Also, I really love that I can actually talk with people about my interest now. As an example, I've been reading A Song of Ice and Fire since 2000, and every time I used to bring it up the conversation died quickly. With HBO making Game of Thrones now, I finally get to talk about this fantasy book series with people in my life. I never dreamed that I would be able to make George R.R. Martin jokes with my co-workers.
(PS: The joke in question - Why does George R.R. Martin not use Twitter? Because he killed all 140 characters.)
