Book within a book

Metafictional stories in which another book takes place inside of the story you are reading. If you add books, please try to stay on topic and don't do tangents like "the whole book is in journal entries" or "video games are kind of like stories". Thanks!


*Please note, journal entries and plays will not be counted. I'm looking at you Harry Potter fans.
