I just discovered a huge drawback to paperbacks. I purchased 'Storm of Swords' the other day, gloatingly, then took it home and started reading. Halfway through, I happened to glance at the cover (they made Tyrion look way too old, I think, and if that was the Hound on the cover he looks way too impressive) and found that they've done the 'Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn' thing and divided the book in two, so what I had bought was actually only 'Storm of Swords: Part One'. Grrr. I wouldn't mind so much if they put both parts on the shelf, at the same time, but I don't see why I should wait months more just because I can't afford to buy hardbacks.
