Join Us...and Together We Can Read the Entire EU!
So, Zyra and I have been knocking around this idea to read all of the EU books together. Sort of like a book club. We haven't worked out many rules, other than that. We thought it might be interesting to compare our thoughts on the books as we read them. We also thought it might be a good opportunity to do some writing challenges along the way. Maybe filling in those missing moments that the EU is so famous for.
We haven't decided on a start date, but Zyra needs to finish reading 'Choices of One' before we begin so it probably won't start up for a few weeks or so. We will be starting with the Han Solo Trilogy which chronicles Han's life and is set before ANH.
We don't intend to read every single book out there, like the X-Wing series and some others that don't feature or pertain to Han and Leia. This was just an idea and as I said, we haven't worked out many details but we thought you guys might be interested. We thought we might do one post per book giving a review and synopsis. Maybe even work on a 'Han and Leia' rating for each book. Who knows?
You guys might not want to read every book and you may just want to pop in and out on the ones that interest you. Or maybe you might just want to chime in on the books you remember that we end up talking about. Whatever works for you.
I guess what we're wondering is...does this sound interesting to anyone? Admittedly it sounded a little a insane to us at first (it was my idea), but it has sort of grown on us and I'm getting pretty excited. I'm a fast reader and don't always absorb everything on the first pass. I have reread all of my favorite books (sometimes more than just twice) so this isn't that crazy to me. But sometimes I'm a bad judge of crazy. :-)
