I obviously love looking for things like this in movies, additionally so for anything book related. One of my favorite inclusion of a book as a prop comes from an episode of The X-Files television series. "The Goldberg Variations" episode opens with a novice poker player winning big against a Chicago mob boss. The player, Henry Weems, miraculously survives being thrown from the top of a 29-story building by the mobsters. FBI agents interview Weems in his apartment after the incident. As they scan across the Rube Goldberg-like contraptions Weems has created, his bookcase comes into view. A hardback copy of Michael Lewis' Liars Poker is clearly visible. The subject of the book has little relevance to the story other than the inclusion of "poker" in the title, but the fact that someone had to have thought about putting that book in the shot delights me.
I'm always interested in hearing about book inclusions like this from the screen, large or small, so if you have a favorite let me know!
