You read the book. It's a text narrative of the Great Maze. You get almost to the end when suddenly the book flips right back to the start and you have start reading again from the beginning.

You read the book. It describes the nature of player choice and player psychology in creating compelling games, with special reference to character customization. Someone has added the note "except for Advanced Thrown Weapons, which must be mandatory" to almost every page.

You read the book. It is a treatise on the different points of view on subjective perception of an object. You're not sure you understand what it's about. Maybe you should read it again.

You read the book. It's a collection of bad limericks that attempt to break the fourth wall.

You read the book. It is a gory comedy about two angels trying to get back into heaven. Some of the one-liners are real zingers.

You read the book. It is little more than the bound version of a doctorate thesis about injuries sustained while using vacuum cleaners outside their intended purpose.

You read the book. It's a trade paperback of a popular cartoon character. Someone has scribbled a lot of phone numbers in the book. Maybe you should try calling some of them.

You read the book. It's a story of a lovely lady who was bringing up three very lovely girls, and a man named Brady who was busy with three boys of his own. You think it would make a great TV show.

You read the book. It's a tale of a fateful trip that started from a tropic port aboard a tiny ship. You think it would make a great TV show.

You read the book. You soon gave it 2 stars on Amazon because its story was too linear.

Unholy Book.

You read the book. It's an illustrated children's book about two monsters in search of a name. The ending leaves you with hollow feelings of isolation.

Repth, mind sharing me the name of that book, if it is an actual story?

Mundane:

- You read the book. It's the story of a man, a stutterer, who becomes a monk. The ending is viscerally beautiful.

- You read the book. The author delivers an optimistic view of the future, and the end of conflict, due to economic prosperity.

- You read the book. It details the author reluctantly attacking his earlier work, with a great deal of pathos.

- You read the book. A collection of people have gathered at a funeral, only for one of the attendees to proclaim it a murder. She turns up dead next.

- You read the book. It's one volume of an eight-part murder mystery, with fantastic elements and cleverly interwoven plot-lines.

- You read the the book. The author professes a love of cooking, and details several recipes. You find yourself smiling and hungry, before the end.

- You read the book. It contains an atlas of places that never were... Allegedly. You pause at the mention of Laurentia.

- You read the book. The thoughts and diary-entries of an émigré baron, once famous, now all-but unknown. A deep melancholy sets over you.

- You read the book. A raucous account by an older woman of her continuing misadventures. It is uproariously funny, and you laugh to the point of tears.

- You read the book. It is a guide to working as a governess in Laurentia. The entire back half of the book is missing!

- You read the book. An ugly political screed, full of spelling errors. Halfway through, the author starts talking about their awful home situation.

- You read the book. It is an anthology containing numerous ancient poems, from equally ancient cultures. It instills in you a love of the classical world.

- You read the book. Though the cover portrays aliens, it turns out to be a sensibly-written guide to navigating by the stars; useful for sailors.

- You read the book. A scandal-ridden history of the rise and fall of a famous 20th-century ballerina. Someone has left ticket stubs for the Bolshoi in the back.

- You read the book. The story of an older man, wrestling with his mortality. The beginning is fascinating, but the original author died - leaving the rest shoddily ghost-written.

- You read the book. It's a collection of black humour, or is supposed to be. The author insists on repeating the same four or five stereotypes while defending his stand-up routine.

- You read the book. A guide on maintaining survival gear, proclaiming itself an essential part of your bug-out bag! Despite the cheese, it has several good points for budding survivalists.

- You read the book. Sheet music once owned by a concert pianist, largely forgotten by time. Coffee stains and age line the original compositions.

- You read the book. The author claims her herbal guide will help the reader live forever. A note by the publisher at the end off-handedly mentions an on-going lawsuit.

- You read the book. A complicated story about a fading household and the loves of those within. The cover is a recreation of a beautiful woodcut.

- You read the book. It is the story of a young man who kills another man, and does not know why. The words hang over you like a haze.

Divine:

- You read the book. It is wordless, comprised of multiple pastel illustrations that evoke a sense of wonder and belonging.

- You read the book. It's a list of tracks to be burned on a cassette tape. Someone has written on the back, I already did.

- You read the book. The tales of a woman, a philosopher, and a general who all met their fate in fire... Though the book assures you that their lives and joys did not end, there.

- You read the book. Despite the plain cover, it contains a series of paeans to the reader, encouraging them in subtle ways. The author is unlisted.

