For those of you who HAVE read the books, can you tell me if they stay in the plot of the first book ONLY so far? I'd like to watch the show, but I'm nervous about spoiling something that's in the later books if I watch the show before reading those.
I can't think of anything. Pretty sure it's been book 1 almost right off the page so far.
Martin himself mentioned the title of the second book when he blogged about the season 2 renewal, so I think it's safe to assume they're sticking fairly close to the books.
