Ah I see...okay. I thought there was a different issue here.
To the original poster of the thread...welcome! As to where you should begin, I don't think there is a specific answer to that. I know that one of my first books that I read in Trek Lit was the novelization for "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country". I followed that up with Peter David's "Imzadi". I think it really just depends on what facet of Trek you are interested in.
