Books To Get You Out of a Dungeon

Here’s the list of books that people would take to the dungeon with them to read in between bouts of tunneling out.  In bold and purple means I have read it. They are in the order they appeared in the comments. A number in parenthesis is the number of people who mentioned the book.
