When I was on vacation once (well, I say vacation but it was just a trip into nowhere-land to visit my extended family), my mom picked up the first three books from the grocery store since she heard they were good. I wasn't excited or anything but once we read the first chapter together, I was absolutely hooked. A week later, by the time we were on the plane home, I was starting the third book and then a few days after that, began the agonizingly long wait for book 4. XD;

I don't remember exactly when that was though. All I know is that it was recent enough that Philosopher's Stone is a paperback... but the other two are hardcover and, I think, first prints. (And PS is early enough that the error on the list of supplies in the Hogwarts letter still has the erroneous second wand listed. :P)
