You read the book. It is a detailed map of the various planes and how they connect. In the place of the plane describing Kaleidescopia, you find a letter of resignation.

You read the book. It is a how-to guide for magic users with various ludicrously complex rituals. It takes you a while to realize it is not a parody.

You read the book. It is a story of a man who is released from prison, only for his wife to die in a car crash. It quickly gets very strange.

You read the book. It is a mail order catalogue that contains many bizarre and completely unnecessary products. You find it oddly amusing.

You read the book. It is a collection of flavour text for the wiki of an on-line game. For some reason most of it centers around Bruce Lee.

You read the book and wish you hadn't; you vow never to read anything with the word "Shoppaholic" on the cover ever again!

You read the book and are instantly covered in a spray of metallic confetti. It is a book about things that seem fun but are actually very annoying. You take 2 damage.


You read the book and are thrilled to discover the book transforms into a set of modern inspired paper clothing. Sadly, as soon as you put it on its all melts off of you because of the humidity in the air.

You read the book and can not help from crying on the pages as you go. Your tears transform the words into colorful pictures of popular candy from the 1970s.

You read the book and discover the thousands of uses for the toxic Red Dye#40 in everyday life. The joy the author seems to have in his subject matter and style is disturbing.

You read the book and discover that it is actually a book on tape, but there is nothing to play it on.

You read the book and are instantly covered in a swarm of dust mites the moment you open it. The cover indicates it is a book about Victorian bedding and bedroom styles.

You read the book and instantly wet your pants. You are too embarrassed to share the content.

You read the book and discover a magical new island world where everything seems spectacular and the happy people are prosperous. Sadly, near the end, the King's ugly, selfish wife returns and kills everything that made it special, throwing the island world into a tragic demise.

You read the book and instantly feel a very strong need to repent your sins. However the sins listed are all things that you recognise as good and helpful to society. You are left feeling very passionate and confused.

You read the book and start to feel very warm. Half-way through reading you admit to yourself that you are reading erotica. After you are content that no one is watching you, you take full advantage of your new-found favorite book of all times.

You read the book. It is a full account of prehistoric pottery and common graphical symbols used at that time. It is a very long book and it puts you to sleep.

You read the book, or try to. It has been carved out to make a box but looks like a book from the outside. It smells like weed.

You read the book. It is an instruction manual for making a pocket-sized Superconducting Super Collider. The first thing it recommends is to buy the proper liability insurance.

You read the book. It is a huge, thick text that reminds you of religious doctrine. All of the times you expect to see 'G0d' written, it says 'Bob'. You feel very thankful to Bob by the end and choose to pray to him for the rest of your existence.

You read the book. It claims to contain the meaning of life. But when you turn to the last page you find it strangely empty.

You read the book. It feels like a waste of time.

You read the book. In it are diagrams of flying machines, none of which have ever been built.

You read the book. You re-read the book. It's written in a language you do not know. You feel disturbed that you didn't realize it sooner.

I just read this unholy book:

Quote:
- You read the book. Its a computer manual instructing demons in the creation of viruses and worms with which to afflict the computers of mortals. From the texture it would appear the pages of this book are made of human stomach lining.


I misread it, leading to this suggestion:

- You read the book. Its a manual instructing demons in the creation of viruses and worms with which to afflict the stomachs of mortals. From the texture it would appear the pages of this book are made of human stomach lining. You drop the book in fear and quickly wash your hands.

You read the book. It is a choose your own adventure book. All the paths loop around to previous decisions. The only way to find the real ending is by flipping through randomly.

You read the book. It is a poorly-drawn graphic novel about four children playing an elaborate video game.

You read the book. It's an action-thriller detailing the events of a fourteen-year-old British spy.

You read the book. It's a children's picture book about a certain hungry caterpillar.

You read the book. It's an autobiography of a world leader laced with his own political ideology. The guy on the cover has a funny mustache.

You read the book. It contains many chapters detailing a broken young man eventually coming to terms with his frustrations with the help of an absent "friend." The twist is near the end.

You read the book. It's a space opera taking place just after the earth was destroyed. It ends with a new planet being formed and humanity naming it "Bob."



(bonus points to whomever can guess 'em all!)

I'd put money on Alex Rider.

Nope. I'm pretty sure there's a specific book that's referring to, Inside UFO 54-40
Link here, scroll to the end. Or read the whole thing, it's interesting.

Anyways, just read tek's message on the first post. I'll just stick to the book texts then.

Also, you two got most of 'em. And Logan is correct in the last one.

You read the book. It is an adventure following an asthmatic kid as he attempts to overthrow the universal order as he follows his companion's will. Strangely, the villains pertain to individual days of the week.

You read the book. It is a spy novel dealing with some controversial issues, but the many twists manage to keep you engaged nonetheless. Very few of the characters stay alive from chapter to chapter.

You read the book. It follows a young boy finding companionship with his two dogs. The ending is heartbreaking.

You read the book. It details the events of many students from different facets of life being sent to a remote island to fight to the death. It does not have a bird on the cover.

You read the book. It is a collection of short stories laced together through a rather peculiar tattooed framing device.

You read the book. It has a famous actor on the cover, but no where in the book did you find the famous actor.
