So first let me say that I love fantasy books. They are without a doubt my favorite type of books to read. However, despite how many of them I've read for reasons known to no one I haven't read any of the Song of Ice and Fire books. I'm going to rectify that soon but first a question. The Blu-ray box set of Game of Thrones season 1 is coming out and if it's as good as everyone says the show is I'll probably end up buying it. So my question is should I buy the Blu-ray box set and then read the books, therefor being more surprised by the events of the first book it's based on or should I just read the books asap?
