    Yep, once again I've gotten my hot little hands on one of the new Star Wars books.

    As usual, if you're in the Canberra area and want to get reading, head to Dymocks Belconnen because they have them available now.

    Anyone living outside of Canberra, start looking at the major bookstores, because they very well could have them on their shelves now.

    Jeez. If I buy it, I'll read it. I won't be able to stop myself. I'm just going to have to wait it out. That way it'll be cheaper at K-Mart, and I'll still be spoiler free.

    Thanks for the heads up though. I'll keep an eye open for it.

    Already started into chapter 2.

    I'm going to head off now to read as much of it as I can. I got two calls this morning, one from work asking me to come in at 1:30pm, then the call from Dymocks.

    God I wish I got them the other way around.

    I will not buy this novelisation and read it before Aotc...

    Oh wait...I can't afford it...this must be the only time I've been HAPPY about that. :D

    Wow, that Dymocks at Belconnen is great, I've been there the few times I have been to Canberra in recent years, they have so many sci-fi novels it is unreal :D

    I don't think I will buy the AOTC book, because I will probably do what I did with TPM and read it before I see the movie.

    Did I say I was spoiler free for Episode 2?


    I meant, I'm going spoiler free for Episode 3!


    GIMME GIMME GIMME!



    Hmmmm. Decisions decisions decisions...


    On the one hand, I read LOTR and was still in awe at FOTR... spoiling it didn't ruin the movie much.


    On the other hand ... um er ...

    Um ...


    er ...

    Well, I guess I'll console myself by buying some advance tickets.

    I'm sure that if I bought it, I WOULD be able to resist the temptation to read it.

    But I still can't afford it. :(

    I followed the quick and easy path.

    Bought the book today.

    Will read it today.

    Well, I was already spoiled enough anyway.

    I'll just go spoiler free for E3...


    Honest!

    Trust me Oz, you'll enjoy it. The only problem is that I'm now more eager than ever to see it up on the big screen.

    Well, I must have been well and truly spoilered, because I read it and there wasn't that many big surprises in it for me ... not even when -

    *feels a FanForce choke*


    Actually, for me, the real nuggets weren't really the big plot points, but the little things.


    What i want to know is, how much of it will be in the movie, though? I remember there was a lot of things in TPM that weren't in the movie...


    As for visualising, i've seen visuals of most of the characters and locations and scenes etc, so it was easy to visual most of it...


    grrrrrr


    SPOILER FREE FOR NUMBER THREE THOUGH!!

    PROMISE!!
