    Currently waiting for The Unifying Force. :D
    And czech-translated version of Vision of future. (I must say I'm afraid of it. Czech translations are horrible in general - for example X-wing translated as "cross-winged starfighter")

    Wow, that is bad translation. :D In Croatia, translations are terrible. When i read The Thrawn Trilogy on Croatian, and then again on english,... the first thing i thought "Somebody has to die for this... this blasphemy..."

    Anyway, i'm on a NJO reading spree the last month :D and i just finished NJO Agents of Chaos: Jedi Eclipse - it'sone of the best SW books i've read so far. :) And so i move on to the next in line - Star by Star.

    I'm reading most of my books on the computer, for many reasons, money being one of them. We have only one(or is it two?) publishers in Croatia, and they print only 2-3 books a year, witch is really sad :( plus they're a bit expensive for my taste, AND they publish them in some wierd order i still can't understand. The last book that got out was (i think...)was the New Rebellion (witch isn't a very good SW book by my standards). And the worst part of it all is the damn translation. I found a mistake on the first page, not chapter, page. That tells you everything...

    Anyway, (had to get that out of me... :D) whats your favorite book/trilogy/series?

    Mine are...

    0. The Thrawn Trilogy - The best of the best.
    ----------------------

    1. X-wing series(Wraith squadron rules!) :D
    2. The Hand of Thrawn
    3. The Han Solo Adventures
    4. Shadows of the Empire
    5. The New Jedi Order - Agents of Chaos 1 & 2
    6. The League of Spies
    7. Shatterpoint (now that's tough reading)

    The worst...(to me anyway, just don't have that SW feeling...)

    The New Rebellion,
    Han Solo Adventures,
    Episode 1 Adventures,
    The Starfighter trap.

    I´m very happy that the german translation are´nt so bad but I think it would be funny to read the books from croatia...

    the books I read were:

    The Thrawn Trilogie
    Yuuzhan Vong 1-8
    X-Wing
    the Correlia-Crisis
    the Original Trilogie
    the Covenant of Bakura
    Abduction to Dathomir
    the Jedi-Academy Trilogie
    Palpatines Eye;Dark Saber;Planet of twilight
    the cristalstar
    the black fleet
    rebellion of the lost
    the hand of thrawn

    if the names are´nt correct im soory ´cause I translated the German Names in English and I don´t know if I done it well..I hope you´ll understand the titles..

    Do you still have those books? there should be in them their oryginal title :)
    In polish there is :) But, I have to say, if I had translated the titles from polish to English, there would be quite a mess ;)

    Right now I'm reading Wedge's Gamble :) I've read Rogue Squadron, but it wasn't as good as i heard of.

    THX for the tip. ;) Gonna move it to the bottom of the "sw books to read" list when i get it. :D

    But... um... RC is (at least i think it is) an action book, so i think it should be better then Ruins of Dantooine. :)
