I'm a newbie and have just dropped a quick introduction into the newbies thread.
I find I'm much more likely to cry at a book than a movie- it's a much more personal experience and given the time usually involved I'm much more invested in the characters by the end of a book compared to the end of the movie.
So, off the top of my head...
* The Amber Spyglass- I think I wept through the last fifty pages. I also remember reading them ever more slowly as I desperately didn't want it to end.
* Flowers for Algernon- what a wonderful, thoughtful book about how society ostracizes both ends of the bell curve.
* The Old Man and the Sea
* Goodbye, Best Friend by Cherie Bennett- has anyone else ever heard of this?! It's a cheesy children's book about a young girl with cystic fibrosis and it used to make me bawl.
Non fiction, definitely Codependent No More by Melody Beattie, cried through the whole freaking book...fiction, Lover Eternal by J. R. Ward, best cry ever 2nd best cry would be Deathly Hallows...
Tuesday's with Morrie by Mitch Albom was one that made me tear up a few times while reading.
Another is called Oceans Apart by Karen Kingsbury. Both were such heart warming stories and both were very hard to put down.

Got to admit that I very nearly cried at the end of "Tale of Two Cities". Fantastic book, probably my favourite Dickens.
