On The Shelf: The Official Star Wars Timeline Canon!

On The Shelf: The Official Star Wars Timeline Canon!


So I’ve had several requests from readers and from the my fellow staffers so I should have done this far sooner. So I dedicate this posting to Hannah and Susannah! Here ya go ladies. Maybe I should just print this, fold them into paper airplanes, and thrown them across the office at ya. Never mind, I probably couldn’t make it over Hannah’s stacks of books anyways, lol.

Now keep in mind folks, this is just books, films, and TV shows. This doesn’t include the comics. I’m going to have to do a completely separate topic just for those because there are a lot of them. So, in the meantime, get to reading these. I already have, so most of you are already way behind, get on it!  And by the way…… I’m working way too dang hard on my birthday today!! 

  As always, i’d love to hear from any and all of you. Cheers and blessing to you all!



  1. Yusss! This is the post I’ve been looking for. Thank you so much, Goody! I’m excited to add these to my ever growing stack of books. :)
    Also, happy birthday! Hope you had a blast.

  2. Awesome, thanks so much for the list, Goody. Wow, there’s quite a lot that aren’t released yet. I’ll get onto those and I may even have to print it out as I’ll constantly use it as reference!
    By the way, you should seriously write a Star Wars book. You’ve got the knowledge. And happy belated birthday to you!
