The Approaching Storm and the first several Jedi Apprentice books (bought simultaneously).
First EU I ever owned was for sure a video game. I'm just not sure which one. Rogue Squadron 2 perhaps, or maybe the 2002 Clone Wars game.
First EU book I owned (not counting movie novelizations, which I pretty much consider EU) might have been Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor. But the first EU book I ever read years before that was Zorba the Hutt's Revenge. Haha.
Heir to the Empire when it first came out and then i drove myself crazy waiting for book two and three!
I can't for the life of me remember which one precisely that I read first. My local library has a huge chunk of the novels between ROTJ and the NJO. I remember checking them out three to four at a time every other week. That was pretty much my life back then, reading the EU and school lol. I'm thinking it's probably The Truce at Bakura or The Thrawn Trilogy. Or it might even be The Courtship of Princess Leia. Anywho, definitely something around that timeline.
However if we count video-games, then it's most definitely the first Rogue Squadron game on PC. Which I quickly migrated to Rogue Leader and Rebel Strike on Gamecube since I never could get pass that walker mission on Corellia, stupid tow cable refusing to stay attached XD
Probably The Wookie Storybook.

The second edition of A Guide to the Star Wars Universe. At least, I think this was the first EU thing I owned. I still have it somewhere.
Legacy of the force: Fury
My first EU books were the Jedi Quest series by Jude Watson. As you can tell by my user name, I grew up reading those books and the related series'. I was disappointed with the way Ferus was shown in the Rebel Force series. The first adult Star Wars books I read were the Thrawn Trilogy, introducing me to the post ROTJ era. My favorite EU characters are Jacen Solo and Ferus Olin.
My pride and joy is still my Mara Jade heir to the empire action figure from 1998....god I love it so much like a super geek hehehe
This and it's probably still my favorite "EU" book to this day. It has great info, everything from Victory Class star destroyers, to blasters, lightsaber tech, speeder bikes, all sorts of capitol ships and freighters, all the way to rebel agents and aliens seen in the original trilogy. It's just fantastic.
But, then again, I have always preferred encyclopedias to novels.
The Last of the jedi, boba fett, and Jedi quest books.
The Thrawn Trilogy when I was 13 and a half.
Pretty sure it was Star Wars: Clone Wars Volume 2 in 2005. I got Volume 1 shortly after. The first graphic novel I got was Star Wars Clone Wars Volume 7: When They Were Brothers. I finally got my first adult Star Wars novels in 2013 which was The Dark Lord Trilogy compilation.
Heir to the Empire, I would have been 13ish.
I would have to go with Star Wars Bounty Hunter, the gamecube game about jango fett, I was about 3 but I did sorta play it with my dad.
The first EU book I remember owning was Jedi Search and the rest of the Jedi Academy trilogy.
For video games, it was the Lucasarts Archives Vol. II. Star Wars Collection pack. You got Rebel Assault, Rebel Assault II, Tie Fighter, the first three levels of Dark Forces, and the Making Magic CD-ROM that showed the production of the Special Editions. I played the crap out of those games. I broke a joystick (granted it was a cheap one) playing Rebel Assault II and Tie Fighter so much.
The first EU book I recall owning was probably The Essential Guide To Droids. I read through every kriffing page of that book as a little kid. I learned about Dark Side Technobeasts, while my friends were learning Stormtroopers weren't robots.
Nintendo 64, Shadows of the Empire.
1st novel in the Zahn trilogy that came out in early 90's.
I just got the Darth revan novel, and I'm starting kotor soon
Thrawn Trilogy.....and I still have them.
Some of the Jedi Apprentice books is what I started on
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron for N64.
Rebel Force, but only the first book, and it took me a while to get the rest, unfortunately. I was in suspense for a while.
