1, LotR, especially Book V. That's what I can re-read over and over.
2. War and Peace. I read it straight through in about 4 days, during Christmas break my senior year in high school. I ate, slept, and read.
3. Les Miserables, a few years later. Gripped. Incredible how the musical could capture so much of the magic of that book.
Beyond that, there are only authors:
4. Anything by Jane Austin.
5. About 2/3 of the books by Dick Francis. Inventive, exciting, entertaining. But he did write a few clangers.
Anne McCaffrey is great, but her books are one-time reads. Several authors in that category.
