There are numerous ways to read A Song of Ice and Fire I have done the research. I would like to read the 4th and 5th books simultaneously but I read that you can read A Knight of Seven Kingdoms before A Dance With Dragons. Would it be OK to read A Knight of Seven Kingdoms before A Feast For Crows and then read book 4 and 5 simultaneously?

    Yes, they're not directly correlated. However reading 4&5 simultaneously is futile, just read 4 then 5. Commented Jan 5, 2016 at 16:27

I recommend reading the books in their order of publication, it would then acknowledge the intent of GRRM and partake of the commonality of experience of his multitudinous readers. First read of course; mix it up later if achieving chaos or some other goal is sought.
