Hello friends,
I just have a quick question about the Jedi Academy Trilogy and I, Jedi. Which one should I read first? I was going to read the trilogy first but I heard they take place at the same time. I want to read both so if anyone could tell me which one to read first it would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Flashbacks! I remember being in this exact predicament many years ago. I had no one to guide me at the time, and tried to follow things chronologically.

There is not really an ideal order for these two, since they do step on one another, but I would read Jedi Academy first. That way I, Jedi doesn't give spoilers! Smile

Yeah I'm a little late but I just recently got into the books. Thank you for the help though!

The Jedi Academy Trilogy came out first. I generally recommend reading in publishing order, since that's how they were written and released. They typically make more sense that way.

Agreed, definitely publication order. Besides if you read JA first, I, Jedi just spices it up. But if you read them the other way, JA will just ruin I, Jedi, IMO.

I agree. Ultimately, I, Jedi makes a bunch of references to the stuff in the Jedi Academy Trilogy, and then goes above and beyond them (essentially placing an additional character in many of the situations described previously). You'll be missing out on a bunch of context if you read I, Jedi first.
