I like series. Two that I've read a couple times are:

W.E.B. Griffin's "The Corps" series
Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" series

A third series that both my wife and I are reading is about a quaint country doctor named Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly, his young associate Dr. Barry Laverty and their housekeeper Mrs. Kinky Kincaid. The "Irish Country Doctor" series is above all, a comforting read.

If you're into end-of-the-world books, "Lucifer's Hammer" by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle will really get you thinking.

And finally, Lazarus Long, the oldest man in the world in Heinlein's "Time Enough For Love" is strange, familiar and very entertaining.
