I just finished up the Jedi Apprentice series over the past week. I read #13-18 and the 2nd Spec Ed. So now I'm ready to start in on the Jedi Quest series. I've purchased the first three softcovers but have been waiting to read them. Nows the time. The new NJO isn't due out until November. I'll let you know what I think of them in a few weeks.
