** The {{MMORPG}} has a vast variety of book-type weapons for priests and sages. They're more effective (And amusing) for direct combat then rods and staves, but tend to be less effective at boosting spell damage.

** The {{MMORPG}} has a vast variety of book-type weapons for priests and sages. They're more effective (And amusing) for direct combat then rods and staves, but tend to be less effective at boosting spell damage.

* In the beginning of the final book of the ''Literature/CodexAlera'', the [[WolfMan Canim Warmaster Varg]] cuts off a ritual-master's attempts to kill him with BloodMagic by hitting him in the throat with a thrown copy of Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar's ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext Commentarii de Bello Gallico]]''.

* [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Hayate]] whacks her enemies with her tome in ''MagicalBattleArena''... which is weird since she has a perfectly serviceable [[SimpleStaff staff]] with pointy bits on it. Well it ''is'' a TomeOfEldritchLore.
