Game of Thrones and Students

Thanks to etacar11, we’ve read this column at the Washington Post which name-checks A Game of Thrones in the course of advising parents not to worry if their teenagers are voracious readers of fantasy.As the article notes, the fact that these students are reading with any kind of gusto is a great thing, and attempting to force them to enjoy “serious literature” such as Moby Dick or Silas Marner at too young an an age is really, truly, likely to lead to “readicide”.
