the extra pressure to meet deadlines now - more popularity in the series = more money on the line = far greater expectations...
  11. Want to have an avatar/user pic? Read this thread.

    argh. Using Gravatar, but when i save changes, nothing happens...
  12. Who will win the battle of Winterfell?

    Agreed. The Bolton's have been on borrowed time for quite a while. Plus, given the fact that they only inspire loyalty through fear, most, if not all of their bannermen will jump ship the second they get an opportunity...
