    I should hope so. Some of those probably got the younger generation to get Star Wars in the first place.

    I'd also like to nominate the books that got me into the EU...

    Heirs of the Force
    Dark Knight
    Shards of Alderaan
    Lightsabers

    I'd be with you there, Yane. Go the Young Jedi Knights series!! :D

    Not really, Boogie. Just copy and paste then sort. ;)



    Okay, I'm going to nominate some Jedi Apprentice as I love them:

    JA #1 The Rising Force
    JA #5 The Defenders of the Dead
    JA #6 The Uncertain Path
    JA #7 The Captive Temple

    It's not against the law to renominate, Tyi. If he wants to, leave him be.

    Sorry if my last post sounded a bit, ah, upfront. I apologise. [face_peace] I know it's perfectly fine for you to renominate?I just fail to see the point. There's a lot more books out there, that's all. :)

    Move along, move along. :)

    uh, we're not allowed to nominate more than 4 in one post and not to post multiple times in a row
    does that mean we can nominate 2 sets of 4 books?

    if so:

    Rebel Stand
    The Joiner King
    Tyrant's Test
    Dark Tide II: Ruin


    if not... well... somebody else will have to do it, then :p


    are we at 62, then?

    Well, my instincts would say that 2 sets of 4 books would count as 8 books, but I think we are dealing with different subject material than other tournaments so exceptions should be made, especially in the case of series.

    And I can't be bothered counting up to 64. We have to wait for droideka to get back before we can do anything anyway, so she can count. :p

    I know we need 64, my 62 comes from adding my second 4 into the list of 58 up there ;)


    and if I can't nominate again, I'll have somebody else post it for me. I'm sure I can find someone who is willing to +1 for me :p

    Right, my mistake.

    And also, you just can't nominate in a row. You are okay to nominate any number of books as long as I post in between your nominations.

    (read: nominate those other books below this post. :p)

    I had the above list and Dark Nest's book timeline in front of me to do my last nomination. Apart from the other BFC's, I don't want to nominate anything else. :p

    As far as I read from droideka's post, you can nominate as many books as you want?in 4 group segments. And you must not nominate any back-to-back?someone must nominate some themselves inbetween. (Example: Zebra's got the idea if you look at the previous page ;))

    ^ I think that's what Boogie just last stated. Just adding my clarification. :p



    Oh, and TwiLek, you can't count. :p j/k 8-}

    After that group of 58 both me and Yane nominated 4 more each. Which, if I'm not mistaken, would take the total up to 66 and therefore make your extra 4 then take it to 70. o_O (Boy, I hope that's right?else I'll sound like a certified idiot. :p)

    Which means we are now aiming for 128. :p More books people! lol

    Carry on.

    how comes you understand the rules so well? I find that ... suspicious. And discomforting.


    but nobody ever confirmed if all the teen novels/ young reader stuff counts, too, so I ignored them for the time being. Not only can I count, I can also read [face_mischief]
