- Don Quixote by Cervantes: I am lost, so what's better than the master dreamer guiding my dream.
- Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy the Complete Edition by Douglas Adams: I need to laugh and this will make me laugh in my dire straits.
- The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson. I want to think that this is all prearranged and that there were people involved with my disappearance.
- The Dangereous Book For Boys by Hal Iggulden I could send code. I could tie knots. I could learn navajoh code talk. There is plenty of stuff in that book that would be worth knowing.
- The Pilgrim's Progress by Paul Bunyan I think this is my favorite all time book.
