Just borrow the ebooks from the library. That's what I did. Didn't cost a penny. Of course, you sometimes have to wait a little while until a copy becomes available.

Well, I'm hopeful. My Mom says she can't die until she finishes the series (she's 86). I think she'd be happy if even one more book came out.

Well, let's hope the series takes a very long time to finish. Best wishes to your mother.

It all feels rather academic.
I don't think that Martin got into writing for money and fame. I think that it is a mistake that many make to think that he lacks passion for writing just because it is taking him more than a decade to complete this novel. I completely understand those frustrated with the insanely long delay.

I also don't think that all fans of the books are fans of the TV series. I'm sure there is a great deal of overlap, but not 100%. And that is kind of personal because I've read the first few novels in the saintly days of yore, but I never ever liked the show and didn't get past season one. I look forward to the day that the series is complete and I can devote a few months to reading it from beginning to end. And I will never watch the show.

And I know that fans of the show (like some of my friends) are holding out for a better ending in the books than they received in the show. So no, it is not academic. Not for Martin and not for his fans.
