    Hey could you bring some assorted small greeblies with you to club for me? I see some fans are customizing their phones to look like in universe data pads for their visit to Galaxy's Edge. Do I plan on going anytime soon? Nope, but eventually. Heck, by that time I'll probably have a different phone but it's not too early to plan.

    Hope to see everyone TONIGHT at 7:00 at Barns and Nobels for Book Club!

    Don't worry if you didn't read the book, we just like to see your face!

    Enjoying Alphabet Squadron. I like Star Wars books that aren't centered on the main characters...it raises the stakes a bit I think, I don't know who is going to live or die.
    Book Club Monday August 5? I could make it.
    Also picked up the latest Thrawn book hard back at Barnes and Noble just for the exclusive mini poster of a fem Chiss Admiral.

    Yup, the 5th, unless we need to reschedule.

    Still working on the book, and Stang .. talk about bodycount. The author raises the stakes, then burns pilots on the stakes, then kills the ashes with the stakes, then kills those stakes too.

    Okay, looks like I missed last book club due to life getting in the way. When is the next meeting and what is the next book??

    First Monday in October which is the 7th? (and I can make it). I think Jammies and I decided on Thrawn:Treason by Zahn. At least I hope so since that's what I read. Nothing decided for December yet. Maybe something Galaxy Edge or movie related?

    Right now I'm free any other night that week. What works best? And we can discuss what night you want to change future book club meets to. With my work schedule it's always a toss up if I can make it anyway.

    Extra Credit:I read Black Spire by Delilah Dawson and LOVED it. (and enjoyed the references to Palob Godalhi)

    There are some nice EU references in the new Galaxy's Edge cookbook. I'll have to remember to spotlight them at book club this Monday December 2 (hint hint).

    Good meeting of the Mandalorian Fan Club...I mean the book club. In addition to the book (which I had some problems with the timeline of), we discussed the Mandalorian, the Galaxy's Edge cookbook, our Rise of Skywalker outing, last month's GalaxyCon and next year's Lexington Con (which is shaping up to be our own version of Star Wars Celebration). February's book(s) will be the classic Lando trilogy.
    As I was leaving the store I saw they had Star Wars socks with the old READ posters art I grew up with so I had to get a 3-pack. They also had Tshirts with the same if anyone was interested.

    Del Ray sent this out on the 9th:

    "Good morning friends. Recently some readers identified a serious printing error with their copies of the Crystal Star. We're working on fixing the error. In the mean-time if you purchased on of the error copies, you should work with the bookseller to get a replacement. Thanks!"

    What could the "serious error" be, and was it worse then what the book is normally? Is Waru to blame? I need answers.

    All Hail Waru!

    I'm only a couple of chapters into Lando and...I like it. Has a lot of humor, a lot of sarcasm and I really feel like they've captured Lando's voice. We'll see if the story/plot is as good.

    If you have an interest in statistics, permutations and combinations of the number 78, come to the Book Club this Monday night as we discuss the classic Lando trilogy.
