Little Bro needs books

Well, I got my little brother (8 years old) hooked on the Jedi Quest series, so have started looking for other SW books that he could read. I started collecting the Jedi Apprentice books but have found that most of them are out of print. For future reading, I have gotten hold of all but two Young Jedi Knights books for him. What I want to know is if there is anyone who has any Jedi Apprentice books as well as the YJK books "Jedi Bounty" and "Crisis at Crystal Reef" that they would be willing to part with for a reasonable price.

He is really enjoying these books, and it is such a relief to see him doing something other than playing his game boy, so any help would be much appreciated.


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

OMG Jedi Knight 4!!!

Here and here.

I'd also suggest the Junior Jedi Knights. That is if you can find them for less than 250 bucks :/

I'm thankful I got all these books before they got so expensive :/

Star Wars :The Last of the Jedi, would be good for him if he's just seen the latest star wars movie, its a young readers book and wont fill his head with post return of the jedi nonsense!

Yeah, I got him all of the Jedi Quest books, the The Last of the Jedi Books, and the Boba Fett books. He's really blowing through them, so I'm after first the Jedi Apprentice books, then the last two Young Jedi Knights books.

Ahem, some of us enjoyed the Post RotJ books. (with the exception of most of the NJO) Good stuff no matter how much GL keeps de-cannonizing them.

I don't know much about Jedi Qest books and stuff, but I really liked Labyrinth of Evil (prequel to RotS), Shatterpoint (Mace Windu book), and the novelization of RotS was pretty good (it was written by the same author as Shatterpoint).

The NJO was better than the egotistical crap Zahn did.

ok im not a zahn or kevin j anderson fan i feel they were the worse starwars writers but then thats my opinion and like they say opinion are like arseholes everyones got one.

LOE would probably be a bit too much i think for a 8 year old

If the kid wants comic novels, then I'd suggest Dark Empire I and II, and maybe Tales of the Jedi (I still don't have them, I gotta have those!).
