Please read the books. If you are on the fence get in there and try them out. The story is much more detailed and character's motives are properly explained through their thoughts and the extra depth provides more logical actions.

I just finished Book 1 and already feel like I have so much more context on the series than I did before. Looking forward to jumping into Book 2.

After the current season is the tv show caught up with the books then? If not, how much would you guess remains?

I'm itching to read but i love the tv show so much i am afraid of spoiling it.

Re: Should we read? (poll)

some plots are slightly ahead, some plots are behind, some plots are completely different, deleted, or new.

Should be on average about about book level after the season, but very different.

I was going to wait until the TV series ended before reading the books but from what I heard the TV series have caught up with the books, To the book readers: no worries about spoilers if that's true?

See the above post, they are basically at the same point with some minor adjustments as far as pace. That said there are now some major differences in the plots and some characters/plotlines in the books that have just been completely removed from the show.

Imo the books at this point are a much superior product. The only reason to not read is laziness.

Isn't that why audio books were invented?

I will read the books but only once the show is finished. The reason being I will still get just as much enjoyment from reading the books even after watching the show while I won't be able to enjoy the show as much as I do if I were to read the books first.

Re: Should we read? (poll)

I watched the first season of the show, and then read all 5 books in the course of 2 weeks. I recommend reading them, but there are some chapters that are a bit of a slog. Particularly Sansa's in the first 2 books.
