* 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]]

** Speaking of throwing books, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' also allows you to do just that, literally, via the Ninja class (the Mediator/Orator class has books for weapons, [[BrownNote though they read from it to attack]] so they don't count), which has the ability to throw almost any weapon in the game. Thrown weapons always do damage based on the weapon's attack power, even when (as is the case with books, as their attack power [[BrownNote isn't based on physically attacking]]) that doesn't make any logical sense.

* In a strange way, this is how FelixTheCat saved the day in [[The TheMovie]] [[WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie Movie]], by throwing an ancient book at the Duke of Zil's Master Cylinder, resulting in the destruction of the Duke's entire army. Poindexter surmised that the book had an adverse effect on the Master Cylinder's circuitry and the rest of the army went down with it because it was [[KeystoneArmy the source of their power]]. Felix believe that it was the power of good in the book that did the job.
