Discussion: What have you been reading?

What’s the last book you read? What’s the last book you read that you’d recommend, and why?

Also, what upcoming books are you looking forward to? What are the latest editions to your to-read pile

(No, none of these have to be Star Wars – in fact, please don’t, particularly those of you with advance copies of certain gigantic reference tomes – since we know all about those.)

Discussion: Your entry point to Star Wars fandom?

It’s been a while since we had an (intentional) discussion post, and this went over gangbusters when I asked it offhand on Twitter the other day, so: What was your entry point into fandom? Not the Star Wars movies or books themselves, but the/an actual community? When did you become social with your fandom, and begin to interact with other fans, beyond just your immediate pals?

Answers on Twitter ranged from various message boards, to cons, costuming, games, fanfic and even Twitter itself. So where did you come in?

Discussion: Let’s talk Celebration VI

Yes, SDCC is literally right around the corner and we have more than a month to go before Orlando, but it’s Friday, nothing is happening, and we haven’t had one of these in a while.

What are your plans for CVI? Are there any last minute announcements you’re still hoping for? Rumors that have yet to pan out? What do you really want to do at the con?
