    On pure enjoyment level, won't say anything bad about them:
    I love Watership Down and Dandelion Wine.

    Then you have books like As I Lay Dying, Pale Fire and Tropic Of Cancer and American Pastoral ect ect.
    Have you read Something Wicked Comes this Way? I read recently and its easily My fav Bradbury and just missed out in this thread.

    It's always a tie between Logan's Run by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson or Mountain Man by Vardis Fisher.

    I've been wanting to read that, but it's out of print, and kind of pricey.

    It's on abebooks.com for $14 used including shipping...albris have a few copies for under $20 as well. If it was available digitally, I'd buy that too.

    It's hard to name one in particular, but I constantly re-read The Sherlock Holmes series and Dracula (Highly recommend the annotated versions by Les Klingler, they are a Joy!)

    While all my friends were going nuts over Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, I was still living in 1895. :)

    My favorite poetry book is Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada by Pablo Neruda.

    "It was a pleasure to burn." Easily my second favorite of all time. Had to buy a new copy recently, cause the old one's so worn and annotated it's unreadable. =0

    Favorite book of all time? Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, no doubt. First read it when I was in elementary school, and every year or so I read it again. The Harry Potter series (especially Goblet of Fire) are up there, along with anything by Shelley (Percy, not Mary), Austen, and Doyle.

    It's short, but Of Mice and Men has been a favourite of mine since I was young. In addition that, Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Dracula by Bram Stoker and because of that one, Anno Dracula by Kim Newman.
