Oh, I used to read all the magazines I delivered! And all the comics. The nursing times was one of my favourite reads. Then at the age of 13, somebody decided to launch 'the Sport' newspaper. That certainly made the round slower. Strange, you'd often find you were delivering the financial times and the sport to the same address :) I did the same round for about 2 years, and there were complaints when I left. :)

Ahhh i have seen this around, is it not done like the "what if" version before Lucas totally change the screen play to what we know today?

Had a few SW reads of late on the kindle, Death Star was a dam fine book. Been reading the old classics like the Han Solo trilogy books, Splinter of the minds eye, the film novelisations and a few prequel books around the time of Anakins young Padawan days.

I have looked at the three books that are like "life and times of.." based on Anakin / Vader, Obi-Wan and Luke. Not bad but mainly for kids. The Luke book offeres an interesting part on him looking for information on Anakin and finding something of interest from a Pod Racer character from EP1.

Didn't think I'd like them, or maybe I didn't want to, but the new Marvel titles are all very well done.
I'm a bit behind the times but I love the fact you get a free digital version which I download to read on my kindle and so keep my purchases fresh and smelling of the day I bought them.
The 3 titles , Star Wars, Darth Vader and Princess Leia all link up and are very well done. Can't believe they got Mark Waid on-board too as he's one of the best writers IMHO.

Like the digital side too, makes things of interest a bloody dam sight more portable.
