Books for Star Wars Day – May the 4th Be With You!

Alongside the success of The Force Awakens and the eager anticipation for the upcoming spin-off Rogue One, there are rumours abounding that the next Star Wars film’s full title will be announced on what has now become known as Star Wars Day – May the 4th. It’s fair to say there’s never been a better time to be a fan of the saga from a galaxy far, far away.

Of course, with all this coming up, many young Jedi need to learn about their new favourites and where better to do this than in an out-of-this-world book? Here at Book People, we have so many intergalactic books for Star Wars fans and they’re so good, they’d even keep a Wookiee happily engrossed (we could say we have ‘brilliant bookies for Wookiees’; we could also claim ‘Chew need these’…). Among these books, which are all available at unbelievable prices are the below:

Books about Star Wars The Force Awakens 2015 new film books dictionary stickers cross sections

The long-awaited seventh episode in the Star Wars saga – The Force Awakens – hits cinemas this weekend and plot details are still fairly tightly under wraps. We’ve all bought our tickets at Book People and can’t wait to see Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker (possibly?) back on the big screen. We’re also excited to see the new cast members including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver in action as well as the new aliens, droids and incredible special effects.

While the whole world goes Star Wars crazy once again, it can’t have escaped your notice that Christmas is just around the corner – in fact, it’s next week. If you’re buying for anyone obsessed with all things from a galaxy far, far away, we have a special offer to make their Christmas Day that little bit more out of this world.

Star Wars The Force Awakens books special offer

We have three books based on The Force Awakens in stock and they are all available for half-price. We also have a very special offer where you can buy all three for just £15.

You’ll find the Ultimate Sticker Book where you can add stickers to the scenes from the brand new film; The Visual Dictionary will tell you all you need to know about the Force Awakens’ new heroes and villains; and Incredible Cross-Sections reveals the details about the new spacecraft in the Star Wars universe.

Great gifts for fans of the Star Wars films

It’s now less than six weeks before we can all take our seats in the cinema to enjoy the new Star Wars film. Although plot details remain scarce about Episode VII: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams’ film has already broken presale records and the three brief trailers have gone down a storm(trooper)… But just where is Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker?

As has been stated many times before, Star Wars is a phenomenon – and it’s only set to get bigger with the latest trilogy of films and its various spin-offs. Harking back to practical effects and with original cast members returning to their iconic roles, we imagine this will be the biggest film ever made. But in the run-up to the film’s release and in its aftermath, you and any fan of the galaxy far, far away are going to want to surround yourself with Star Wars books and gifts.

And that’s where Book People comes in…

Any Jedi or Sith will find plenty to love in our hand-picked selection of Star Wars goodies. With the new film conveniently being released in the week leading up to Christmas, why not buy your presents and make some unbelievable savings at the same time.
