Carl is on hand with his recommendation of what to read whilst in self-quarantine.

To help beat the coronavirus blues, for the foreseeable future, members of team Future of the Force will be on hand with our recommendations of awesome literature to check out whilst in self-quarantine. Whether its lesser-known gems, New York Times Best-Sellers, or just funs reads – we’ll be here to keep you entertained during this difficult time.


The Star Wars Trilogy

Most of us out there probably already have the novels in their original paperback forms but if you are one of the people who haven’t, then while we are all on lockdown and if you’ll permit me, may I suggest you either download or buy yourself a copy of the original trilogy novelizations. You can quite easily pick up a paperback copy from an online retailer or download it to the e-reader of your choice and will cost you peanuts.

The best version of it in paperback at the moment is the 40th-anniversary edition. Here, the book has a gold tint to it alongside a representation of half of Darth Vader’s helmet. Inside, you will discover the original novels pertaining to the original trilogy. Star Wars is written by George Lucas himself, The Empire Strikes Back is written by Donald F. Glut while Return Of The Jedi is written by James Khan. All are very faithful to the films they are based on and in the case of Lucas’ Star Wars novel, it contains many scenes that didn’t make the final cut of the film.

Top Five | Star Wars: The Force Awakens

You can easily download them to an E-reader if that’s what you want to do and read them at your leisure. You’ll get hours of enjoyment and entertainment from the trilogy of books and will find yourself going back to them every now and then to re-read them as they do offer great re-reading ability. Check them out!

Star Wars The Original Trilogy

Let us know if you have any suggestions of great books and literature our readers should check out and we’ll feature and share them with the FOTF community.

Stay safe.
