how many copies have you ?

10 posts in this topic

I bought a Kindle a couple of weeks ago- I thought that my pdf versions of the novels would read OK on the thing but I was wrong.  So tonight I went and purchased the five books in proper Kindle format for that device.  Prior to that I bought the five novels in paperback format in a nice box set.   Prior to that I bought each novel as each came out - in paperback except for Dance - I had to buy that in hardback as I couldn't wait for paperback.  That cost a bit more needless to say.  So, to date, I have bought 3 copies of each book plus the World of book (what a great visual feast of Ice & Fire that one is) and also the 3 novels of Dunk & Egg. 
I love you GRRM, Happy Birthday and Merry Holidays :)

How about you all - how many copies have you in your possession?

Fewer than before. I sometimes get missionary about my favorite books and force them on people.

What? You haven't been buying the Special Illustrated Anniversary Editions as they've come out? What about the comic books??

(Note - I have only the box set of paperbacks - Costco edition - and borrowed the funny book editions of GoT from the library)

3 copies of AGOT, 1 copy of the other novels.

First, I bought the 1-4 paperback boxed. I got ADWD once it also came out in paperback.

After hearing me talk about ASOIAF all the time, a friend thought it would be a good idea to give me a paperback copy of AGOT for my birthday. What? I already have a copy, but okay, thanks. The friend also gave me a copy of Wit&Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister.

Later, I saw a bunch of ASOIAF books on sale and couldn’t resist. I got the illustrated AGOT, and World of Ice and Fire.

I read D&E on some website that I can’t remember now.

I have one of each book, though ACoK, ASoS and AFFC have fallen apart and I have to put the pages back when I'm done reading or searching for something. I'm waiting for all seven books so that I can get a nice box set. 

I did not get the Rogue Prince, the Princess and the Queen (though I've listened to the audio on YouTube) or Sons of the Dragon because I know I won't be reading the other stories, so I'm waiting on Fire and Blood.

Got one copy of the world book, and I have A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

I have the five books in the cheap paperbacks which I can no longer read without having a roll of tape handy. Sometimes I’m reinforcing every page. I’d like a set of hardbacks, but spending that much on new books seems pointless when the series isn’t complete yet as I like matching sets. I also like to mark up my books, so I’m also loath to upgrade for that reason.

I’m mostly only interested in the books proper, but I did buy TWOIAF because it was so pretty and I know it’ll seem more relevant as we get further into the series. The rest I either got from the library or haven't read yet.

SAME! 
my 1st purchased paperbacks are all taped up to stay together, spines totally cracked and pages hanging out all over the place.

Just one of each. 

If the series is ever finished I'll be sure to purchase the sexiest available set possible.

0 of GoT (gave my copy to a friend)
1 of CoK
1 of SoS
0 of A Nap for Crows (got an old copy from a friend who bought one of the special editions and gave it away later as well)
0 of A Wait without Dragons (borrowed it)

I refuse to buy new copies of the books I (no longer) own until the series is finished. Same with secondary literature relating to Westeros. Should I feel the desperate need to read the first book there's always a couple of friends who'd lend me theirs.
And should I ever feel the need to read FFCDWD again...wait, no, that will never happen.
