Wicket and Pixie were as excited as I am about the newest addition to our library. The Star Wars Complete Encyclopedia is crammed full of every detail you could possibly need to know. The secrets of the galaxy far far away will be revealed within the pages. Luckily for my dogs, the books are also full of illustrations. They can’t exactly read very well.

Thirty years’ worth of information is packed inside of these little beauties. You’ll find everything Star Wars from science and technology to history, geography, culture, biography and ecology! This encyclopedia was last updated over ten years ago, so you can imagine what new treasures you’ll uncover with this edition. In that decade, there have been four new feature films, several official novels, new comic books and several video games. All of this has been included for your learning enjoyment.

To give you a small taste of what you’ll find:

  • Character portraits of both the renowned (Luke Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Darth Vader) and the obscure (Tnun Bdu, Tycho Celchu, Bib Fortuna)
  • The natives and customs of planets as diverse as Tatooine and Hoth, Dagobah and Kashyyyk
  • The rituals, secrets, and traditions of Jedi Knights and Sith Lords
  • A timeline of major events in Star Wars history, from the Clone Wars and the inception of the Empire to the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker and the invasion of the monstrous Yuuzhan Vong

I have a feeling I won’t be sleeping much this weekend. I’ll be too busy reading every line of these three tomes to remember to pass out. I want to have the world’s geekiest library one day, so help me out by sending me your book suggestions.
