    For the last 10 years, psychologist Sam Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. By exploring our private worlds (desks, bedrooms, even our clothes and our cars), he shows not only how we showcase our personalities in unexpected - and unplanned - ways, but also how we create personality in the first place, communicate it to others, and interpret the world around us.

    If you would not snoop through a persons personal belonging this is not a book for you. I am very disapointed that I used my credit for this. I thought it would be a book about personality.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Game of Thrones is to books what LOST is to television series. George RR Martin's day job is TV writer. He begins by writing three books that really suck you in. You will become very attached to all of the many characters. After that, be warned: the story does not resolve. You will get a dream sequence when you want plot resolution. You will get three new characters and their back story when what you want desperately to know what happens to the character you just read a thousand pages about. Just because half of one of the first books is spent on a character central to the plot does not mean you will ever find out what happens to that character. On the other hand, characters you don't care about at all because they have no bearing on the past or future plot will get 5 chapters. Some characters just disappear.
    My husband and I watched six seasons of LOST. It nearly gave me high blood pressure that the events of the first three seasons had nothing to do with the second three. I wanted to pull my hair out when the plot lines that drew me in were never revisited. I wanted to scream when a new character was introduced instead of seeing an existing characters story to it's end. My husband did not seem to care as much and was happy with the
