Season 2 of A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin starts tonight on HBO, so what better time to get caught up on the story than now? You can purchase books from the series via Kobo for your BlackBerry smartphone or PlayBook, and if you've got the Kindle app side-loaded on your PlayBook, there are a slew of offerings over at Amazon you'll want to look into. No, seriously, a slew. Everything from the original books to graphic novels, TV show tie-ins, cookbooks, audio books and more. And if you're looking for wallpapers, definitely check out the wallpaper gallery to see what your fellow CrackBerry members have uploaded, and you can even find a few super hi-res images over at iMore that were uploaded by Rene Ritchie that you can use on your PlayBook.

After you're all set with the books and wallpapers, why not join a BBM group to discuss the show or books? There are a couple in the the PIN sharing forums already, or you can start your own!

Kobo supports the Playbook and the Kindle does not. So, I'll always buy from Kobo first and only if there is not other option from Amazon.

Game of Thrones is the best show on TV. The Books are even better though! Totally worth getting! Thanks CrackBerry for getting the word out.

I actually modified a couple of the free wallpapers on the HBO site so they would work in landscape and portrait modes on the playbook.

Here are the ones for house stark/targaryen for those who are interested. Stoked for tonight!

Sadly, every other tablet other than the PlayBook can actually play this show on HBO GO. It's a major irritant to me. I have sent countless emails to HBO asking why and they are ignored.

That was my first thought as well rickkel.

I haven't had any issue playing the show using HBOGO.
