    I need every Yoda I can find who's wearing his HR robes.

    Working on reading "Convergence" - I'm about 1/2 way through and it's definitely getting good.

    I'm sooo excited! I have 2 exclusive covers of High Republic comics that I desperately want as comics. I finally got one at a reasonable price!

    Bell and Ember rule! (They also included a #1 Mandalorian comic)

    I don’t usually read on my tablet, but I downloaded Delilah Dawson’s Inquisitor: Rise of the Red Blade. I’m only a few chapters in, but this is a great Star Wars book. The character of Istar is deep, flawed and sympathetic. I’m interested to see how her character arc progresses. Dawson is a real talent.

    Yeah - I can't say that series is one of my favorites. The whole Path of the Hand (or whatever it was called) got tiring real fast.

    I think it was like the Path of the open hand. For me me it was read the words Path of the open hand, close book.

    Received my copy of "The High Republic Adventures: The Complete phase 1"

    The last wave 3 book didn't include what happened to the team on Starlight Station - this book includes it, so now stuff from "Midnight Horizon" makes more sense. :(:_|:_|

    There's a thread about it over in the Lit forum. I'm looking forward to the book - I've liked JJM's past books.

    This could be a great book. I enjoyed A New Dawn and I think JJM did a great job kicking off the new canon. Anything around the prequel era has my immediate interest.

    Me too! I love prequel era novels. I enjoy it when they examine the Jedi at any times that aren't directly related to the films.

    I believe I have 2 copies of the Tales of Light coming. Both are the Barnes and Noble exclusives w/an extra story in them. (Didn't mean to buy 2 - I thought one was a standard.)

    Well, 2 years later there's finally a TPB for The Monster of Temple Peak, and it's a meaty volume, with some bonus issues from The High Republic Adventures. I also got Tempest Runner in paperback, which was a pain to hunt down for some reason, but I got it, and it's also very meaty, much bigger than Dooku Jedi Lost.

    I like that they included the other annual stories w/ MoTP. I got a UK copy of that a while ago. Nice that they're finally available here.
    My SW room is a disaster. I really need to get my books out and organize them but I have mountains of stuff I'm trying to sell that's in the way. Grrr....
