Let's play a recommendation game!

Okay, here is the game Pretend that you are a big shmancy celebrity like Oprah, and some charity or whatever recruits you to donate a raffle prize. You decide that you will donate an iPod Touch/Kindle/eBookwise/Device of Your Choosing---pre-loaded with up to 25 great books hand-picked by you. Assume you have carte blanche and every title you might want is available to you. What are the books you would load onto that baby?

My list, in no particular order...

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Wicked by Gregory MacGuire
Three Plums in One by Janet Evanovich
The Chrysalids by John Wyndham
1984 by George Orwell
Overclocked by Corey Doctorow
Naked in Death by J.D. Robb aka Nora Roberts
City at World's End by Edmond Hamilton
Story of my Life by Helen Keller
Complete Works of Lewis Carroll
Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi
The Mouse in the Mountain by Norbert Davis
The Golden Treasury edited by Francis Palgrave
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
Not Wanted on the Voyage by Timothy Findley
Microserfs by Douglas Coupland
Harry Potter, Book 1 by JK Rowling
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeliene L'Engle
The Complete Shakespeare by William Shakespeare

So, some mystery, some literary fiction and a few pieces of light sci-fi. Didn't find e-versions for Microserfs or Not Wanted on the Voyage, and would dearly love to! Everything else I think is findable.
