Not sure if these are what you're looking for but I consider them game books.
Joe Dever's Lone Wolf
Sorcery!
Sorcery 2!
80 Days
Device 6
An Assassin in Orlandes

I guess this is not purely a gamebook game, but it does feel like one a lot: King of Dragon Pass. You get lots of text with story and then have to make important dwcisions about what just happened.

Great list, but personally, i would replace Assassin in Orlandes with Trial of the Clone

As Exact-Psience said this is a great list. I would add the Fighting Fantasy books to this of which there a a few now. The only problem with Lone Wolf and the Sorcery! books are that they are such good conversions , with totally new presentation they make the 'old' Fighting Fantasy books look a bit primitive now (i still love them though)!

King of dragons pass is complicated as shiz. It's not a bad game... But I personally just havnt had the time to get invested. If your into that though, definintly try it or read a review.
