Just for fun. What was the first star wars novel you ever read?

I'll start, the Heir to the empire trilogy was my first and I have never looked back.

X-wing: Rogue Squadron. Since then I have read nearly every novel out there including (shudder) The Crystal Star.

X wing:Rogue Squadron as well. I liked rogue group in tESB and was hoping that it was about that rogue squadron but then discovered it was about the new rogue squadron after the movies and had great fun reading the next few novels in the series but never got around to reading them all.

Star Wars by George Lucas^W^WAlan Dean Foster.

If you mean original novel rather than movie novelization, then Splinter of the Mind's Eye.

Mine was Shadows of the Empire! It was awesome and I have been reading them ever since! I have read over 110, so I still have a long way to go. I think that is little over half the books. Timothy Zhan and Karen Traviss are my favorites! Zhan is a nuance genius!

If we aren't counting movie novelizations...

Unfortunately, "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" was my first.

Now, the first one I liked and didn't fall asleep reading was "Heir to the Empire". Zahn KNOWS how to tell a story and keep people interested.

Mine was the Jedi Academy series(or whatever it's called. the one with Luke starting the Jedi Order back up).
Then I read the Thrawn trilogy(going backwards I know.)

I think my first was an ESB comic that my cousins used to have. After that it was the Jedi Prince kids books, but the first of the 'adult' SW books I read was Heir To The Empire. It was awesome.
