Gone With the Wind and Jane Eyre for me. I'll open them at any point and be sucked right in. Sometimes I re-read parts from memory.

Once in high school, I found a copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy someone had left behind in class. I started reading it and was riveted. A couple of class periods later, one of my friends got annoyed because I wouldn't put it down, so he took it and hurled it away. We were sitting on the top row of the bleachers in the gym and it landed on a tiny ledge up near the ceiling, where it may be to this very day. I had to go buy a copy.
