I want to see if I start reading them, but would like to know how many are they right now. Thanks

TL;DR: Just buy Disney stock. They will make money hand over foot.

I won't provide a full list of books here because first, it's fluid, and growing. Second, far better places on internet track them, such as:

To answer "How Many?" question:

According to Wookieepedia timline, at this time (2015/12/19) there exists:

  • 7 Adult books (of them, 1 game tie-in, and 5 are set before battle of Endor, so no direct tie-in to TFA)

    This list doesn't yet contain official Alan Dean Foster novelization of The Force Awakens, which was released yesterday December 18, 2015 digitally but not in dead tree form till January.

  • 17 Young Adult novels

    3 of them are Junior novelizations of the Original Trilogy. Because Disney can always siphon more money from the kids so adult novelizations aren't enough.

  • There also exist too-numerous-to-bother-counting comics and short stories

    Includes graphics novels.

    Mostly includes things printed in magazines like Star Wars Insider etc...

  • Btw started reading the novelization of TFA, Its Awsome. Commented Dec 21, 2015 at 23:24
  • Hmm. I'm debating whether to collapse this into my "canonicity" mega-answer.
