I love the original X-wing books, and have all of them . The only ones I liked in the second series were Solo Command and Starfighters of Adumar But if I would point anyone in the right direction to start from. I would have to say with the Han Solo trilogy, I loved it, a lot of people don't. But its a great place to start. Then the movie novels, then Truce at Bakura, the X-wing novels, then the EU stories. Only read the NJO if your completely dedicated.
