     My obsession with Game of Thrones has grown recently. I started out watching the tv show, and now I've undertaken the monumental task of reading the books (seriously, they're massively detailed). But the thing of it is, I can't just read a book. If I'm gonna read, I'm gonna READ. I'm talking staying up late every night, time slipping away as I say to myself "Just one more chapter..." over and over again. 

    But that's not the worst of it. When I'm spending so much time reading a series, and even more time thinking about it during the rest of my waking hours, things can start to get...intense. The book starts to bleed out into real life, until I see it everywhere and the line between this world and the fictional one start to blur. I'm like a method actor, completely immersing myself in the story and the characters. Only I'm a method...reader. Which leads to awkward moments like this...

Or like this...

Or even this.'s pretty bad.
