Well, this is a thread for Star Wars book maniacs, (like me) who enjoys reading a lot of SW literature.

So, what are you reading?

Personally, I'm reading Coruscant Nights I: Jedi Twilight by Michael Reaves. I really adore Reaves' novels.

"It is known that there are infinite number of worlds, simply because there is infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so average population of all planets in Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that population of whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of deranged imagination."

I've just started reading - Han solo at Stars End. It is very well written, but a bit drawn out. I read somewhere that it was the second piece of Star Wars Expanded Universe literature to be printed. I guess that makes it a rare book. I received it from my mother when i was younger and took it for granted untill i came of the age to realy start enjoying reading, then i started it and thought that it was non-canon and stopped. I regret that now and am happy to know that there is two sequels. I'm not sure what they are, but I would very much like to find out.
I have also just finished Death Troopers by Joe Scheibler. Excellent book and very, very well written. I could barely put it down and it had my on the edge of my seat. I recommend it to someone who likes Star Wars and a bit of "Blue Harvest".
I hope everyone is happy and well!

Well I just finished reading the Jedi Academy Trilogy a few weeks ago and then just finished now Darksaber. Not sure what I should read next, although I hear that Crosscurrent will be out soon, so I'll wait to read that.


--------------------
Let's start at the top shall we? The Sith Wars, Palpatine's Empire, Thrawn's siege, Vong invasion, Second Galactic Civil War, I could go on. Point is the enemy hasn't vanished and we're fighting new people/aliens/species every day.

This has always been a Force War and we, as non-Jedi, will still help rid the universe of their evil. That's on one side of the galaxy, on the other our friends: Luke, Han, Leia, Wedge, Iella, Corran, Mirax, etc are still trying to keep the peace. They've thwarted Abeltoth, but others will soon come their way...and ours.

We shall meet these enemies on both sides of the galaxy head on to defeat them. And when we do meet them, it'll be with the same determination, hope, and perseverance all of us have always shown.

None of this is easy as people/aliens/pets/animals are injured or die every day. But to keep the galaxy safe, we'll do all we can to win, for both sides of the galaxy. To ensure peace, we will keep fighting.

Wish us luck, wish us the Force, and pray for us as we'll need it going up against these formidable foes.



(Have been playing SW for over 17yrs--as of 2014--and I also follow the books. I will continue this role playing until I no longer can.) Also I just wanted to thank all who answered my threads and have chatted with me throughout the years; all of you are fun, awesome, caring, friendly, smart, (etc) and are my good/best friends. I will miss talking to you.

I keep trying to get into Death troopers but its kind of melodramatic to say the least. Really having a difficult time getting the initiitve to even read it.

Just finished reading Allegiance (the one that has young Mara, some stormtroopers, and Luke, Han, Leia & Chewie). It was rather uneven.

I just finished reading Crosscurrent and it was okay. It's an okay read, but not enough to really grab you. The only reason I got it is because I like the character of Jaden Korr. For some reason the idea of time travel in the SW universe set me off. From 1-10, this book would be a 4.

Seems as if nobody likes Crystal Star. I guess I should be glad I never read it.

Right now i'm reading Fate of the Jedi: Outcast. Loving it so far. Kinda started off confusing, but it quickly gets explained.

Well I thought I would be reading The Jedi's Path: A Manuel for Students of the Force (this book sounds awesome, just be prepared I heard that it's costly), said it was coming out last week. Does B&N have it? Nope, they'll have it Oct. 16. So I'm still rereading Vision of the Future and am waiting on The Force Unleashed 2 (book, not video game) to come out tomorrow. I hope they have that one!
