My favorite books on for hiking are:
103 Hikes103 Hikes
103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia

(by Mary and David Macaree - 3rd Edition and Jack Bryceland on the fifth edition)
I use the updated 3rd and updated fifth editions.  These books concentrate on hiking to the top of things, but there aren't many nice three hour hikes that are easier.
Best Hikes and Walks in Southern British Columbia (by Dawn Hanna)

A good book for finding doable hikes.  The index at the back has hikes sorted by length and season which quite helpful for planning, and this book isn't too proud to include hikes that are shorter than all day or have less vertical than the grouse grind.
Don't waste your time in the BC Coast Mountains (by Kathy and Craig Copeland)

A new book for me, I hope to use it this summer.  Many of the hikes listed are at least overnight hikes so this isn't necessarily your Sunday hiking book.
Nature Walks around Vancouver

by Jean Cousins
In winter, this book is good for finding a few hour long hikes before sunset.
