    Dust!! Thats the thing I hate the most about them! LOL! I must admit my iPad was wonderful today, I'm still reading Mercy Kill, slow reader due to RL issues, but I sat in one doctors office and wrote fiction on it for 45 mins and then in the next office I read a chapter of Mercy Kill....versatile. ;)

    Hehe yeah that's the advantage of a tablet, though I'd probably use it to watch videos.

    If this was solely a Mercy Kill Fan Club, I would agree, but its not.

    Mercy Kill is the first X-wing book we have gotten in 13 years. I think it deserves the honor.

    It's also (IMO) a nice 'what the heck is this all about' teaser - at least for the time being!

    Sounds like fun! I almost bought Mercy Kill for kindle, but got the audiobook and the hardcover instead.

    Wow, double post.

    Are the X-Wing comics available online in any legal format?

    What's not right is that there are 2 incidents in chapter 24 that may have made you cry.

    You are referring to the very end of the chapter, right? The good news is that you will laugh again...keep reading.

    I like to read anytime, but my best reading time is just before dinner on the exercise bike. No lie, I took a vacation day on August 8 to read Mercy Kill. Dropped my kid off at school and had a "me" day.

    Be careful. I've dreamed of being in the middle of dogfights and touring star destroyers. I thought they were awesome dreams, but a little nerve racking. I pretty much only read SW, reading Revan at the moment. My husband says I can't possibly understand it since I have never played the game. However, I'm enjoying it.

    I dream that nearly every night mate! I just read the 'cameo' appearance out to my son (who is home sick today) and he was duly impressed.....




    Daddy,....seriously? :p

    Ugh...Revan...actually, not playing the game is a serious advantage.

    Interesting reading habits. I don't know if I could live on just Star Wars - maybe for a month, but after that, I'd need to thrown in some nice Austen or Dickens, maybe a fantasy or hard scifi, plus whichever of my favorite authors has dropped a book that month...

    I'm curious - since NYCC didn't lead to an Allston announcement (X-Wing or not) (which is not surprising, since Mercy Kill was just released, and any contracts are still probably being hammered out), what's the next likely time for such a news release, assuming we are that fortunate?

    When my son convinces me to play action figures with him I try to tell him that the Gamorrean gaurd is an X-wing pilot, but he just insists the Gamorrean is a bad guy.

    Finished Revan, not a bad book, but the ending sucked. I have Decieved checked out of the library to read next. We shall see if I can get into that.

    Last non Star Wars book I read was Born To Run.
