Star Wars Episode VII gets a Title

Wandering Euan’s euTube Extravaganza: I Have Returned

Okay, Euan’s not really back, that would be ridiculous. I’m just using his name for attention.

I’ve always wondered if I could do a better version of Wandering Euan’s euTube Extravaganza better than Euan himself. Actually, that’s a lie, I’ve always known that I could. So here is my attempt.

There is only one video. Chances are a lot of you will have seen it but if you have not it is worth the time because it is awesome.

Here is the summary…

So in the spirit of including all things Star Wars, I suppose a post about these under reported films is appropriate.

Here is some Episode VII news.

If You Like Star Wars and Book Clubs, Then This is the Post for You

I’m posting a lot about Star Wars today because today is May the 4th and I don’t know if you’re aware of it or not but that means today is Star Wars day. However, I’ve found that the Star Wars posts are generally well received so I might begin to post more of my thoughts on some of the novels I read and other important news as it comes along.

In that spirit, this post is pretty much just a plug for something I really enjoy that is Star Wars related.

If you are a fan of Star Wars, specifically the novels, I would like to take this Star Wars Day to make a recommendation.
