How many books have you read?
« on: May 11, 2012, 09:52:50 AM »
I thought it might be interesting to see how many EU books everyone has read,has anyone read them all?I have read 54 so far and have many to go,to me the EU books keep the Star Wars magic alive(besides lightsabers).Hopefully we will see some more stories come out in between the OT movies and between episode 3 and 4 :)
Sabers so far:

Luke V2,US 2.5 with crystal chamber(by ALuke123)
MR Vader ESB
MR Luke ESB
MR Luke ROTJ
MR Obi-Wan ROTS
Leia(work in progress)

I've got what looks like several 1000 in PDF format. Started reading the bane series and loving it. Plenty more to go.

I did read the Jedi apprentice as a kid so I guess I've read around 20

I've only read about 3 of the star wars books myself.

according to my "star wars books" app. I have 116 books on my shelf. So probably a few more than that.

I've read a few but IMO the best one that adds to the movies is "Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader" by James Luceno.  It's what Ep. III should have been.  It adds tons of depth to the Anakin/Vader transformation.  Recommend.

50 per year,now that's a lot of reading,i'd be doing good to get in 15-20 a year.

Agreed! Excellent book,i'll likely read that one again at some point.

Guestimating between 15-18K...oh wait...SW books? 40 or so...I was more of a trekkie [gasp!] in the eighties and nineties except for the Thrawn trilogy but am trying to catch up when the library gets SW books in [all my $ goes to sabers lol]
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

Just the EU books. It's hard to say, but I bought most of them I'm sure. Young Jedi Apprentice with Obi-wan and Qui-gon Jinn. Young Jedi Knights series. I never counted them before, but I'd say all the EU books only total 150 tops. I have just over 100 books in hardcover and paperback.

there are 174 adult EU novels and 134 young adults, lots of graphic novels- hard to count, by issue? by series?

I used to read a book a 400 page novel a week, but with work picking up and no down time as well as these pesky kids :)

I just haven't found the time to read much anymore.  There's a few series/novels I want to catch up on.

I have a pile I bought that I'm trying to catch up on. Currently still reading the Bane trilogy 8) So awesome.

Then it'll be the Thrawn Trilogy!

Oh and I'm also reading the Legacy comics.
