I started Game of Thrones yesterday after I read all your positive responses to this series. It's been on my to read list, for years but the upcoming series inspired me to get it started. I hope it lives up to the hopes you've given me.
Its a very good book, but it took me far longer to read it then a BL book of similar length. It uses a small font text and i'd estimate that each page text length is worth two of a BL book. So while its around 810 pages of story I would say if the text was enlarged it might come to over 1600. So it took me quite a long time to get it done, i'd estimate around 3-4 weeks.
