HBO's Game of Thrones fantasy drama series will return in 2012 with the second season, based on the second book. If you didn't know, the first season was based on the first book in the series, which George R. R. Martin published in 1996. Just this past March, the novel became available in paperback, and that's today's giveaway!
This whopper of a book is over 700 pages, and was #1 on the New York Times bestseller list last month. And, since you have a few months before the second season begins, this will give you a chance to enjoy the book that started it all, giving you a better understanding of the brilliance behind the show.
