Bonus double-post day, because it's just that important. George R.R. Martin just released an excerpt from the 6th book in the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series, "Winds of Winter".

Hopefully this is a sign the next book is coming out soon! And if anyone reading is a fan of the show but hasn't read the books, do. If not, you're definitely missing out.
