I am currently diving into both the written (spoken) and visual (TV series) of Game of Thrones. And it got me thinking...

I'm really liking Game of Thrones, and I'm only on S1E6. And I'm really trying to get caught up for the new season, which is starting tomorrow!

I also previously bought, but hadn't listened to, the first book from Audible, which is 33 hr 53 minutes to cover 73 chapters in 704 pages. I started listening to it after I started the TV show, and really enjoy how it fills in a lot of back story that they had to skim over on screen.

And that is in the first 2.5 hours of the first audiobook!

All these things make it more interesting. Anyone else reading and watching... or has read before watching or vice versa? What is your take?

I am pretty far behind in the audiobook from where I am in the TV show, and decided to try to figure out how long it was going to take me to listen to the entire published series so far (5 books). I figure I can listen to it at the gym (45 minutes, 5-7 days a week), on the way to and from work in Covington (30 minutes each way, 3 days a week), and doing chores... about 7-8 hours a week.

Breaking that down...
4273 - number of pages
344 - number of chapters
11933 (~199) - minutes (hours) of audiobooks
~25-29 - weeks it will take at 7-8 hrs/week

So, if I don't slack at all (which is unlikely)... it will take 6-7 months minimum. Wow...

I think I'll keep a counter! Where am I now...


155 / 11933 minutes. 1% done!

TV Series (10 episodes a season, S4 in production):

5 / 40 episodes. 13% done!
