Yes, Ghost, yes you do +10 exp.

A few more that I can come up with off the top of my head:

You read the book. It is a simply written comical and romantic adventure book. The cast of characters ranges from lumbering giants to skilled swordsmen to a mysterious man dressed in black. It ends with a princess together with her true love.

You read the book. It a two-volume book that details the events of an Englishman being stranded in Japan during the age of exploration. While most of his crew dies or is otherwise unable to change to the new culture, the main character adapts and becomes the right-hand man of a prominent dynastic family.

You read the book. It is an analysis of the fall of different, seemingly well-off ancient societies, as well as the reasons behind them.

"It is a classic tale of a man who believes in his dreams and ultimately winds up fighting windmills."

Don't know if I should post this here or typo. The and should be a but.

Though maybe it was his dream to fight windmills. Laughing

Don Quixote. It's because he believes in his chivalric ideals that he charges at windmills, so it's fine the way it is.

You read the book. It's the first part of a convoluted series of political novels, set on a desert planet. You can't help but feel that the entire story is an allegorical representation of long-past events.

You read the book. It follows a Russian seer and his owl companion on their investigations upon vampires, sorcerers, and other transcendent human beings.

You read the book. Someone appears to have taken a black marker and rubbed over most of the text, leaving scattered letters across the pages that spell out insane drivel and profanities.

You read the book. It appears to be a history of Great Britain, as written by the son-in-law of a Roman general.

You read the book. It is the novelization of a popular children's television program, which in turn is based off of an interactive game for a popular home console.

You read the book. It is an epic poem in a long dead language; its subject matter is Epicurean philosophy, with particular attention to atomic theory.

You read the book. It seems to be the printed out archives of an internet forum. You disgustedly throw the book away and feel dumber for having read it.

You read the book. It is a collection of pulp comics about demons and angels fighting each other for control of the universe. A page depicting Angels attacking a bar catches your eye.

Here's a few:

UNHOLY

You read the book. It is a demonic guide to chess. Most of the strategies involve killing your opponent.

You read the book. It is a collection of newspaper clippings about murders. Although most of the crimes were allegedly solved, they all seem eerily similar.

You read the book. As you read it, the letters turn to lice, and crawl off the pages and onto your body.

You read the book. It is a pamphlet, ostensibly warning teens about the dangers of tobacco use, but it really makes you crave a cigarette.

HOLY

You read the book. It is a guide to moral reasoning, complete with complex example problems.

You read the book. It is a guide for angels tasked with comforting virtuous mortals facing death.

You read the book. It is a collection of devotional poems, thanking the creators for all the beauty in the world. They're mostly about flowers.

You read the book. It's a cautionary tale about an angel who used blood ice to heal his wounds. He becomes fiercely addicted and falls from grace.

You read the book. It's a guide to Stygian Wildlife. Apparently a few marsupial species have the unfortunate tendency to violently explode when provoked. What brought about that evolutionary change?

Before this gets used, let's preempt the Typos thread and eliminate the 'the'. Because it's just too awesome *not* to make it into a book. Very Happy

While I'm suggesting references to factions I'm in...

You read the book. It is a pulp novel about a large group of pirates who worship a crab god, live in a bakery, and are led by a rabbit. Wait...What?

You read the book. It is about a group of demonic superheroes led by an evil unicorn. You wouldn't call anything they do heroic by any sense of the word.

You read the book. It is the misadventures of an eccentric group, among them are a chronically dead cat, a talking piece of cheese, and a puppy. This would probably make more sense on drugs.

You read the book. It's about a police department called to bring order to a demon-filled hellscape. They are all virtuous and good. Except when they're not.

You read the book. It's about a group of gentlemen who enjoy tea and biscuits, making social calls upon their neighbors and talking. As you read, you realize that they're actually all hellspawn.

You read the book. It appears to be a twisted children's tale about a garage-full of animate automobiles, though the subject matter is anything but family friendly.
