I'm reading Najica Blitz Tactics volume 2, and will then move on to One Piece volume 4.

They're both Japanese Manga's :D

c't no. 14/2005 at present, Scientific American, Trains. Mostly magazines I read on the train on the way to work. Last book was "Die Dunke Seite der Liebe" by Rafik Schami (The Dark Side of Love) which is a marvelous love story / clan history set in Syria (has nothing to do with Darth Vader.)

Those are some of the best SW books out there.

I'm currently rereading Shadows of the Empire.

How much time do you people spend reading. I can't seem to read more than 1 chapter a day. I have such a hard time reading books.

Those stories rival Lucas's own works.

But there are actually 5 books in that series :wink:

There are? The guy at Waldenbooks said there were only 3, which I now have: Heir to the Empire, The Last Command, and Dark Force Rising. Which ones am I missing?

Same with me. I just don't have time to read during the day so I read right before I go to sleep. I can usually only make one chapter before I conk out from sleep deprivation ;)

Well, strictly speaking there are 3, and then the sequal to the series has 2.

Specter of the Past
Vision of the Future

Both are *REALLY* worth the read... if only for the very end of Vision of the Future :wink:

Now reading One Piece Volume 6, and will begin Najica Blitz Tactics Volume 3 shortly.

I have a feeling a novel will be appearing before me soon though... but all this reading has been cutting into my precious Gameboy Advance SP time :cry:

Currently reading "Cryptonomicon" by Neal Stephenson. All other books have been packed and moved to the new house, so it'll be a couple weeks before I pick up anything else. This book has been a lot slower reading than his last one I read ("Snow Crash") which I couldn't put down.
