A Treasure Find: Obsessed With Star Wars (Book)

Me and my sons Julian Kael and Jerald Kervin went to a mall last night for dinner at a famous fast food restaurant to celebrate Kervin's latest achievement as one of the top honor students in his class at the Colegio de la Inmaculada Concepcion Mandaue.

It is always our habit to make it a point to drop by at the various book shops in a mall to check out their books. After Kervin found what he liked, a book on "How to Draw The Best of Nickelodeon" from Walter Foster Publishing Inc. and me carting my favorite hobby magazine the "Model Railroader", I decided to search for more specifically Star Wars books to add to my SW collection. I wasted no time in buying some older issues such as the "Star Wars Episode 1: Watch Out, Jar Jar! from Random House", "Star Wars: The Story of Darth Vader" from DK Readers, "Star Wars Jedi Apprentice: The Mark of the Crown" and Star Wars: Last of the Jedi" both from Scholastic Inc.

As I pursued further among the shelves, what caught my fancy was this hardbound book "Obsessed with Star Wars" by Benjamin Harper from Chronicle Books. Immediately I fell in love with it and bought it to add to my Star Wars Collection. I only knew later that what I just bought was a treasure!

What's so special about this book is that it is a must have for all serious Star Wars collectors. I checked out the different reviews online and indeed, it got a perfect 5-star rating from everyone.

To quote Google books "..even the most die-hard Star Wars fans will find themselves challenged by this entertaining new approach to the details of the saga. This fourth volume in the popular, addictive Obsessed With series again includes an innovative scoring module right in the book, so a player can select questions by number or at random and keep score. With 2,500 original questions covering little known facts, entertaining quotes, and tough trivia from all six episodes, Obsessed With Star Wars will have readers dominating the galaxy in no time".
