Re: How far should I go with the Star Wars novels?

If you're going to include the movie novelizations, I'd also recommend the following:

Cloak of Deception
by James Luceno (before TPM)
Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter by Michael Reaves (between CoD and TPM)
The Phantom Menace by Terry Brooks
The Approaching Storm by Alan Dean Foster (between Outbound Flight and AOTC)
Attack of the Clones by R. A. Salvatore
Labyrinth of Evil by James Luceno (after Shatterpoint, leads directly into ROTS)
Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover
Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader by James Luceno (though I never finished this one)

I also forgot to include The Han Solo Trilogy (The Paradise Snare, The Hutt Gambit, Rebel Dawn) by A. C. Crispin, which I thought was pretty good. After that, you can go ahead with the ANH novelization, and then continue on from there.
