What if This Very Wiki was printed!? o.O ... On second thought, Archive Panic is the right trope. Sorry.

What's the longest book? I can't find it here.

Okay, looking at the page image: When you get to the point where your book is taller than it is wide, doesn't it become so impractical to use that you switch to volumes like every other paper encyclopedia?

well, the "paper Wikipedia" was more of a proof-of-concept gimmick than a real book meant for daily use

I remember using a copy of the Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature (in the 80s) that looked similar to the book in the picture, except that the library kept it mounted in a dedicated stand.

I think manga examples like Hajime no Ippo and Kochikame should be removed. This isn't about long-runners but at single volumes that clock in at over 500 pages.

Yes, it doesn't make any sense since the individual volumes are only around 200 pages long. Hajime no Ippo and Kochikame already have entries on the Long Runner page. The other manga entries are about omnibus editions and so are fine. I'll go ahead and remove them.

Couldn't decide where to put this on the main page, so I'm putting it here: the Longest Stories C2 has identified 52 stories on FanFiction.Net with more than 1,000,000 words. Of those, 7 have over 2,000,000, and one, The Subspace Emissary's Worlds Conquest, has broken 3,000,000. (Major thanks to ncfan for her help!)

Would it be a good idea to separate out the in-story examples from the actual works? I'd do it, but I don't want to make more work for someone else if it's a bad idea.

The Urantia Book is 2,097 pages long and could be considered a religious text. I can't find it in this article.
