Varian's Intermediate Microeconomics is a fantastic introduction to microeconomic theory. Particularly in the early phase of my first-year graduate economics course work, I often turned to it to gain intuition. It stands the test of time as a great reference.

One of the few textbooks I have read almost cover-to-cover. Complete with rather horrific economic jokes (like hitfrogs targeting a scorpion's family). Unfortunately, I have to go over the entire thing again, especially the formulae.
I have left this book marked as "currently reading" for a long time, mainly because I frequently came back to it, in order to re-read some parts. Now, I have read the entire book at least once, some chapters twice, a few even more than that, but I'm now planing on coming back again to this, so I'm changing the shelve to "read".
