Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you!

2 Comments

Come to the Dark Side, embrace your inner geek. May the Fourth be with you!

Personally, I’ve never read any of the Star Wars books. I guess I knew in some vague part of my brain that there were Stars Wars books out there, but I never realized quite how extensive the series really is. There are literally HUNDREDS of books in multiple series.

I am a self-admitted Star Wars geek so now I’ve started to add the books to my to-read list, which already contains over 3,000 titles. *sigh* So many books, so little time.

So here is a list of series and books to help all you secret (and not so secret) Star Wars geeks out there. I’m including only novels here, no comics or graphic novels — not that I have anything against comics and graphic novels but really, this post is going to be long enough as it is.
