    I'm really shy but I got 100% on it because I knew what I was talking about, plus I wasn't wearing my glasses so I couldn't see the other kids faces. :p


    I just got three new books.
    1) A Storm of Swords, by George R. R. Martin (1177 Pages)
    2) X-Men 2, by the motion picture and a lot of other names are on it. (408 pages)
    3) Warcraft: The Last Guardian (3rd one of the series) by Jeff Grubb (308 pages)

    thats a total of 1893 pages.

    Er, if any of you are fantasy lovers, the Dark Elf trilogy by R. A. Salvatore is amazing. I think he also wrote a Star Wars book. Rogue Squadron I'm thinking for some reason? I may be mistaken. Also, any Stephen King book is also a must read. I'm on Dreamcatcher right now and it's bloody brilliant.

    I am still in the middle of Ep.II I got bored during the dinner scene with Padm'e's family & Anakin. It seemed never ending 8-} Yet the book is quite good, I think now I am back to the Kaminos, and Obi-Wan.

    I've read Vector Prime 3 times. As Jangofett316 pointed out it is the first book in the NJO series. Which by the way is a very good series. When I started it I read Vector Prime, then I read Edge of Victory 1: Conquest up to the next one. Then I went back to the one after Vector Prime. And read through them all from there. Now I have all but the first five novels in the NJO series. The next book comes out in June and the series should finish sometime towards the end of the year. Which I really don't want it to.

    An EU book is an Epanded Universe book. Which means it takes place after the movies. Some of them take place during, before, and in between the movies. The first one that was wriiten(but not published) was Splinter of the Mind's Eye by Alan Dean Foster. It was intended to be a T.V movie just in case ANH didn't fare well in the theatres. but we all know how that turned out. Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy(which were published in 1995) were the start of a new era of Star Wars novels.

    It turns out the next NJO book, The New Jedi Order: Force Heretic II:Refugee is to be released this month which is really good. I think Barnes and Noble has it right now. Another EU book that came out this month is Tatooine Ghosts. It looks really good.
