    Since my vacation ended I have a hard time finding time to relax and read, so I'm still in the middle of a Star Wars novel, Enemy Lines: Rebel Dream. I miss having more time to read, I made it through 3 or 4 books in that two week vacation and it was awesome!

    I love that series, just finished rereading the first four books. Have you read Lord of Light?

    'The Definitive Book of Body Language' by Allan & Barbara Pease

    I actually have a few books I'm working on simultaneously - a survival story and one book about Ed Gein.

    Would either of you have suggestions on where to start if one wanted to begin reading the Star Wars books?

    That depends if you prefer the prequels or the classic Star Wars. If it's the latter I'd start with Timothy Zahn's "Thrawn Trilogy". Heir to the Empire is the first book of that trilogy.

    I agree. I'm also a big Sith fan & I love the Darth Bane books. Explains the rule of two story line etc. The old republic era novels are great.

    I absolutely loved the Zahn Star Wars novels back when I was interested in them. It's been many years since I read one and wouldn't know where to start up again.
    I'm still on a huge Warhammer 40k kick. I have a few more waiting for me when I'm done with 'Tales of Heresy' as I'm around halfway through this anthology. I also have some Warhammer (regular) novels to read but I tend to enjoy these less even if it's by authors I usually enjoy.
    I don't play the game though. However I did paint miniatures during my teens.

    I have this series in my TBR. Horus heresy I think. My last sup at work told me about this. Too many books, not enough time.
