Oh, someone mentioned "A Room With a View." That is my second-favorite book, right after Pride & Prejudice. I that book.
I didn't read this in class, but T.H. White's "The Once and Future King" is a classic and I enjoyed most of it. It's been a while, but I remember it as really funny through about the first half, and then a bit slow afterwards.
Also, just about anything by Mark Twain. We visited the house he lived in in Connecticut (I think) once and they had a lot of his writings that I'd never seen before. His "Diaries of Adam and Eve" had me in tears of laughter, so hard I couldn't even breathe enough to tell my family what was so funny.
