Bah! I could have sworn that A Feast for Crows, the fourth book in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series was supposed to come out this summer (July?), at least from what I gathered from when I almost pre-ordered it from Amazon a couple days ago. Now multiple official sources say that it comes out November 8th - two days after my seventeenth birthday.
At least that means I probably don't have to hold onto soccer reffing (my 'job') money until then, because I should have money from my birthday. Humbug. Guess I'll put off re-reading the first three books until close to the fall as well, and tackle the stack on my desk, remaining from who-knows-when.
