As always,
YMMV

Cheers

Yes, I'm a major fan of Prime, been a prime customer since it's inception nearly. I'm like you I got it for the shipping, but certainly like the videos they added to it, I'm watching Season #4 of Fringe right now. I had no intention of starting a debate about Amazon prime, I was just wondering how Otto was able to read/borrow/rent the Game of Thrones on his Kindle? I got the impression he wasn't paying for it, since it had a time limit on it.

I think his time limit is the time he has to read it before the show starts.

For you, the advantage is that it's optional and you don't have to buy it. For me the advantage is that I use the benefits -- particularly the shipping -- several times a week and it pays for itself several times over.

Some people like to take advantage of that 2 day shipping. For more than just a DVD or whatever you buy under $20. I do most of my shopping through amazon because of that shipping.

Bleary-eyed Otto here wink.gif I've gotten to the point in the book where Ned is about to lose his head. That's not a spoiler because everyone on this thread should know about that now. If not, I apologize. Somebody pointed this out before but watching the first two seasons, and then reading the books is really kind of nice. I know exactly what the characters look so those images are fixed in my mind's eye. The books flesh out the storyline in a lot more detail than HBO does but that's a good thing. It helps me with the overall understanding of who's who and why they did, or are doing, what they are doing. Unfortunately, there's no way I can finish the first 4 books by the time my 21 days library check-out is up. I'm on a waiting list for a 2 book series so hopefully that will become available and I can continue with my quest. I'd like to finish at least the first 3 books before Series 3 ends so we'll see. I could buy the book series from Amazon for my Kindle but that's $30 or so and free is, well, free wink.gif However, reading on the Kindle Fire is a lot more enjoyable than I thought, and very convenient. The downside is that the charge on the Kindle is no where near the charge on the Kindle Paperwhite. My wife has the Paperwhite and she charges her about twice a month and she is constantly using hers. The Fire lasts about 2-3 days if you keep the WiFi off. Breaks over, back to my reading.......

I forgot to add that I'm still having a little difficulty separating Lord Bailish from Carcetti on The Wire, because the actor is the same and the characters are similar in a lot of ways.

Ok - there is something I am seriously missing here - where do you order? The web site only sells accessories and glasses, from what I can see.

I picked up a bottle from a local Chicago-area chain (Binny's) last night.



Going to drink it while watching the premiere on the 31st.

Unfortunately it's not available here on the West Coast so you'll have to give us your "official" tasting critique wink.gif

Never had thought of King Robert in terms of the Dude but upon reflection the comparison does have a certain symmetry.smile.gif
