    You type, I read.

    Due to lack of my poll privileges; here are my thoughts for book club 2011:

    First, the new SW stand-alones for next year-

    dec 28: Red Harvest
    Jan 25th: Knight Errant
    Mar: TOR: Deceived (hard cover)
    Jul: Riptide
    Sept: Shadow Games

    OK, here is my rough draft for the book list polls. As allays, chime in-- and we will put your thoughts int he hopper. Also, this is just a rough draft. I like to have about 3 or 4 choices for each month-- to be voted on by YOU! Our dear friends.

    Feb: (scary, or a valentines day wedding tale?)
    Red Harvest
    Union: Trade Paperback

    April (something old or something new)
    Knight Errant
    Tales of the Catina

    June: (ol skool)
    Han Solo at Stars End
    Splinter of the Minds Eye

    Aug: (the crosscurrent sequel, OR 2 stand alone books from two of the big multi books stories)
    Riptide
    Traitor
    M ilium Falcon

    Oct: (November is the anniversary of the Thrawn books, I think. So, some of Zahn's lesser know works or the Shadows of the Empire sequel)
    Shadow Games
    Specter of the Past
    Vision of the Future
    Allegiance

    Dec: (clone wars, nothing but clone wars)
    Labyrinth of evil
    Shatterpoint

    Hmmm...I don't know about "Union". It's a cute story but pretty thin. Plus it has a lot of EU characters in it a casual reader wouldn't know (I didn't the first time I read it). Maybe as an "extra credit" discusion for February?

    "Crosscurrent" sequel? Ugh.

    "Shadow Games"? I had to look this one up and I'm totally down with this. Han AND Dash sharing the same book? Oh yeah!

    So, some books you like and some you don't-- that's why we vote :)

    Speaking of, I can post polls again! A little search of the small print: one can only have 5 polls open. Even if a poll is "over" the boards see it as open. There is a "manage my polls" section on "my board info" page. After I deleted all five of mine, I can once again flood the boards with polls.

    Echo-3, you may want to jot that down, as I am sure people will get frustrated when they try to make their sixth poll.

    Awesome Jammies, you can post polls again, and not being able to have more than five polls open at a time is a very good discovery. [face_whistling] I don't think any of us knew about that one. Can't wait for the new polls to come out. We'll get all of our books for the year, voted upon at once. Cool! [face_cowboy]

    Vote Away (and if you are so willing, post why you picked what you did-- that may help out those folks who are on the fence about the book club).

    Aside: Does anyone have the old Young Jedi Knights kids books (all 14 of them)?

    I decided to re-read the FOTJ books before I finish LOTJ next year. Then, I decided to go ahead and reread the NJO. Then I decided to go ahead and read the YJK books but ebay and amazon are a little crazy.

    Oh, a Knight Errant short story is up at the main site.

    He was only in 1 of the Young Jedi Knights Books. unfortunately, it's one I don't have. However, if you still want to read them, I will let you :)

    I have both Young and Junior Jedi Knight series, but they're in a box somewhere. Which ones do you need so I can dig for them?

    I totally forgot Zahn has a new book coming out next year.
    http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/story/Preview_The_Cover_Of_Zahns_Choice_Of_One_134598.asp

    We'll have to make sure that's part of a poll for the second half of the year.

    Yes my darling.. O.K. gang, our next book club meet up is set for: Friday December 3rd. [face_dancing] I'll get the complete 2011 schedule up, when we've finished voting on all reading material for next year. And I don't mind saying, that I'm excited about our up coming reads, they all look spectacular! You gave us some very good choices my Jammies! Judging from the formats, there just hasn't been any way to go wrong. [face_batting]

    Looks like I'm going to miss this one (working :()I'm interested to hear what the book club thinks of "reading" a graphic novel. Fill me in on the discussion later!

    I can't make the date either (which bites, this is my favorite thing. Well, one of them). I will be helping my Sister put up decorations for my Momma's surprise birthday party (Shhh!). Not sure why we thought surprising a 75 year old woman was a good idea.

    Zannah, would it at all be possible to change this to that following Monday?
