So recently, an image macro has been making the rounds, where J.K. Rowling mentions how hard it is to kill off so many characters, with G.R.R. Martin beneath that saying "You're adorable". Besides them, there is an image of a stack of books with a tab for each person that gets killed.
From what I can tell, the entire Harry Potter series appears to have less deaths than 1 book from the ASOIAF series. But how many death does each series have, exactly? This question will handle ASOIAF, I created another question already for Harry Potter.
Just the main book series and only named deaths please. I'm not interested in movie/TV show or spin-off deaths.
