* In ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'', each shelf of real library books has only two pages of text (sometimes barely legible), unless one of them has been torn off and misplaced. Many shelves are fake and have nothing to read.

* ''VideoGame/TheNeverhood'' contains a ''twenty-seven-screen-long'' Bible of sorts. It amounts to about 25,000 words ... a novella in the real world, but a veritable decalogy of doorstoppers by video game standards.

In extremely rare cases, the in-game information is in fact as realistically long as you'd expect it to be. In those cases, it's known as the InGameNovel. A PamphletShelf might be FlavorText, when the information isn't necessary to understand the plot.

In those cases, it's known as the InGameNovel.InGameNovel; even an in-game novel, however, can overlap with this trope, since they're often unrealistically short two-or-three page affairs. A PamphletShelf might be FlavorText, when the information isn't necessary to understand the plot.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/DayZ'', which has about a hundred and fifty real books (public domain, naturally) that can be found in-game and read in their entirety. Some sort of sponsorship deal with a literary association was involved, apparently, but it's certainly a novel way to pass the time while you wait for your buddies to log in for a raid.

this. The in-game dialogue however, more than makes up for this (it tends to be long enough to annoy the PlayTheGameSkipTheStory crowd).

* ''VideoGame/TheNeverhood'' contains a ''twenty-seven-screen-long'' Bible of sorts. Although not quite enough to fill a book, it comes damn close.

* ''DVideoGame/ragonQuest'' has obeyed this trope from time immemorial; ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' may count as LampshadeHanging, as the hero opens every book to the middle (after flipping two pages) and never turns the page, so he's clearly only reading the page he needs to read out of the book.
