It my neck of the woods it is the fifteenth, and you know what that means, I post the offical list for the books that bloggers cannot live without! I chose only books that received more than two votes, but I will post the books that recieved two votes and one vote in the coming days. I sort of have a plan.

This was really fun. My thanks to EVERYONE that joined in. What do you think of the list? Are there surprises? Are there books that should be there and are not? Do you think it is a good representation?
So, to show my appreciation, I got someone to choose a number between one and 48 (that's how many lists I received), and the winner is going to get to pick one of the books on the list of 28 that they would like to read. If you do not want to read any of them, you can pick a new number. The only catch is that you have to wait until May to receive your book because I am in exam-land, and cannot be expected to think coherently until then.
Anyways, the winner is number three:
Stephanie from Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-holic. Just let me know which book you want and I will ship it to you when I get the chance!
**** This list has been updated slightly because I forgot a list. My apologies to Caelum-Amo from Identity. I meant to save your blog for later, but I forgot to go back to it!
