My favourites are the Thrawn trilogy and the Jedi Academy trilogy. I also read the Lando Calrissian trilogy and the Han Solo trilogy. (star wars
sure loves trilogies...) I have read the two collections of short stories, Tales From Mos Eisley's Cantina and Tales From Jabba's Palace.
I got Cloak of Deception by James Luceno 2 or 3 years ago for Christmas, and I thought it was a pretty crappy book, myself, so I haven't read any of
the other ones written in the 'prequel' times, with young Anakin and all the rest.
I've also read the stories for the three original movies, and they are very good, as well, and have lots of extra stuff not featured in the movies.
People wondered how I knew that Anakin would fall into a pit of lava fighting with Obiwan in Revenge of the Sith, they thought I must've had a secret
wiretap in George Lucas' basement... but no, I had just read those books, where it explicitly told you that. Lots of other goodies in there, too.
