A Few Blog Updates
I'd like to first say thank you to those of you who come out and comment. When Push and I started this blog, it was not just so that we could talk to nobody or just to ourselves, because we do that over e-mail. It was an effort to bring together the die-hard Han and Leia community and make it just that: a community. A place for us to talk about our favorite characters with people who are interested in the same thing. It makes it far, far more worthwhile if the posts create some sort of conversation rather than just being there without comment, so it's great to have a vocal group out there. And I love that we have a good combination of people who have been fans since they saw them in theaters to people who saw them for the first time on, gasp, DVD. It's great to have these different perspectives.
Anyway, enough gushing about you people. Just a few notes on the blog. First, the EU book club. I was thrilled to see the excessive ranting on COPL, not that it was unexpected. Feel free to continue to bash. The book club is taking a very, very brief hiatus. Please don't panic! With Christmas coming up we decided that it made sense to take a couple of weeks off. So there will be no book review on Christmas day. Those of you celebrating should have better things to do and those of you who aren't, well, use it as an opportunity to get ahead of the game.
Also, this week's review will not be Tatooine Ghost. Yes, it is next chronologically. But julz has volunteered to give us a guest review of the X-Wing series, which actually comes between Mindor and COPL chronologically, so that will be what we are putting up this week. It is a seven book series focusing mainly on Rogue Squadron, but Han has a fairly prominent part in the latter books and Leia makes a brief appearance or two. I have not actually read this series, but it is part of the timeline and some of you may be interested. So get reading, because you only have until Sunday to read seven books :) And along these lines, if anyone has any ideas for a post they want to add here, please don't hesitate to ask one of us. We'd love to have more outside contributions.
Lastly, we are still looking for joint story ideas! Please, submit away and there is no limit to the amount of suggestions one person is allowed to make. We would love to have a good amount of ideas to put out there for you to vote on. No idea is too silly or weird or convoluted. This is your chance!
Keep the comments coming and thanks to all of you once again for reading and participating!
