By my count, 64 of the "real" books. Some of them I have read twice too :P

I read the Thrawn Trilogy when it first came out and loved it. For me it was episodes seven, eight and nine. I haven't read any of the others. I think the reason is that with so many books by so many authors I was worried that the 'magic' might be lost somewhere along the line (much as it often is with comics that are handed from one writer to the next).

I'll admit that I'm tempted by the Bane Trilogy though. :)

Def read the Bane series, Drew K. really gives life to the sinister Sith Lord and his machinations. Worth the read for sure.

Right on! The Bane series are very worth the read. I probably can read the first one over and over again. right now I am in the middle of Darth Plagueis, I am a very slow reader. I haven't read much, I mainly like books on the Sith side of things. Next is Revan.

I'm on 54 SW EU. Plus whatever else takes my fancy. In Feb/march I read the game of thrones books. I've only just finished reading Misery, what a book though.

Third one's end ticked me off. No spoilers but interested to see what you think.

this may be an oldy but anyone like Anne Rice?  i love her Vampire chronicles. read all of them. they should really think about making another movie, since the whole vampire thing is like "in" right now. i know the last one they did sucked but the first one (Interview with a Vampire) was amazing.

As far as Star Wars books, I've probably read approx. 50 of them give or take a couple.
I started with the Thrawn Trilogy, then read the novels based on the original movies, and then went on from there... NJO, Legacy of the Force, Fate of the Jedi, individual books like Outbound Flight, I, Jedi, Darth Bane's Trilogy and many others in between. Maybe that would be more than 50! Lol

I've also read some of the graphic novels such as the Legacy series.

I haven't read nearly as many as most people here, but I'm sure I have a solid count as well.  I remember reading a number of the "younger" novels like Mission to Mount Yoda, and lately I've been on a marathon journey through New Jedi Order, Dark Nest, and Legacy of the Force (I'm just finishing Inferno).  It's a great series!

I have read about 4.5 EU books:
  • 3 Darth Bane books ( Love them, keep re-reading them, cant put them down. )
    The Force Unleashed
    1/2 of Fatal Alliance
Over the years I've also collected random bits and pieces of the EU by buying books at Thrift Stores, Flea Markets, etc. I have since collected:
  • Jedi Quest by Jude Watson #1,2,7
    • - The Way of the Apprentice, The Trail of the Jedi, and The Moment of Truth
    I've picked up Ep. I in print as well
    And I found the Jedi Apprentice series special edition: Deceptions.
    I also have roughly 8 of the books after ep. VI - the New Jedi Order books etc.

I've read ~46 books, several e-books, and a handful of graphic novels. My favorites are definitely Zahn's Thrawn series, followed by the Bane trilogy, and the X-Wing series.
