    Thanks Zannah! Looking at the dates and my calandar the only one I would recommend we change is Friday Oct 4...that's opening night for ROTS 3-D and I think that will be a big outing for us. Maybe the Monday after?

    (and I think you need to edit your header in the post to change it to 2013 :))

    We will be reading Star Wars: Crucible by Troy Denning on August. And seeing how he is 11's boyfriend, I hope she shows up and gives her two credits on the book.
    :)

    As for the others, keep voting! And thanks!

    Got my next schedule at work and looks like I'll be there Feb 1st for the Scoundrels discussion (I know everyone was worried :)). For the record I will NOT be dressing up like Han Solo but I will wear one of my many Han T-shirts.

    It sure did Zannah, don't worry-- I speak Yoda. Yeah, I don't live in Jeff county so I can't check out the Star Wars AudioBooks they have; and you all know how much I love audiobooks! So, if anyone is a member, hook a brotha up.

    And Yay Mika! So, Mika-- you had asked if Zahn could write a heist book better than Allston's Mercy Kill. I expect your thoughts on the answer. Should be a good discussion.

    I know lets set a trap and see if we can find out who it is.

    I nominate General Ackbar as the head of task force "ti's a trap" to find these villainous scum who keep getting Mika's miniatures.

    I just hope he doesn't recruit to many bothans for this quest.

    Looking forward to Friday, as always-- but sadly I'm going to have to keep my appearance short. Have to drive out of town for family reasons.
    Really interested to hear what others thought of the book, so I won't prepare any detailed notes or anything.
