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. I’ve read most of the authors on the list, but perhaps not the listed book. A couple of the books I started but did not finish. But a few are now to me.

I did preface my original submission that I assumed a fairy god mother would bring all of the Risky books. I really don’t think I could live without Janet’s humor!

Wow. I’m just thrilled my name made it on the list!!!

I agree with Kim. To have Risky books in the dungeon is essential!!
