Must Have Books for Your Star Wars Collection

Must Have Books for Your Star Wars Collection

I collect books. A habit that my son has happily inherited. While, he does enjoy fictional novels, he has always preferred reading non-fiction, which I guess he inherited from both of us. This has made it easier to find quality books for him to read. Many of these Star Wars books are great for the engineering mind! Encyclopedia-like books related to science and his love of sci-fi are his favorites. (My husband’s too!)

For another I love you present last year, I made him this Star Wars O-H-I-O sign to hang up in his home office. This sign is one of the few things I like about his home office.

Our May Bookshelf

Monthly suggestions from the Milk and Cookies bookworms From Mom Books from Mary Roberts Rinehart: This author is dubbed as the American Agatha Christie. I’ve read so many Agatha Christie books over the past year, that I decided to go hunting for similar authors. She came up very high in the list of recommendations. I am on my second book and am very pleased! I would love more recommendations for similar mystery authors. Pirate Queen: I love everything Morgan Llywelyn writes and this book was no exception. It tells the story of Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen and most feared woman in Ireland.…
