I started with _Barrayar_ in serial form, Asimov's or something like that
that my roommate subscribed to, only missing one of the middle parts. Then
I sort of bounced around reading the earlier novels as I could find them. I
didn't settle in to reading them in order until _Mirror Dance_, and then
reading them as they came out.
I usually start people with _The Warrior's Apprentice_ simply because I
found the snowball effect of Miles's actions extremely amusing and easy to
get caught up in. But you just never know.
