Book tattoos

Question of the day, stolen from marrog and inspired by this tattoo:

If you were going to have a tattoo of five books (or their titles) somewhere on your body, let's say somewhere where it will be seen from time to time, what five books would you get?

It might be your favourite books, or ones that have changed your life, or that your favourite quotes come from, or that you think will impress people, or all of the above.

My five would be:

The Homeward Bounders - Diana Wynne Jones
Good Omens - Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
Babel Tower - AS Byatt
The Epic of Gilgamesh
Oxford English Dictionary

But it made me flail a bit to have to choose. I have another four or five bubbling under, and I'm particularly not sure about putting Gilgamesh in instead of Sayers' Gaudy Night.

..I kind of want a bookshelf tattooed across my shoulders now. With spaces so I can add things.
