"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share a few teaser sentences from somewhere on that page.

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

     She looked at Arya. "What did you think of Prince Joff, sister? He's very galant, don't you think?"
     "Jon says he looks like a girl," Arya said.
     Sansa sighed as she stitched. "Poor Jon," she said. "He gets jealous because he's a bastard."
     "He's our brother," Arya said, much too loudly. Her voice cut through the afternoon quiet of the tower room.

Many of you have probably either watched or heard of the HBO series Game of Thrones.  Well in case you didn't know that series is based on a fabulous book, which is actually the 1st in a seven book series (the last 3 haven't been published yet) titled A Song of Fire and Ice.  This is high fantasy and set in the mythical world of Westros which feels a lot like medieval England.  It is such an engrossing book, I can't put it down!!!
