All except War and Peace... well not every book in the two series that I mentioned, but some of them. I had to read a lot when I worked in the children's department at the library... :(

The Little House books-I grew up on those books and the TV series and I remember my mother reading them to me when I was little.
Anything and everything Nancy Drew-I have been reading those since I learned how to read.
Anything and everything L.M. Montgomery-An absolutely fantastic writer.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe-I vaguely recall my mother telling me about the BBC movie one night it was on TV and watching it. Plus, I absolutely love the story.

I like reading shorter books more than longer (though I find longer more rewarding), so I'll have to say the Goosebumps (youth) series and the Fear Streat (young adult) series both by R L Stine.

My fave novels are Dreamcatcher, Desperation, The Regulators, The Shining, and The Dark Half by Stephen King, and Jurrasic Park, Timeline, Lost World, and Congo by Michael Crichton.
