There are strict rules about what non-military texts you can posses during boot camp. They only allow one book, and it must be a holy book from your religion. As you’d expect from this rule, there were a few Bibles, a Koran, and even a Book of Mormon in various wall-lockers in my company. Most people just didn’t have a book at all.
I, however, brought my copy of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
My book was incredibly popular, and people kept talking about it during the few short breaks you get during the typical boot camp day.
The description he provides of explaining the book to his Drill Sergeant is hilarious. Includes the line: "Drill Sergeant: “Are you fucking with me? Are you fucking with me at 0600, Private Griffith? Before I even get some goddamned breakfast?”"
