    Ah, February. Valentines day. Love and paper hearts.
    Or, love and bleeding hearts oozing blood onto starship corridors.

    This month, we pick from two love themed star wars books, and the new paperback from Deathtroopes author Joe what'shisname. Red Harvest is the new book, something about the old sith and a bunch of gore.

    Courtship by Dave Woverton tells the story about Han and Leia, and Isolder, and Nightsisters. Will she pick the nerfherder or the prince of Hapes? Finally a short comic about the wedding of Luke and Mara round out this list for February. As always, feel free to shim in with any suggestions.

    I'm choosing Courtship as well. This is the book that introduced us to another world with people like Prince Isolder and Teneniel Djo. Also went a little more in depth with the Nightsisters.

    If we have two votes for Courtship, then why is Union in the lead?

    Ah, frik, I meant to vote for Red Harvest but I hit the wrong button. Bah.

    Seeing as how I loathe Valentine's Day (except for the candy hearts!), I think a book about blood and gore and zombies is perfect. :D

    I hope you like it Zannah, as it is a love story-- filled with passion, romance, bloodthirsty rancors, domestic kidnapping, and overweight imperial warlords. :)

    Oh, man, I thought Red Harvest would take this for sure. I guess I?ll go ahead and vote for it anyway to at least give it a fighting chance.

    11,

    You know. You can read more than one book if you want too. I'm sure I will have read that one by then. We can have fun spoiling everyone else.

    Considering the subject matter of the two books, Red Harvest for the easy win. ;)

    As we discussed in another thread: in a tie, I then vote (I don't vote on these polls, just make them).

    This is the Book Club version of a hanging chad.

    If JediMaster91 MEANT to pick RedHarvest.....

    Then that book gets 4 votes.

    Feb book: Red Harvest.
    (Courtship may show up later....)

    Picked up the book on Tuesday and I devoured it! (get it?) I really enjoyed it and am really looking forward to discussing it at book club. I don't want to give anything away but I'll never look at TaunTauns the same way again!
