June 28th is a special day in ebook releases. On this day Lucas Arts books & Spectra & Del Rey are releasing ALL Star Wars books that haven't already been released as ebooks. This means that over a hundred Star Wars books are being released this day, and they are all available for pre-order right now.
(A couple of other books are also being released, but right now it is the Star Wars day.
Below are a few of my favorite Star Wars books.
