    My favorite line between Kyp and Jaina in Dark Journey has to be "You couldn't channel the Force wearing that dress. There isn't enough room in there for it to squeeze through". Actually I like the whole exchange in that scene between Kyp and Jaina! Soo much angst and banter, it's great! You can just feel the tension between both of them.

    Funny, I actually really enjoyed Courtship of Princess Leia. Why? I love the planet full of Women and men as their 'slaves'. My fav scene is when Luke is being taken and his last thoughts are the image he is given, of him being for 'breeding purposes!' Kills me! :p

    Courtship of Princess Leia was one of the first novels I read along with Shadows of the Empire, and the Thrawn Trilogy. From there the EU opened up before me.

    On a sidenote going back to Dark Journey and Jaina for a minute, have you read the short story also by Elaine Cunningham titled "The Apprentice". The events of this short story unfold at the same time as the main story from Dark Journey and we explore a bit of Jaina's Apprenticeship to Jedi Master Kyp Durron. It's a must read for any NJO fans!

    Anybody who knows enough about me knows to expect the X-wing series to come out as an answer... Apart from those, I would have to say The Jedi Academy Trilogy and whatever is written by Zahn.

    Which reminds me, I believe Outbound Flight was supposed to come out in October last year, did it or did it get pushed back?

    LOL nice... I finally decided to go ahead and buy myself the first four books from the X-Wing seres. Now all I miss is 5, 6, 7, and 8 before I have all nine... So that's one person less checked those books out of the municpal library.

    *hears those who are on the waiting list to get them cheer*

    It's so true, they are some of the hardest to get your hands on at the library. They're always out. Them and the NJO books.

    Congrats on your buy! :D I know how much that series means to you!

    I went to Chapters today and they didn't have Triple Zero! :( I was hoping they may have put it out on the shelf a week early but no luck! Oh well I'll go back next week! :)
