    Yeah thats what I said its going to take a lot longer then I thought. So well, this is what I was thinking we will go down the list (one book at a time)and all vote on what books we should read next.

    1st Book up for discution the Jedi Apprentice book sieres :D. I, for one, love this sieres [face_love] ( I loved them so much I have been making a fan film based on them) but to be honest I think the only two book we should read are the first two they were the best, because it takes Young_Kenobi two books to become Qui_gons Apprentice.
    Its a very very cool story how it all happens and it gives us a good insight in to growing up in side the Jedi tempel.

    So my vote is not to skip this sieres but just read the first two books. They are made for a younger age group so they really shouldint take longer then, like, two weeks to someone who is used to reading full on Novels.

    SO just the first two and who knows...you mite gewt hooked. [face_mischief]

    having read the first in that series, I concur w/ Ani....sounds good (and on a personal note...can we PLEASE skip Courtship of Princess Leia. I think that is the worst SW book out there....with maybe the only exception being splinter of the minds eye...)

    And I know we are going in order....however, I was just getting that out in the open (its the touretts.... :) )

    Ok so, so far the Books to read for the mounth of April are the first two Jedi Apprentces books? Is that cool? Yeah we should take the good with the bad but if someone has read the book that is up for discution then they ahould put there in put on it and we all vote for it because this is going to take a long time to get through all of these.

    Then again the was the origanel idea to read all of them, but if we are going to do that then we are all going to need to read all of the Jedi Apprentice books and like 6 bucks a pop. so that kinda y I think we should vote on each book one at a time when we come to it on the list.

    Okay Y'all.....the book is called Tatooine Ghost.For everyone who is interested, here is the synopsis on the dust cover:

    "Han Solo and Leia Organa take center stage, and stunning revelations from the past play a critical role in shaping the future, as the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Star by Star now turns to a crucial chapter in the classic Star Wars saga.

    The deaths of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine, and victory at the Battle of Endor by no means spelled the end of the Empire. In the aftermath, the New Republic has faced a constant struggle to survive and grow. And now a new threat looms: a masterpiece of Alderaanian art?lost in transit after the planet?s destruction?has resurfaced on the black market. Offered at auction, it will command a handsome price . . . but its greatest value lies in the vital secret it conceals?the key to a code used to communicate with New Republic agents deep undercover within the Empire. Discovery of the key by Imperial forces would spell certain disaster. The only option is recovery?and Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO have been dispatched to Tatooine to infiltrate the auction.

    But trouble is waiting when they arrive: an Imperial Star Destroyer is orbiting Tatooine on the lookout for Rebels; a mysterious stranger at the auction seems to recognize Leia; and an Imperial officer?s aggressive bidding for the Alderaanian painting could foil the Solos? mission. When a dispute erupts into violence, and the painting vanishes in the chaos, Han and Leia are thrust into a desperate race to reclaim it?before Imperial troops or a band of unsavory treasure-peddlers get there first.

    Dangerous as the chase is, for Leia it leads into especially dark territory. Already haunted by the specter of her infamous father, and fearful that his evil may infect future generations, she has suffered a disturbing Force-vision of Luke turning to the dark side. As she battles beside Han against marauding TIE fighters, encroaching stormtroopers, and Tatooine?s savage Tusken Raiders, Leia?s struggle with the warring emotions inside her culminates in the discovery of an extraordinary link to the past. And as long-buried secrets and truths at last emerge, she faces a moment of reckoning that will forever alter her destiny . . . and that of the New Republic."
