And Now, Something Completely Different

Recently, I finally finished one of my birthday books. Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, written by Sean Stewart, overall is the best Star Wars book I've read in quite some time with three really engaging lightsaber battles but, to be more accurate, the last 100 pages was the best Star Wars novel I've ever read in my life. Yoda has always been one of my favorite characters and the dialogue/interaction between him and Count Dooku was really good. Obviously, since most novels take place after the movies, they can't have the old Jedi Master in them but I was really hoping here to get more of him here. What species is he? Why is he the only member of his race ever even mentioned? What about the rest of his backstory? No answers to any of these questions were present here. While it's impossible to skip the first 230 pages, I do recomend this novel to all those who didn't dislike the storyline of the prequel movies and to those who miss reading Star Wars novels that don't totally suck.

My recovery is steadily progressing. I went to church on Sunday and have been out a couple other times. (This doesn't include doctor's and PT). Speaking of PT, I had two new exercises added to my routine so I have seven now. About half of them are similar to exercises I've been given in the past to heal during the dislocations so there's a sense of familiarity there.
