If you’re just getting started: The Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn. Ask any Star Wars reader what book to start with, and nine times out of 10, you’ll get the same answer: Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy. Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command kicked off the Expanded Universe, written as the third trilogy decades before The Force Awakens arrived. They’re smart; they introduce some amazing figures such as Grand Admiral Thrawn and Mara Jade, a former Imperial assassin who eventually becomes Luke Skywalker’s wife; and they hold up extremely well years after they were published.

I also like that you can choose from 1-Zone or 5-Zone heart rate settings. This is just how the Fuse and the Mio Go app break down your heart rate zones: 1-Zone has three levels (below target, target zone, and above target) while 5-Zone has five levels (rest, very light, light, moderate, hard, and maximum). 1-Zone is perfect for anyone trying to reach a certain heart rate, and 5-Zone is good for people like me who just want to see how far they can push themselves to get their heart rate as high as possible. … [Read more...] about Mio Fuse reviewed: A fitness band that works better than it looks
“With #WarGames I was thrilled to take the questions raised by the original movie and ask them again in a world where technology has fundamentally changed our lives," Barlow said in the game's press release. “I am excited to introduce viewers to the new hacker protagonist, Kelly, who represents the breadth of modern hacker culture and its humanity. As viewers help steer her story, I hope they will fall in love with her as much as the #WarGames team did.” … [Read more...] about Shall we play a game?
