East Coast Road Trip Haul (2019)

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)
  • Shield of Lies (1996)
  • Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo and Chewbacca Adventure (2015)
  • The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure (2015)
  • Dark Forces: Soldier for the Empire (1998 reprint)
  • Dark Forces: Rebel Agent (1998)
  • Guide to the Star Wars Worlds Trilogy (2004)

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!
