    Thank for the tip Kyle. Reading is a bit of a challenge for me, and I will not go into detail why. But, it's something I used to do alot when younger and miss quite a bit. I'm in Washington County actually, and sometime this weekend, I might just swing by the library and check out what they have.

    Any suggestions on where to start? As in what book or series?

    I pretty much started with Tales Of The Bounty Hunters and Shadow Of The Empire, but if you cannot find those, I'm a fan of the ROTS Novelization and just about any of the Clone Wars novels...

    Honestly, I only have the original trilogy novelizations and Shadows of the Empire in my Star Wars books collection. I have tried to get into the EU material more, but I find it pretty overwhelming at times. I am currently looking for more books based around the clone wars and the PT. Shatterpoint sounds really interesting, as does Dark Rendezvous.

    Also, the Star Wars and Philosophy book is a good read for anyone who doesn't know much about philosophy (and/or Star Wars, for that matter) and is a really good reference tool for those debates with non-fans over the maturity and depth of the films. I would have to say, though, that my favorite Star Wars book ever is the The original Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels. My friend and I had a running joke in our middle school years where we would give the same copy of the book back and forth to the other for their birthday. The book ended up falling apart because we read it so much!

    Yes, both Shatterpoint and Rendezvous were very good books. I recommend them both.

    Ok, this is somewhat off topic, but it's been bugging me for a few days now.

    Have you ever encountered something that is incorrect in a SW novel (or comic)? You know...something that a fact-checker must have overlooked? Anytime this happens to me it always brings things to a grinding halt and I get mentally de-railed... :rolleyes:

    Anyways, the problem I had was with the "Vaapad" reference in the new Darth Bane novel. The novel takes place a thousand years before Mace Windu even protects the galaxy with his personally created lightsaber form. Bah! I'm done ranting.

    LOLOLOL..Marshall .. I am sure you meant you have a beautiful copy of The Star Wars Holiday Special. But that is not considered porn.. It is considered Torture. Also Do you have a Copy of Bills Tv Series? It is called "Oh That Bill" It is a show about the Misadventures of Bill the Hapless Tie Pilot. He was the one that knocked darth Vader out of the Trench of First DeathStar. Then another show was when he tripped over a Mouse droid into a Vat of cream of Wheat in Death Star Mess hall... (Thanks Bill)..You are an Inspiration to these...all in good fun. [face_dancing] . Peace, Allan
