What Have I Been Reading?

Right now I am in the middle of this book:

I'm enjoying it quite a bit.  Lisa Robinson has been a "rock and roll" journalist for over forty years and she has many stories to tell.  I remember most of the musical groups she talks about from the sixties and seventies and the background anecdotes are fascinating.

Here she is with Keith Richards:

Before that, I had to go back and re-read part of the "Game of Thrones" books, I had read all five of them before the HBO series began.  A couple of weeks ago they surprised a lot of the people who had read the books by changing part of the story.  I was confused!  I thought maybe I had forgotten part of the story.  So I went back and skipped through the books, looking for where it had changed.

From what I read online, some people get quite excited about this series and there are arguments between those who have read the books and those who haven't read the books.  The non-readers often get angry because the readers will leak out "spoilers" before they happen on the show.  As a reader myself, I was intrigued because they caught me off-guard.
