* An essay by Evan Connell mentions that when Thomas Huxley, while defending CharlesDarwin's theory, responded to a nasty remark with a magnificent comeback[[note]]The other fellow asked if Huxley were descended from an ape on his grandfather's or his grandmother's side. Huxley replied, in effect, "I'd rather be descended from an ape than from you."[[/note]], one of the onlookers, "trembling with honorable Christian rage, picked up a Bible and was just prevented from throwing it at Huxley."

* A popular clip for ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' fanvids is Akane bashing Ranma with her bookbag. Hell, he even brings it up at one point.
-->'''Ranma:''' Akane, do you always gotta be throwin' the book at guys ya don't like, huh?!\\
'''Akane:''' No, only at you!

* A popular clip for ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' fanvids is In an anime-only scene of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Ranma hangs upside-down outside Akane's window to check up on her. Despondent, Akane bashing throws a couple books at her --which Ranma dodges deftly-- but then hefts a much larger one that smacks spine-first on the redhead's face, stunning her long enough for Akane to follow up with her bookbag. Hell, he even brings it up at one point.

Before this, though, she mentions testing out different kinds of books and says though a ''[[TheBartimaeusTrilogy Bartimaeus Trilogy]]'' book can hurt, the ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince Half-Blood Prince]]'' can knock people out.

** While the Arcanists, Scholars, and Summoners of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' normally use their grimoires as {{Spell Book}}s, getting up close and initiating auto-attack will cause them to smack enemies upside the head with the book's spine.

* Not quite a book, but a legislator in Taiwan once attacked a colleague on the floor with a newspaper. Since it was in one of those wooden holders libraries use (a third cousin of the [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter shinai]] used in ''kendo''), it probably hurt. [[note]] The only thing unusual about this event is the choice of weapon. Fist fights are the norm. They are not considered unusual events in the Taiwanese legislature.[[/note]]
