    Wedge's Gamble. I bought it for the train when I was like ten, didn't read it. Then picked it up one day when I was about sixteen and was hooked. I now own every book (novel) in the EU. YES!!

    Id read various SW lit( comics, kids books, etc)throughout my misspent youth, but my first REAL intro into the EU was Timothy Zahn's masterpiece, Heir To the Empire. ;)

    The first star wars book I ever remember reading was back in the mid 80s. I think it was called droid world, and audio read along book. I'm not sure. one really corny line sticks in my head even over all these years- some cyborg dude says something like "we have victory, but at what cost?". scarred me for life that did....

    anyway, I always liked star wars since I was a kid, ESB was the first movie I remember seeing. Then about 5 years ago when I was 14 or so I bought tales of the mos eisley cantina- thats what got me into star wars in a major way. I've been hooked since then and have read every books up to conquest released by bantam or njo. its a beautiful thing isn't it?

    I read most of the YJK and JJK before reading any "Adult" novel. My first "Adult" novel was Jedi Search.

    First encounter with SW: In the early 90's, the RotJ record read-along, back when I thought RotJ was the 2nd movie and ESB was the last one.

    First comic: Dark Empire #4 a year later.

    First "real" SW novel: Heir to the Empire after suggestions around here I think.

    Rogue Squadron, the very first X wing book. My cousin left it off at my house when I was like 9 or 10 and I decided to read it and whalah. I loved it, and started reading EVERY SINGLE STARWARS BOOK i could get my hands on.

    X-Wing: Rogue Squadron was my first. I loved it, and immediately went to Heir to the Empire.

    I've been hooked ever since, and went on a binge. I read every novel I could get my hands on. Now, I've read them all. Well, except for Conquest. I'll get to that when I'm done with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

    Heir to the Empire.

    A friend passed it on to me a couple of summers ago and I have literally not been the same since.

    I'll get him for that, oh yes, if it's the last thing I do.......

    Paradise Snare. Got it for my birthday in August of '99, and haven't stopped reading 'em since.

    It's also the earliest book in the Bantam line, and it started me on an ill-fated quest to read the entire EU in chronological order.

    I made it about as far as Truce at Bakura. :)

    I'm pretty sure it was Lando Calrissian and the Flamewind of Oseon. I was 8 and I don't think I understood it all that well. I read Mindharp of Sharu a couple years later (found it at a yard sale) and that made more of an impact. My freshman year I read SotME and Han Solo's Revenge. Got HttE for my birthday when it came out.

    Jedi Apprentice #1, easy reading I know, but they're one of my guilty little pleasures. That and making a scale model of the Millenium Falcon out of leftover pizza.
