    I just called B&N, they got it in and are holding a copy for me, which I can pick up after dinner.

    So here's a discussion thread. I won't call it official, though. ;)

    I'm looking forward to this book.

    I live in Canada so I may have to wait for a while until I can find it though...
    If it is any better than the title for Epsiode two than I am sold! :)
    Are spoilers going to be allowed on this thread?

    Do you have an official street date? I hope this one shows up at Walden. I had to go to Borders for JA - SE: Deceptions.

    JediNet Literture's The Future says it comes out September 4.

    Amazon says it comes out sometime this month.

    Maybe stores got it really early, and Rebecca's local B&N made a big mistake and put it out. Or they mistook Jedi Quest for something else.

    I just got back - finally.

    So I get there, it's at the register. I just let them ring it up because my mom is waiting in the car.

    On the way home, I take it out to admire it. Whoops - big tear on the back jacket flap!

    So much to my mom's annoyance, I get her to turn around and go back so I can exchange it for another copy.

    Finally, I get home.

    Some theories about how Rebecca gets her books so early...

    1. She manipulates B&N employees behind the scenes and has the books suddenly pop into stock just when she asks...

    2. She uses a Jedi mind trick when she asks for the books.

    3. She calls for a vote of no confidence in Borders, and this makes Barnes and Noble suddenly have the books she wants...

    I'm looking forward to this one. It's about time they let Jude Watson do a hardcover novel. Hope she one day does a JA hardcover book on Qui/Obi.

    It is rather weird how B&N keeps getting books early... ::Looks around suspiciously::

    LOL!!

    I hate when they can't find a book in the database and then I go back and look on the shelf and it's there.

    Bookstore employees around here aren't exactly the sharpest pencils in the box.

    ROFL!

    Didn't you want to work at B&N? You too Vergere? :p

    How much was the book? Like 10-12 bucks or something?

    I think they're using Jedi mind tricks on you, Rebecca.

    This is out already? I always know when the next book is coming out and I thought this wouldn't be out until October? Or maybe I confused this with the comic series... That must be it.

    ::shameless plug mode On::

    Everyone look out for my Obi-Wan and Anakin story to hopefully be archived here at TFN within 7 days or so. It fits completely into continuity and is in the style of JA.

    If you want more info and excerpts from it, search for posts under Kane_Skywalker, my sock.

    So, can you give us a short summary, please?

    Err, wait, is this a spoiler thread or not?
