The Bookworm's Meme: What's on Your Bookshelf?

Every bookworm worthy of the title has his or her own collection of titles that are either falling apart from the spine with seriously dog-eared pages from being read over and over again or books that were bought because they were interesting at first but proved to be serious disappointments. Here's my list of favorite, most-used, and even utterly deplored tomes:
