How bout starting with the first one in the series...they all kinda have a progression...start with Peril At Delphi...some of my favorates are Dinosaur Eggs and Hollow Earth. But I still reccomend reading in order...I ended up reading all of them 2 times in like a month because the first time I didn't read them in order.
My favorite had to be Indiana Jones and the Interior World. However, in order for it to have full impact you have to read Peril at Delphi, Dance of the Giants, Seven Viels, Genesis Deluge, and Unicorn's Legacy first. Hey, they're all good anyway!

Um... no. I mean Interior World, the last to be written by Rob MacGregor. Of course maybe you were being saracstic, and were suggestion Hollow Earth is better. If so, then I cannot argue, I haven't read Hollow Earth yet.
EDIT: Oh! And I got my collection at Disneyland, CA.
Might be a distance to go just to get them, though.

Just finished Delphi through Veils. I'm into Deluge right now. Definitely start with Peril of Delphi, because it explains how Indy gets hooked on archeology right out of college.
At this point I think MacGregor has done a nice job capturing the feel of the films, from the detailed action, to the binds Indy finds himself in, to the often supernatural aspects of his archeology lifestyle. I also like how MacG weaves ongoing storylines through the different novels.
This might be a minor spoiler, so be careful reading on, but, I wasn't too upset about the whole Deidre issue. In my humble opinion, I think it lends insight to the slight callousness Indy displays toward women in the films. From what I can see, love is never really on his mind in the trilogy and (if I may be so bold as to mix the canon film Indy with the literary Indy) I think Deidre might have had something to do with that.
Unicorn's Legacy and Philosopher's Stone are grate books and could have been made in to movies I think.
The White Witch is one of the Indy books most fans think suck WHY dont ask me its one of my favorites. Hollow Earth hade a killer ending and its fast paste just like an old pulp book. As for Sky Pirates well that one I got to say sucked Gale Parker is in it and shes cool.
