I just finished A Storm of Swords!
If you don’t know, this is the third book in the mega series Game of Thrones, written by George R.R. Martin.
I listened to it via audiobook and it is 48 hours long. Is it childish to feel like it is a huge boost to my ego to have finished the first three books in this series? Its nothing tens of thousands, perhaps millions, haven’t done already – that and more. After all, Martin has released 5 books in the series thus far.
And yet 48 hours is a huge commitment to one book and it is an accomplishment. To be one among many does not diminish the time or effort I spent, just as mine does not diminish another’s.
Now that I am finished it, I am ready to spend some lazy evenings on the couch, re-watching the last four seasons while I wait for the fifth to begin in a month. Can’t wait!
