    9 I'm not sure I have a favorite book but I do like I,Jedi for the fact it shows a first person view of the force
    10 I've liked SW all my life but I didn't get hooked until last year when I read HttE now I've read all the novels up to date

    1. I haven't read that far yet, but I do own a few of the books. So far, it sounds okay to me, but it took me a while to get over Chewie.


    2. Mostly same as you, Nightsun: good ol' TF.N, Aldera.net, Star Wars.com and some other sites, like The Digital Bits, the IMDB, etc.


    3. Some. I collect a few action figures, books, comics, but I usually pick up any cool Star Wars stuff I find at garage sales or antique shops.


    4. My favorite piece is my Jeremy Bulloch autograph, which I got last year at Disney World last year. I waited in line for four hours, but it was fun.


    5. Edmond, on the edge of OKC.


    6. How much time is between Episodes I and II?


    7. The Special Editions got me hooked.


    8. So far, so good (I'm going chronological, although I'm only at Wedge's Gamble right now).


    9. So far, my favorite is Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter.


    10. I forget. Somewhere around the age of Anakin in Rogue Planet.


    11. I'm into DVD, I have a large PEZ collection (hence the name), and I also have a large collection of Muppet stuff. Some of my othr favorite movies are Ghostbusters, the Back to the Future series, Jurassic Park 1 & 2 (but NOT 3), Indiana Jones, and the Muppet movies.


    12. The Empire Strikes Back. Best movie ever made, in my opinion.

    1 It's okay. I hardly read anything for it, though.

    2 TheOneRing.Net, RSJAMES.com, starwarschicks.com,and of course the official site.

    3 Yes, as much as I can without spending a fortune. ;)

    4 Probably my old 1977 ANH poster-- it's in nearly perfect condition.

    5 Norman

    6 I've lived here off and on all my life.

    7 My father.

    8 Depends. I like almost anything Pre-TPM, but as for Post-RotJ I'm very picky.

    9 Actually it is Queen Amidala's Journal. It was extremely well written and it captured the Queen's character perfectly.

    10 eight

    11 Jesus. He's my life. As for everything else: I like to read, especially mysteries and fantasies, and I am almost done reading the LotR, which have promptly become my favorite books. I can't wait for the movies! I Irish Step Dance (as in the movie Riverdance), which is probably about as close to playing sports as I'll ever get. It's surely as exhausting. I want to be a stormchaser (if my stupid allergies will let up; low pressure systems make them terrible)!! I also love to sing, and I want to be a singer. Some fave music: dcTalk, Rebecca St. James, LaRue, The Newsboys. That's all I can think of right now...

    12 It's a tie between ESB and TPM.

    1. What do you think about the NJO?

    Fits and spurts, in my opinion. I loved Dark Tide and Hero's Trial, but the Conquest books didn't do much for me.

    I mostly just hang out here.

    3. Do you collect?

    I only collect the novels, nothing else.

    4. If so, what's your favorite piece?

    Well, actually, I do have the original soundtrack on two long play records that I picked up at a library sale several years ago. Does that count?

    5. Where do you live in OK?

    Catoosa. It's by Tulsa.

    6. How long have you lived in OK?

    I was born in Seminole, lived there for a couple of years, moved to Arkansas for two years and then came back.

    7. What got you hooked on SW?

    The kiddie novelization of Empire Strikes Back.

    8. Do you like the EU?

    On the whole, yes, but I despise Hambly and MacIntire.

    9. If so, what's your favorite book?

    Iron Fist by Aaron Allston.

    10. How old were you when you got hooked on SW?

    About five.

    11. What else do you like besides SW?

    I like almost every kind of music you can name (except rap) and I love Frank Peretti's books and a good movie.

    12. What movie do you like the best so far?

    The Empire Strikes Back, because of the in depth character flourishes and the final shocking revelation of Darth Vader's true identity.

    Well, there you go. :D

    Wow! I'm flattered, JB! :) (See siggy.)

    TFN, the official site, fanfiction.net, and Harry Potter sites.

    3 Do you collect?
    Not really. The last thing I avidly collected were the TPM Pepsi cans, now if I just see a poster or a book I really want I buy it. Aside from the Monopoly games, I don't have any SW toys.

    Probably my Episode II teaser poster. Or maybe my Kenny Baker autograph.

    Oklahoma City. By Lake Hefner.

    6 How long have you lived in OK?

    Always liked it as a kid, but full-blown obsession kicked in when my dad bought the SE videos when they came out in '97.

    8 Do you like the EU?
    Bits and pieces: the Zahn books, the X-Wings, and some of the prequel EU.

    9 If so, what's your favorite book?
    The Zahn trilogy.

    10 How old were you when you got hooked on SW?
    Like I said, loved it since I was little, but I was 14 in '97 when I really got hooked.

    11 What else do you like besides SW?
    Harry Potter, Farscape, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, and to an extent, Lord of the Rings.

    12 Which movie do you like the best so far?
    Hmm. Toughie. I don't like any one of them enough more than the others to really claim a definite favorite.

    Yes as long as its a good story.
