If I have to pick, it would be book 1 because I love to ask who did Hagrid borrow the motorcycle from to bring baby HP to his aunt and uncle and, more importantly, because that's where it was said that one day children all over the world would know about HP. And that is before J K had published anything!
I cannot choose between HP and Hermione although I can kinda understand why they did not marry each other.
No answer yet
I, a grandad, got started on book 1 after book 3 came out. A Belgian girl I had met in India when she was 11, eight years ago, "required" me to read HP. I have seen all the movies and the final movie 3 times so far, twice on the day it came out.
What an essential group for us as we must live among the Dumb "A"s!
