I've only ever read a few of those but they were ok. Sounds like you and your Mom will have plenty to read for a while and you sure can't beat that price!

That is a really good deal.

I've never read any of them, but my parents have gotten tons of them. I can't give you an exact number because most of them are still in boxes because they were never unpacked after my parents bought our house, and that was almost 11 years ago.

Wow, that sounds like a great deal. I always see all the star trek books when I go to the library, but I only ever checked and read one out--the first Voyager one. I thought it was excellently written and I was pleasantly surprised, unfortunately I had a really hard time finding any other books in that particular Voyager series and just gave up on it. Well, it is summer and all I have to do is work 40 hours a week, maybe I'll have time to pick up the series and read more of it!

Happy reading to you!

The 3rd book of Voyager is Ragnarok if that helps.

I remeber my mom Cookie doing the same thing for me. We stoped at a rummage sale. With a computer box (one which blank paper) for office usefull of Star Trek (R). softcovers. I got two or three can't recall how many out that box. I wish I could have the whole box. Little did I know that my mom sold a basket full of just picked rubarb from my her mom (my grandma) garden to a someone, came back and bought home that box full of Star Trek (r) for me.

Far as I know it still stuck at my dad place box with cover and books and all, on top of my old bedroom dresser. I say that my mom is now gone and dad and his new wife into a storage room right now. But, not too me. Dad, She, and I get along great. But it somewhat of a story with a nice twist in it mabe later I write it up not right now.

Wow, really good find. I have never read the Star Trek series books, but I have seen every tv show and movie out there. (More times than I would admit)
