It was 2005 when I became a fan. I was in need of books to read so headed to our charity shop. AGOT and ACOK were there, one for 2.50 GBP and 3.50 GBP respectively. I had never heard of the series before but I figured, that it was not too pricey to give a chance. I normally whizz through books that I enjoy and I found that i was reading about 3 chapters an hour for AGOT which I saw as slow. It wasn't until I hit the Bran incident, that I realised how much I was enjoying it, and after that chapter I was hooked. I got the Third off amazon and was lucky enough that when I finished it, Feast was launched so headed to Glasgow for a signed copy.

I have since introduced 4 people to Westeros. I got the bonus benefit of a link on your website to a webzine and found Tad Williams' Memory Sword and Thorn Trilogy. Another author I had never heard of before but when it came to me moving to Ireland, I only kept those two sets of books, the rest were put in recirculation.

23 Million is not completely understandable. How does it compare to books sold? Even if the 8K fans on LJ checked one a week for 3 years, that is 1.2 million. I find that I rarely check the website now as more information is given here, as well as your insights and such like.
