Awesome finds at fun little book shops in the West Virginia and the other Virginia. I believe in buying used books, keeping them in good shape and giving them more than one life.
From top to bottom:
- The New Rebellion (1996)
- X-Wing: Iron Fist (1998)
- Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina (1995)
- A Guide to the Star Wars Universe (1984)
- Splinter of the Mind’s Eye (1978 but couldn’t find the date of this reprint)

Shout-outs to Books and Other Found Things in Leesburg, Virginia and Fuzzy Dog Books and Music in Charles Town, West Virginia. Might I add that Fuzzy Dog had possibly the best organized Star Wars section I’ve ever seen, with every arc/series grouped together. It wasn’t in chronological order, but at least some order helps when you’re hunting down bits and pieces of larger series!
The Empire grows stronger with the addition of a cold-climate range trooper, elite Death Star trooper, cunning Grand Moff Tarkin, and the ever-useful IT-O interrogator droid. I lucked out big at Target on two successive trips – and here I thought I’d have to hunt a while for Tarkin.
And thanks to a used book shop not far from home (Last Exit books in Kent, Ohio) I managed to pick up quite a few legends novels (as well as a new copy of Streets of Shadows from Barnes and Noble and Last Shot, which was on sale at Target) These will all make fine additions to my collection and backlog of Legends series I still need to read through, though Last Shot will probably come next seeing as Solo arrives next month.
Thanks for reading!

My Target finally had these handsome heroes in stock. Shame they didn’t have a friend for my man in red but I do love clones as well!
