... Though from a story-flow perspective, it might be better to read the first four TTN books, then the four TNG-R books, then Destiny.
This is what I'd recommend.

I read the second volume of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier comic book arc yesterday and Tuesday. I really enjoyed it. Whileit was very different, there were still a lot of interesting parallels with the movies.

I am sorry, but dumb question. What does TTN stand for?

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Must read more Star Trek. However, I just finished reading "Night" (translated by Marion Wiesel) by Elie Wiesel (2006 translation). About two-thirds of the way through, I listened to Barbara Streisand sing "Memory" from Cats. Its meaning has changed. Much has changed. I may not "select" text again the same.

After finishing up Seekers #1, I'm gonna get back into DS9: Twilight, as that was what I was reading before Seekers got to my door. I'm also hip deep in new comics as the first wednesday post-ComicCon is always a huge week for new books

I finished Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Light Fantastic.

I'm currently reading Being Human: The Road by Simon Guerrier.

Finished the Veronica Mars novel over Shore Leave. A fun read that really captures the feel of the TV show and movie . ...

I'm really enjoying it! I'm a fan of DRG3 from previous works, but this one is shaping up to be one of my favorites by him. I'm only about 200 pages in as the text is small and I end up taking more breaks than usual...which is fine as I don't mind this one dragging out

I just finished Titan: Taking Wing. I think I'll continue straight into The Red King, but I'm also considering reading Articles of the Federation next.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Professor Bernice Summerfield and the Squire's Crystal. Not a bad read, some great body/gender swap gags and Jaqueline Rayner really gets Benny's character and voice perfect. I was going to start the Cold Equations books, but my copy of Doctor Who: Engines of War just arrived from Britain. Excited to get a War Doctor story.

Not sure why these Benny books have been such a slog to read while Trek books I've been able to tear through.
