May the Fourth Be With You--Again

This has to be one of the favorite days of the year for GUYS! "And just why is that?" you may ask. Because today is May 4, aka May the Fourth Be With You. Or Star Wars Day. Which makes this day great because just about all boys everyone LOVE Star Wars.

In fact, this whole month is special because it marks the 40th anniversary of the premiere of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Yep, it was May 25, 1977. The day that introduced Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Death Star, the Millennium Falcon, C3PIO and R2-D2 to the world.

And the world has been a lot more fun ever since.

Anyway, I'll talk more about it this month. I hope to recommend a few books to you, ask which one of the movies is your favorite, etc. etc. But, for today, let me show a few things that I've liked, along with links to the original reviews:

Star Wars: The Original Trilogy 


The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight

Very good retellings of the original trilogy and good reminders why we love this story so much

Star Wars The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary

Oh, yeah! The saga continues! This is the book for anyone who enjoyed this movie. Lots of photos, lots of cool information and a good introduction that gives you the backstory to this movie.

Plus, the library system has copies of all the movies. And lots of SW graphic novels. Even audiobooks! So head on down to your library and pick one up!

So You Want To Be A Jedi?
