Quandary: I like to read everything in each category before voting on them. George RR Martin’s A Dance With Dragons landed on the novel list. I do not like to read middle books of series first (OK, exception made for Cyroburn, but I think well justified). Do I read 4200 pages of epic fantasy (unfinished epic fantasy, to boot) in the middle of “The Year of Reading Wheel of Time”? Probably, but it might be painful. At least I now know what I’ll do while the family is away.
