There's a few on here I hadn't heard of, like the Janeway book Mosaic.
If you're into Janeway, "The Captain's Table: Fire Ship" is a very strong solo Janeway novel, where she is lost to the "Voyager" crew for an extended period (between the episodes where she changes hairstyles.)

I totally agree with all of those choices by Dayton, and my only quibble with the readers' suggestions would be "Enterprise: The First Adventure", simply because Vonda McIntyre's "The Entropy Effect" (a real page-turner) and novelizations for ST II and III are vastly superior.

My other must-read for new readers would be "Strangers from the Sky" by Margaret Wander Bonanno. It is really epic in its scope, but touches base with TOS in so many ways.
I found Enterprise: The First Adventure to be awful. The story was just not worthy of Kirk's first voyage as captain of the Enterprise. Considering who wrote it, I'm surprised it is so bad.

There is one book I would swap out. I'd swap Mosaic for Fire Ship. I think the latter is a better book.
