I couldn't find a real picture with my old setup, but I've used 2 large C++ books, the Bjarne Stroustrup "bible" and one other that had 1000+ pages.

What books did you used? It's ok, you can come clean now, it will be our little secret.

At work, I use the history of the metal umlaut since it's fairly thick and fun. I got it from an old Humble Bundle.

Some old 100+ page work catalogs and a few books about the history of the company I work for.

History books? Sounds like an old company :)) Longer the history, taller the display.

We used to use old copies of the yellow pages. As they were quite thick books usually only one was needed to get the desired height.
