Fun little pieces with some minor tie-in to some of the other books, particularly the Bounty Hunter Wars.
Yeah I have Tales from the New Republic but I don't think i've read all of it and I read parts of Tales from the Mos Eisley cantina. Granted this was over a decade ago. I was super into Star Wars when I was like 12-14 and its just kinda come back to me recently.

Tales of the Bounty Hunters was the best one. Each story contains the the "no disintegrations" scene from Empire told from the hunter's perspective.


I love professional-wrestling.

IG-88 like a motherfucker.

Actually I might have read that one, not the Mos Eisley cantina.

Went and bought the next 3 in the series (10 overall currently) but might try and get into the Jack Reacher series since I've had those books sitting about for a while and they're a bit lighter, plus I don't have as much time lately to get properly into reading with uni work taking up lots of time.
Book 3 is better than 2, IMO. Well maybe. 2+3 are probably the best. 4 is weird but super good, really.

2 had the chain of dogs. Also there are more than the 10 in the main series. You can read Night of Knives after book 4 and return of the crimson guard after book 7.

edit: wait 5 is the one that's..weirdish slightly. You do meet one of the funniest characters ever, though.

Very interesting stuff. It's only interesting because of how different it is to what I know, but interesting none-the-less.

What's everybody else reading?

Re: The Book thread.

Started reading We need to talk about kevin recently. Seems like a good book, but to be honest i haven't been able to really commit to it yet

Re: The Book thread.

Started reading Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre. I'm beginning to appreciate the abstract imagery in this.
