Books for Someone in Basic Training?

My brother is in Army Basic Training at Fort Leonard Wood. He is unable to receive any care packages at this time, only Military-related books. I believe it's not limited to non-fiction. What are some entertaining and educational books for someone in Basic Training? Fiction and non-fiction welcome. Thanks!
