Hbo wants people watching the show and doesn't want the book giving anything away. Watch how the book will drop after the last season is over.

“The Winds of Winter is next, then I’ll decide what comes after that – whether it’s to go on to A Dream of Spring, the last one, or whether I switch back into Fire and Blood II, do another Dunk and Egg story or two. But I’ll worry about that one thing at a time – that’s too far ahead.”

I know I will be getting Fire and Blood for Christmas and it seems like a truly legit read. Can't wait to get my hands on it. It's not TWoW but nothing ever will it seems.

About 200 pages into Fire and Blood and I think the only reveal is

(it isn't major and will have no impact on anything we see in the show and any future books but feel free not to read what is next)

the origin of the 3 dragon eggs that Dany receives back in GoT.

It's a history book of the Targaryen reign in Westeros. It's mightily boring (only in the sense that nothing is "new") and I just pointed out the only thing in 200 pages that I can easily connect to the main story. I'm sure some of the true fanatics will find it more interesting but for me TWOIAF is a better history book because it contains more legends and tales from Essos.

Mind I've still got about 500 pages left so it might improve.

finally read about Good Queen Alysanne's visit to the Wall. Not sure if I can classify a few pages as improving the entire thing but let's just say the magic of the Wall is very strong.

Apparently there will need to be a Part 2 of this book.

Assuming GoT starts on April 21st, 2019 which is Easter Sunday, then if you want to watch one episode a day to catch up on the series, you'd need to start a rewatch on Februray 10th. That's 70 days from the 21st.

Well I finished F&B and I have decided that the Targaryens are boring unless part of their story intersects with the North and other areas of legend.

The book leaves off about 250 years before Robert's Rebellion so I know there are some events (Summerhall) and people (Dunk and Egg) that are left out.

Certainly what happened to the Mad King would be more interesting than 90% of the last 700 pages I just read.

There's a theory that Littlefinger didn't actually die but that he got a faceless man of Braavos to stand in for him while he escaped. It's a bit out there, but I like it.

1-4 this season will be the battle(s) against the walkers and 5 and 6 will be tying everything up amongst the living/wrapping up the overall story

Two episodes tying up what happens to the living would be torture. It would be like reading AFFC and ADWD all over again.

Probably could re-read them now and still wait four years after you finish to get it.

Though, I do believe that we'll get book six almost immediately after the end of season 8. If they were smart, the episode airs on Sunday, and at the end of the credits they throw up a title card that says

"Winds of Winter Available This Friday at Your Local Bookstore"

Keep all copies at the office and send em out first thing Monday morning. Would be an amazing way to do things.
