All 'Game of Thrones' e-books are down to £2 on Amazon (usually around £3-£5 each).

If anyone hasn't read them yet, I thoroughly recommend them, plus a decent saving on the usual price.

Can use Calibre to convert to other e-reader devices.

I recommend purchasing 'A Dance with Dragons' in 2 parts as these are £2 each instead of £12.99 for the complete book.

Hope this helps

Can use Handbrake to convert to other e-reader devices.

How does this work?

Oops sorry, meant Calibre, not Handbrake.

Calibre is a free program that converts e-book files to other file types

Wish ASOS wasn't split into 2 parts, it's not in the USA. Just another way to con money out of us :( Regardless, good deal

Thanks OP. Been wanting to start reading the series, especially as the season ended this week, so good to get a bargain. Bought the first two books and will see how I go!

I've never read the books. Are they worth reading if you have seen the TV series?

Just a heads up, you can get these from Tesco's Blinkbox books right now for £2 also, but you get 100 CC points back on each. I don't know how this works out for converting formats etc - or if you have to use their app. But it might be of use to someone, so thought I'd mention it.

Voted hot on OP's deal too btw.

WHEN IS THE WINDS OF WINTER COMING OUT.

Late 2015 alledgedly but now GRRM is saying he's doing 8 books instead of 7!

The books make the tv series look a piece of dog turd. So yes!

They're a huge investment in time but well worth it, I'd recommend the ebooks as the books will take up a lot of space on a shelf

The best way imo is read the books first and then watch tv series.
If youve obly watched TV then many of the big plot events you know, but reading the book has more detailed characters, motivations and a lot of sub plots you missed. The battles are spectacular and some of the adventures have much more about them inclyding aryas story, the iron born, the wall. Much richer experience. When it gets to a feats of crows though i.e a boy where the series is now then it starts to drag. If you want to know more about GOT then read the books, but theres also quite a lot about the history of all the familes you might find a bit dull.

Can use calibre to convert to other e-reader devices.

How does this work?
Install Calibre then install the add-on apprentice alf (this removes the DRM digital protection from the Amazon book).

Download book from Amazon onto your pc version of Kindle. Book will be stored on your pc in a Kindle directory.

Open Calibre, choose the convert book option (could be add book?), navigate to the kindle directory, choose the relevant file , convert to epub and job done.

Sounds way more complicated than it actually is....

To expand on what Gari189 said:

1. Install Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/download) - it is available FREE for Windows / OSX / Linux - it is an eBook management app (think iTunes for eBooks) - if you use it, consider making a donation to the project.
2. Download and unzip "Apprentice Alfs" Calibre plug-in (Google it) - the instructions on the blog are pretty thorough.
3. Download and install Kindle for PC and in the program download the books you have purchased. They will then reside as ".AZW" files on your PC in the "Documents\My Kindle Content" folder.
4. Drag-and-drop the ".AZW" files from the Kindle folder into Calibre - DRM is removed and you can then load the books onto your Kindle, SONY, Kobo, iPad or whatever eReader you possess.

Once you've got the necessary software loaded, any time you buy a book in the Kindle store, you can then just drag-and-drop the newest ".AZW" file into Calibre.

With my SONY reader, the limited selection of books made this a great option to get a much wider range of titles and make digitising my book collection a lot easier.

Hot on the price for Songs of Ice and Fire. Excellent books and well worth a read. If you a fan of the series it will expand on what you've seen on the TV show and if you read ahead it doesn't spoil anything (IMO) it just makes you anticipate the TV episodes more!

Was just investigating this. Looks like you can only access / download with the actual apps, so getting at the downloaded book to convert isn't a possibility. Shame, as I'd use them if I could get them into iBooks instead of their app...

Thanks for the info Arithon68.....

I have a Sony ereader, son has a Kobo ereader and daughter a Nook ereader. If you have more than one ereader in your family then Calibre is essential. Buy your book from the cheapest place then convert using calibre.

Shame about Blinkbox being apps only but I'm sure one day they will have a pc version.

That's a shame. Thanks for checking it out and posting though.

They're as boring as a dogs ass... the tv show is good though.
