World Book Day Meme

What ten books can't you live without ? For its 10th anniversary, World Book Day in Britain wants to find out which ten books you cannot live without. And they're running a competition to find out - which I'm not desperate to enter, but I thought it would be interesting find out what everyone would choose. World Book Day are gathering the data for a definitive top ten to be published on World Book Day - March 1st, and you will be able to find these books, complete with extracts exclusively on Lovereading.co.uk.

Choosing just ten is pretty difficult, but here's my top ten - in strictly alphabetical order:

King of Shadows - Susan Cooper
The Owl Service - Alan Garner
Fire and Hemlock - Diana Wynne Jones
The House in Norham Gardens - Penelope Lively
Sabriel - Garth Nix
A Hat Full of Sky - Terry Pratchett
His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J K Rowling
Ptolemy's Gate - Jonathan Stroud
The Lord of the Rings - J R R Tolkien
