Star Wars Books

After visiting Disney World, particularly Hollywood Studios, and seeing all of the Star Wars characters in action in shows as well as picture lines, the nerd in me got the Star Wars excitement bug.  Once home I did a little research into Star Wars books.  There are plenty of Star Wars kids books, but there is a whole series (several, actually) of Star Wars books for adults.  I did not realize how well the Star Wars universe was developed within these books.  I then took a look at my library's collection (online collection too) and discovered they have many, many of the Star Wars books available to check out for free!  Super cool!  So I did what any nerd does and checked out one of the books.  I didn't have a good idea where to start, so I went with the very first book in chronological order, Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void by Tim Lebbon.

How was it?  I thought it was a good book.  Not in the category of best books I've ever read and I have no idea how it compares to the other books in the Star Wars universe, but I enjoyed this quick read.  Will I read others?  Absolutely!   I'm a big science fiction fan and a Star Wars fan, so of course I'm going to read more Star Wars books now that I know there's a huge list of them out there.

If you have a science fiction enthusiast in your family who likes to read, consider Star Wars books as a gift, or point your kids to Star Wars books your local library may have.
