I was at Waldenbooks last night and their sign said Jan. 28 or 29. I can't remember exactly which. It's a must read on my list!

Yeah! I've got a $20 WaldenBooks Gift Certificate that is just waiting for Storm to hit the shelves!

Isn't the next NJO book coming out Tuesday as well? And the final Jedi Apprentice book?

Between three Star Wars books and the Atlantis DVD, I might need to sell my arm! :)

El Chuxter, you're right on the NJO coming out next week, but the Jedi Apprentice book that should be out, is not the LAST one. There's to be a second "special edition" as well. Check out my
Juvenile books (http://www.twinsuntimes.com/toyforce/juvenile.htm) list to see what's currenlty due out in the Jedi Apprentice line.

I think that the Jedi Apprentice series is great, but it does need to end at some point. I'll miss the "The" series (will ANY book not start with "The [something] of [something]?" :p ) I just wish I had the time I used to in order to actually read nowadays. :(

I've heard that Jude Watson's books are very book. I haven't had a chance to read any myself.

I'm only on #7 of the TJA series. It's nice to know I won't be perpetually behind. I only read those ( and usually two of three at a time) when I have nothing else on my night stand. Recently I've been rereading The LOTR trilogy (I read FOTR and TTT and also the Hobbit) and I also just read Ambrose's Band of Brothers which I got for Christmas, and that got me interested in WWII, so I picked up Ambrose's D-Day book. After that it's either The Return of the King or the Approaching Storm, and then the new NJO book, plus all my homework reading (Politics, psychology, sociology, and Media Consumerism) so I doubt I'll get to the next Jedi Apprentice for quite some time.

Actually, Rollo, the good thing about the JA series is that the books are short (120-170 pages). I can read a whole book whil ein the bathroom! (Uh, did I just say that? D'oh!) I mean, on a trip to the grocery store. Yeah! Whew! Now they'll believe that! :D
I too have a gift card to B n N awaiting some good SW books, but hardcovers get read from the library and bought when the softcover is released.

I actually have several of the JA books, but I've only read the first one. They've taken a backseat to NJO and the X-Wing series of books. I also have several Jr. Jedi Knights, Young Jedi Knights, Galaxy of Fear, etc. that are waiting to be read. I'll be reading for the next 10 years at this rate.:crazed:

I saw Approaching Storm at a local Wal-Mart Saturday (a few days early). I didn't pick it up, since I too have Waldenbooks coupons to use, but you might wanna check if you're in a hurry to read it. :)

Bel-Cam, I know people, including myself, who do some of their best reading while in the bathroom. It's nothing to be ashamed of.
