Is there an easy way to remove ceramic tile? Is it possible to salvage tiles for reuse?

Two ways to remove tile: club hammer & chisel or a power chisel/chipping hammer, cut the backing and pull the whole thing off with a large wrecking bar gutting to the studs or joists.

It is possible to salvage tile, but it's not done unless the tile is irreplaceable or of historic value. Many long tedious hours are involved. The same time invested in a second job would more than pay for new tile.
