    well, I've read 38 starwars books but no NJO books, because I've allways heard that they were stupid.
    I've decided to give 'em a try now, if for no other reason but to call them stupid objectivly.

    could some one give me a list of them starting with the first one?

    and also are there any really stupid once that aren't worth the paper? If so I'll just scikp those.

    thanks for any help!

    No, there are no stupid NJO books that are worth skipping.

    There are some that are not as good when compared to others, but they are all vital to the overall NJO storyline.

    He's not really in it. He gets a brief mention in Remnant, but he does not appear. It's more along the lines of "Where the sith is Katarn"?

    Yeah, its just a passing reference. But its a start, so maybe we'll see in some other books sometime.

    The only non-essential parts of the storyline were the e-books. (I think there were 3-4?) One of them, Ylesia, can be found for free on starwars.com. (There's a link in Lit.)

    Other than that, I'd recommend reading all of them. It's a very linear story; the events that take place in one book are pivotal for the events in the next. If you skip some, you'll get lost.

    All in all, it's not the best book series ever, IMHO. The fact that it was written by so many different authors makes it somewhat inconsistant in some ways. There are definatly some outstanding moments, though.
