    I love the original X-wing books, and have all of them :D. The only ones I liked in the second series were Solo Command and Starfighters of Adumar But if I would point anyone in the right direction to start from. I would have to say with the Han Solo trilogy, I loved it, a lot of people don't. But its a great place to start.

    Then the movie novels, then Truce at Bakura, the X-wing novels, then the EU stories. Only read the NJO if your completely dedicated.

    Ah ha! I finally and unavoidably ran into someone that LIKES COPL. o_O I'm not going to rag on what other people likesies, but let me just say I only bought the book in hardcover for the picture by Drew Strutzan. Dave Wolverton is soooo unromantic, and cutting Luke out of the ceremony? :mad:

    Being Leia's only living family I found that quite awful of him, Luke should have walked her down the aisle. And how Leia acted towards Han, :mad: what was Wolverton writting? Star Wars or Taming of the Shrew?

    You can buy the X-wing books at any good book shop, Kookie, as well as K-Mart and Target. I've got most of mine from secondhand book shops, and a couple from K-Mart.

    Yep, i have a library of books but i havent looked to see if they are there, not at my place since i dont have the room in SW room but i will check next time i am at my parents :)

    I liked Truce and Courtship too and i am not into the "slave thing" ;)

    Although my favourite books are still the Thrawn trilogy....

    Thrawn triology I'm in total agreeance of. But I think it's better under the Heir to the Empire trilogy title, don't like the stupid Chiss. :D

    You'll not understand until you can comprehend this:
    [image=http://users.tpg.com.au/n_pearse/collection2.jpg]
    Scary thing is that that is insignificant compared to most fans here at the JC...

    The Jedi Academy Trilogy is alright...though it introduces a character who many people love or hate. Though the same could be said of the Thrawn Trilogy (in fact, that one introduces 3 :)) And I thought the main villians were rather lame. Kevin J Anderson's writing tends to polarise people.

    I could probably lend you some books if you need them...mine are mostly trashed already and I may buy some more soon so I won't be worried about them.

    Impressive Marcus. It might almost rival my collection, but I loved the Jedi Academy, I'd take Kevin J Anderson over Salvador and Denning anyday.

    Nah, now i've got a "library" right Ads ?
    Not posting pics, cos I got broken into a couple of weeks ago. Luckily they only stole my Jedi-Dex & left the rest of the collection alone (apart from making a big mess).Got everything in both H/C & softcover & every comic ever printed. Do I hear a higher bidder ?
