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.

Didya look?

Heh.  I am filling in for Janet today. Late, but hey. It’s still daylight here on the Left Coast.

In the comments, please, list your favorite historical romances.  Up to, say, three. The ones where, if you were to be thrown into a dungeon (assume a source of light) you would not mind reading over and over in between taking breaks to tunnel your way out.

I would like to know if I’ve missed any great ones.

Thank you. I will tally the results later next week.
