Once again it is up to me to recommend some Vladimir Nabokov, which I do gladly.
Most highly recommended for those unfamilar are Lolita and Pale Fire. For prose style, there is Vlad and there is everyone else.
If those don't make you sit up and take notice, check your eyes and your pulse. Still no? Then void help you.

Too many to mention. Something that I've read many times and still come back to is The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Does my collection of 'Bloom County' books count?

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Me too (minus the "Works of"). Very cozy and atmospheric writing, especially the openings of the stories.

Only if I can count my Calvin and Hobbes.

I really enjoyed The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.

And speaking of bibles has anyone read The Boomer Bible by RF Laird?
