"What book should i be reading in vegas? "

Are you looking for advice on the book or the location for the photo? Or both?

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. At Circus Circus of course!

One of the most obvious would be "Fear and Loathing" by Hunter Thompson in front of Circus Circus. But it may have been done before.

How about:

"Cry to Heaven" or "City of Falling Angels" on a gondola ride.

"Chocolat" or "Les Miserables" at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

"The Godfather" or "Breakfast at Tiffany's" on the roller coaster @ NYNY.

Shakespears' "Julius Caesar" while shopping at The Forums.

"Between a Rock and a Hard Place" at Red Rock or Valley of Fire.

Cousteau's "The Living Sea" while petting rays and sharks at the MB Reef.

"When the Mob Ran Vegas" in front of Bugsy Siegel's memorial at the Flamingo.

Have fun and good luck!

Something simple:

A Frommer's or Fodors Las Vegas Guidebook in front of the Las Vegas sign.

Hey there,

I am going to present this idea to our school for this summer. Are you elementary, middle, or high school? Hoover Dam and Valley of Fire comes to mind for an extreme reading photo opportunity.

"The Bible"

Actually the Book of Mormon would be more appropriate for Las Vegas.
