ADWD goes beyond the timeline of AFFC and starts to continue the stories of those characters also about halfway through, and I think you could potentially spoil stuff for yourself. I just wouodn't recommend it.

And I think I know what you mean by ...
Ahh, I just thought that I could read both and finish Feast before its POV chapters pick up in ADwD... ? But it might be less confusing if I just read Feast straight through first. Idk.

Oh god, yes. I am so sad because even though it's been like 5 years since I first read ASoS, I know what's gonna happen to everyone and FUUUUUU. I'd go into detail, but I don't want to spoil it for the people here still on the earlier books.

Well, I mean, you could try and read them simultaneously. I'm still not caught up in ADWD yet, I think, but I know that there will be POV's from certain characters in ADWD that show up later that take place after AFWC (aka, Arya's and Samwell's storylines as well as some others will be continued). Your own funeral if you spoil something for yourself.

AND I think it would be a little confusing to have to keep track of like, 8 POV characters at once.

starting "Just After Sunset", a stephen King short story collection. which makes it more like candy if you just read them one after the other.

Recently completed:
The Psychology of Superheroes (on kindle)
the last 3 volumes of Stephen King's, "The Dark Tower" (hardcopy) (just to finish the set) (and back to back to boot)

Finished Death in the Afternoon. By the time I get back to school I'd like to get through:

Retromania: Pop Culture's Addiction to Its Own Past by Simon Reynolds
Watching the English: The Hidden Rules of English Behaviour by Kate Fox
Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain
I'm A Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After Twenty Years Away by Bill Bryson
Ulysses by James Joyce
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I'm also passionately thumbing through a Stockholm travel guide in planning for my next big trip and a tome called The Beer Book, that is far headier than its title suggests.

Recently finished Bleak Seasons by Glen Cook. Can't get enough of the Black Company.

Just started reading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. Liking it so far.
