Stephen Van Ness | 101 comments Mod
Hi all, if anyone is still here. My name is Stephen, and I am apparently the only moderator on this group. Not only do I have no memory of being made a mod (because I'm pretty sure I was young and was the first person to post on a topic with literally no idea what that meant 7 years ago or so), but I also stopped using Goodreads for literally years. I've been using it again, and lo and behold I found a group of 400 users in which I am the only person in charge that has sputtered out and died (possibly due to the fact that there were literally no moderators here). So my multi-faceted question to you guys is this - is anybody still out there in this group? And to those of you who are still members and active users of Goodreads, are you interested in helping to revitalize this page? If there's interest, I'd bring a couple more people under the wing as moderators and we'd talk about changing things around and setting it up for a new Goodreads and a new era of Star Wars (though I would assume the focus would still be on Old Canon with New Canon sprinkled in). If not, I am planning on leaving this group, and will probably promote a couple random people to moderator so that the group has a chance to breathe again someday. I am also simply really curious if there are any users still active on this page. I have fond memories of this community back in my formative years, and I would very much be willing to pioneer a revival if there are still those out there who would be interested. Thanks all, and happy reading!

Hi everyone, I'm the same person as Rachael (who posted message 8 two years ago), I just created a new account. I will probably leave the group on my other account.

Well, I'm done with all of the movies, and I'm actually watching the last episode of The Mandalorian right now

Awesome! Did you have a favorite movie? I really enjoyed watching The Mandalorian but I especially loved the end credits theme music.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I liked the Mandalorian too, and I loved Return of the Jedi

Are you planning on watching the Clone Wars series? I've only watched like four episodes so far. I'm a little short on time and will be until the end of this year, so I don't know when I'll get to watch them but I want to.

Yes. And SW rebels

Jack (jackmane) | 7 comments Hi! I just found this group today and would love to help revitalize it. I'm a huge Star Wars fan due in large part to the books: Legends and Canon.

Alan Castree (acgalaga) | 3 comments Hello?!

(Hello... hello... hello...)

This looks like a good group for fans of the Star Wars expanded universe. I’m certainly more familiar with the new Canon. Got hooked after finish Clone Wars and reading the Ahsoka Novel.

Since then I’ve been trying to follow and get as caught up as possible with the new Canon. Currently only 30.2% through ALL the new material since Disney’s acquisition... I’m constantly rewarding the comics (one way or another) and tend to accumulate books faster than I can read them, so I may read “Queens Shadow” “A Phantom Menace (novelization)” or “Battlefront II - Inferno Squadron” next.

Nice to meet you and hope we can have some cool Star Wars EU discussions on Goodreads!

Welcome! I'm definitely still trying to catch up with the Legends books so I don't know if I'll ever be able to catch up with the new canon haha.


message 30: by P. (new)

P. Germain (chenryu) I haven't used Goodreads, in some time.
I have read a number, of Star Wars, novels, and graphic novels, mostly from the Expanded Universe, pre Disney.


message 31: by Alan (new)

Alan Castree (acgalaga) | 3 comments Cool! Welcome!!


message 32: by P. (new)

P. Germain (chenryu) Who began, this group?


message 33: by P. (new)

P. Germain (chenryu) For some reason, I thought that I may have begun it.
I was mistaken.
Has anyone read Sith focused novels, from the Expanded Universe?


message 34: by Rachael2 (new)

Rachael2 | 90 comments Mod
Welcome! I've read the Lost Tribe of the Sith series. I think they were briefly available to read online somewhere when they first came out, because they are just a series of short stories. So that's how I read them, but I don't know if you can do that anymore.


message 35: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan I am here. New to GR, as this is my first group post. I’ve recently got back into reading after a 12 year hiatus. I’m about to start Kenobi. I’d love to help out with this group, as I feel it will give me a sense of purpose and help solidify my new reading habit. My name is Jon, I’m 28, and I am an avid Star Wars fan. Kenobi will be my first Star Wars book, as for what Obi Wan does during the time between three and four has always been a wonder of mine. Help me help you all. Thanks for reading, if anyone is out there.


message 36: by Lisa (new)

Lisa | 3 comments Hello all.
I haven't read Kenobi as of yet, but I've heard good reviews of it.
I'm currently reading The High Republic series. I recently finished Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule and am now reading The Rising Storm by Cavan Scott. Anyone else reading this series?


message 37: by Tarria♪ (new)

Tarria♪ (tarria) | 2 comments I'm Tarria, also new to GR, I've read a handful of canon and legends novels (I love the Jude Watson books and anything prequel related)

Welcome! I love Jude Watson's Jedi Apprentice series. I hope they re-print them one day because they are so expensive now that they are out-of-print.
