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!

(In)Definite Article #1: Collecting, Past, Present, and Future

Collecting is all about value. But what does it mean to value something? Is something inherently valuable because of what it is, or what it represents to the collector? Questionably an article and not canon at all, read on to see some recent reflections I had on my collection habit. Continue reading “(In)Definite Article #1: Collecting, Past, Present, and Future”
