Hello Friends!

I am off to a slow start this year due to weather, crazy kids, and an overall feeling of exhaustion. I did not hit 75 books last year, but I also stopped tracking all the comics I blew through. Hopefully, this year will be better.

For those who don't know me, I'm a huge Star Wars fan. Over the past year and a half, really since November 2016, I've immersed myself in the galaxy far, far away as well as several comic book locales. I'm finding myself happier since doing so. This is a big break from the books I used to read - almost all non-fiction and much U.S. Presidential History. Hence the name for this year's thread. Although only two books are scheduled from Del Ray for the new canon. There is plenty in the old Expanded Universe to delve into.

This thread may end up being more list than a chatty place, so please forgive me in advance.

January:
1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling (reading aloud to my oldest son)
2. Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View by various.

Welcome back! Reading aloud with kids is definitely fun! Glad you're getting to enjoy the HPs with him!

Book 5 - Artemis by Andy Weir.

No matter how I tried to get into this, I could not get into this. I just did not find it that interesting. I listened to it and Rosario Dawson did a phenomenal job narrating, but it was just not for me. Which is too bad, because I really enjoyed The Martian.

Currently reading:
Canto Bight
Harry Potter and Order of the Phoenix

Quick update that I finished the trilogy A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab and it was fantastic! I highly recommend (although the 3rd book is a bit longer than necessary).
