Well, naming the five worst reads is fairly easy because I really hated
every page of Nietzsche I slogged through, And Stirner was awful too. 
Surprisingly, I hated Schopenhauers Philosophy even though I loved his
Studies in Pessimism. So here are my bottom five:

Nietzsche  Thus Spake Zarathustra   009.1
Nietzsche  Beyond Good and Evil     020.1
Stirner   Ego & His Own                  049.1
Nietzsche  Geneology of Morals       062.1
Schopenhauer Philosophy                 052.2

Now the top five are harder to identify because I loved so many of them.
Just glancing over the list here's five that I loved so much I read again
at least one other time:

Carroll   Alice In Wonderland       079.1
Daudet    Sapho                           085.1
Flaubert  Madame Bovary            028.1
Hudson    Green Mansions            089.1
Joyce     Prtrt of Artist as Y M      145.1

But it's unfair to not mention Lawrence and  DeMaupassant and so many
others who I really loved.  I used a "Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor" rating
system in my records. Of the 175 MLs I have in my list, 61 are rated
excellent, 70 are rated good, 32 are rated fair and only 18 are rated
