    Well, I?m trying to knock out the 2012 book club reading list?so please do vote, even if you do not know if you will read the book 18 months from now. (?)
    This is for June, and I figured with the media hoopla surrounding the new MMO, including new books and comics for this new Star Wars epoch, it would be fun to dive into it. While the MMO lunches this winter, by June some of us may have played with it and can discuss both the book and your opinions of the game (are you a Sith, a Jedi, or a Bounty Hunter?).
    Me? I am staying as far away from this game as possible. Not because it looks bad, but because it looks awesome! I know with my personality type, all I would do would be to play this game. Not eat, not sleep, not go to work, not pay bills, not work on models, nothing.

    So books:
    Deceived. Remember the trailer that had Darth Malgus destroy the Jedi Temple? This is the book that describes that, as well as the rouge Jedi that seeks to revenge her master?s death. Paperback.
    Revan. New Hardback, but may be a paperback by June. This will be about the Sith Lord Darth Revan as featured in the first KOTOR game. While he has, I think, been dead for hundreds of years by the time of the MMO this is still an MMO tie-in book.
    Fatal Alliance: The Jedi and Sith are in a state of cold war, a stalemate. What happens when they have to work together for fight a common enemy? Also, this book has battle droids and Mandos. I think this book spins off from the trailer that had the Alderaan battle?in that it has some of the same characters but takes place way after that battle.
    Other: Sick of the MMO? Just post a different book. This is a democracy. Kinda.

    Can we mail Appo a copy of the book (or I got or will get it on audio) so he can play when he gets back?

    Shebs, I hope June gets here quick.

    I'm not gonna vote because I've already read both available Old Republic books and I WILL read the Darth Revan book as soon as it's out, I'm really looking forward to it...and hey...Drew Karpyshyn so you know it will be good. So anyway come June I'll be ready to discuss whatever book the group decides on.

    Sure.

    On the otherhand, the Reven book comes out next month, and the book clun won't meet till June. Can you wait that long to read the new Drew book set in the Sith age?

    I love that they are doing them unabridged now. And the voices, music, and sound effects really add to that "theater of the mind."

    In a nut shell..... ummmmmmmmmmm..... [face_thinking] ......... nope. [face_not_talking]:p

    So my vote stands. [face_dancing] Thanks my Jammies! [:D]


    By the way...... we are coming up on the Holidays. I know that Dar and Showtunes are due back from their campaign. Appo is supposed to be back too. What would the chances of a Lazer Tag Game night be?? .... Maybe renting the place for an evening?

    Speaking of the MMO; feel free to vote on an MMO tie in book for this June.
    (I know, I know, so far away-- but we need the list of books by the end of the year I think).
