How long, on average, does it take you to read one Star Trek novel?
Depends entirely on the size, but generally in one day I can get through one. No longer than two or three days. This is a long term project.

Wow even if I read nothing but Trek this would take me about two decades.
Like I said above, long term project, though I hope in two or three years I can get through them.

I'm following the publication order. I would have liked to do a chronological order but difficult to work out exactly where everything fits... I'll post tomorrow the first ten or twenty books and hopefully my first review of The Motion Picture.

Give yourself an extra few weeks for Probe, that bastard is a tough read...
Thanks for the advice!

Just finished rereading The Captains' honour and I had forgotten just how downright strange some of it was.
Funny how wrong some assumptions made by the authors look in hindsight.
Anyhow,best of luck with your quest.
Thanks! I'm on to The Klingon Gambit at the moment and some of it is quite... !
Regarding the Chronological Order: This Blogger here is trying to do exactly that:
But in the end it doesen't matter in which order you read them. I guess you could even read them sorted alphabetically by author or title, it would still be one hell of a challenge. After all, we're talking about 566 books at the moment, that's more than most people read in their entire life...
I for myself don't follow a strict order, except that I usually switch between a newer and an older novel. And since there are so many other interesting things to read, I usually manage to read only about 20 to 25 Trek-Books per year, amounting to 345 read novels since I started collecting about 12 years ago.
