Feast for Crows and Dance with Dragons are much like 1 big book, and are very similar in storyline pacing. They are slow and not much happens but everything is set up to a breaking point. Winds of Winter will start out with 3 separate battles about to take place, and you can be sure characters will die.
And there isn't a reason to own them in multiple formats if they are just books to you. For me, Song of Ice and Fire is the best work of fiction ever created, whether it be book/movie/comic whatever. Nothing compares for me. For each book in the series I have one for reading, one for my collection that is in perfect condition all but ACOK signed by Mr. Martin (working on it). And I have them for my Nook to look stuff up easier when I discuss various theories on the ASOIAF forums (really the sole reason I got them on my nook.. was for use with those forums). I prefer reading a book to a Ebook, but Ebooks are still handy.
Yeah I'm a nerd.