- You read the book. It is a list of names, left unforgotten.

- You read the book. A beautiful collection of murals from the mortal world, with excitable notes in angelic script. Their enthusiasm is contagious.

- You read the book. The dry recounting of a military campaign, the author praises the virtues of the common soldier... While subtly calling for world-wide peace.

- You read the book. It is the minutes of a small club that met weekly, in a large city, devoted to the city's livelihood. They leave you with a renewed sense of purpose.

- You read the book. At first glance, it seems to be a fantasy novel, but it eventually turns into a compelling plea to make the world better than it is.

- You read the book. Each page emits a gentle luminescence, and the text describes a beloved childhood home. You are filled with an oddly comforting nostalgia.

- You read the book. It is a loan notice, telling the recipient that their loan has been forgiven in full, and wishing them the best of luck with their business.

- You read the book. A popular true-crime novel, the author uncovers the innocence of a young man. The publisher notes the author moved on to a career in public defence.

- You read the book. A powerful set of mournful poems that nevertheless fill you with the desire to do good, and to be better than you are.

- You read the book. The book playfully encourages the reader to love themselves, and others. Though baudily written, the advice given is genuine.

- You read the book. The journal of a young girl, depicting her desire to journey to the stars, after watching a famous miniseries. The last entry is from her older self, having found a career in science.

- You read the book. It is poorly-written, trite, and confusing. But at the end is a note from the author's brother, encouraging the author to never give up.

Unholy

- You read the book. It is a guide to working as a governess in Laurentia. The latter half of the book devolves into unreadable, spidery script.

- You read the book. Stored on several floppy diskettes, it is little more than a series of lat-long coordinates.

- You read the book. The book contains numerous appeals to ignorance and distrust of intelligence, combined with cloying assurances that the reader is smart, beautiful, and deserving.

- You read the book. A series of family photos. In every photo, the parents have their fingers against the youngest daughters' shoulders.

- You read the book. Multiple screenshots taken from a popular online game, put through a glassy filter, none of which frighten. A publisher's note reveals that the author contacted them no less than seventy times, demanding publication.

- You read the book. It is woven from a thin white thread that clings to the fingers, and smells of decaying wildflowers. Each page is hauntingly beautiful.

- You read the book. A logbook from the groundskeeper of a certain Laurentian aristocrat. The logbook lovingly details the aristocrat's increasing infirmity and physical decay.

- You read the book. The script for a reality television pilot, depicting horrific atrocities and cruelties. The script has a notice of rejection, with the following text: Not enough.

- You read the book. Each page is a collection of odd, but seemingly harmless theories. The last dovetails into a list of individuals, and somewhat mildewed photographs.

- You read the book. Raunchy photographs of middle-aged men, in a dark room. It seems comical, until you note that every man has the exact same expression, and the same empty eyes.

- You read the book. A cute, somewhat saccharine story about a beloved pet... Until the end, where it becomes a line-by-line depiction of the pet's owner, clinical and oddly detached.

- You read the book. The report of a coroner, regarding incidents at a famous natural park. It has been badly burnt, and you have to re-assemble it by hand.

- You read the book. Glamorous stills from a photo-shoot. There is nothing unusual about the models, or any of the photographs.

- You read the book. A depiction of angels, how to invoke them, and invite them into your life. The book was a best-seller during the '90's.

- You read the book. The transcript of an audio-interview with a cannibal, who expresses disbelief and refusal to acknowledge he did anything wrong. A post-script reveals his status as a local celebrity.

- You read the book. It endlessly harps on about the ugliness of society, the ugliness of the reader, and the ugliness of politics, while promising the reader that nothing can be done.

- You read the book. A Sunday comics section, from a local newspaper. The colours seem faded and the illustrations slightly grainy, with the subject of each comic being powerlessness.

- You read the book. The ravings of a man who claims he was attacked by plague-ridden tentacles. A strange mold clings to the latter pages. You brush it off, subconsciously.

- You read the book. It is the fifth volume of a popular self-help series. The author reassures you that she believes in you. The middle of the book contains a series of hyperlinks that lead to notice of domain seizure.

- You read the book. The history of a sports team, written as a feel-good story. At the end, somebody has lodged a single photograph of the team... But you cannot say who the person in the upper-left is.

You read the book. It doesn't take long; every single page reads, "This page unintentionally left blank."
