    I'd burn ANY book I had to if it meant my survival.

    "theres a lot of paper in those Zahn books"

    Well, certainly in the case of at least two, there's too much paper in them. ;)

    Yes... if my life depended on it, yes. I don't care if it was my personally signed copy of Heir to the Empire, I would still do it (but then again, why in hell would I have that book with me?!?!?) Anyways, my survival is the goal, and I can always replace the book. I can't replace my life.

    I didn't expect this to get to a third page.

    :D Question: You're lost in the woods and there is no wood to burn, would you burn Mastadge in order to survive? :D

    I'd probably dry him out for a day or so, then burn him.

    This thread must be archived. So future generations can have this knowledge. :)

    Anyone want to take a guess as to the books I would burn?

    It would all depend on what book I had, If it was I,Jedi then no, not on my life. But if it was Visions of the Future, then yeah, get out the matches.

    The first couple of people who actually answered the question, although the thread was kinda gunny before we got to that part. Anywya: they're crazy as hell.

    Damn right, I'd burn a book to make a fire so I could keep on breathing. And saying we live for knowledge and all. Well, now you're dying to preserve knowledge and comeon I love Star Wars too, but it's not chock full of practical and real life knowledge.

    I would build a nice big fire with my book.

    "I'm not one to sacrifice my own life for the sake of a 9.95 paperback."


    My thoughts exactly. Except I get them for $6.95.

    Hm....

    Personalized autographed hbs of Vision of the Future, I, Jedi, and pb. (obviously) Starfighters of Adumar? Only if it were an absolute matter of life and imminant death, and then I'd try and save as many pages as I could. Tales from the Empire and Tales from the New Republic? Also many autographs--last resort again, but before the first three mentioned. Any of the others I'd burn if necessary because I could replace them. Dark Empire II and the Jedi Academy trilogy (and my Marvels that are in too poor a condition to be salable) would be the first on the fire if something had to go.
