Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

A Book is collection of words and/or images printed on sheets of paper bound together along one edge with covers on the front and back. Books can contain any kind of information, literature, both fact and fiction and pictorial in the form of diagrams, artwork or comic strips. More recently some books have done away with paper all together and been published electronically.

In universe

Ancient Bajorans treated their printed works in way that made them extremely long lasting, as a result in the 24th century Bajoran books thousands of years old could be found in better condition than stone tablets just hundreds of years old. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

With the growth of PADDs and more integrated computer systems, books in the traditional form were quite uncommon in the days of the Federation. Fact and fiction prose publications did still occur commonly in electronic forms though and it was not unheard of for individuals to keep a more traditionally created version of a particular prized work, for instance, Captain Jean-Luc Picard kept a copy of the complete works of William Shakespeare. (TNG episode: "Hide and Q")

In the 24th century the Tigans had not officially had a written history for centuries, instead keeping all data on the Tigan central computer. However this was not the case, a large library of books did exist but was hidden from public knowledge so that politicians might alter data in the central computer with no physical reference for the Tigans to be any the wiser. (TNG comic: "History Lesson")

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Darth Wyyrlok studies a book in search of a cure for Darth Krayt's affliction.
Kenobi: "Do know if this thing will burn properly?"
Shopkeeper: "Beats me what it's good for, Ben. But it's yours for a credit."
Obi-Wan Kenobi and an Anchorhead shopkeeper, regarding a book

A book was an ancient physical means of data collection and preservation composed of sheets that were bound together with a protective cover. The sheets of a book, the individual sides of which were referred to as pages, could contain printed, written or illustrated information. In some cases, all of the pages within a book were intentionally left blank so that its owner could record his or her own information within it for professional or private reasons.

With the advent of more advanced means of collecting and preserving data, books eventually became obsolete. Books took up more space, were less portable and less accessible than electronic media. Over time, the number of sentient beings who used books or knew of their purpose declined considerably. However, the Chiss Ascendancy favored using books to archive data, rather than electronic means because Csilla's ice storms caused the loss of a significant amount of information that had been stored using the latter method.

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010
(Redirected to Books article)

From TibiaWiki

There are many books in Tibia. Their content range all from just a title, to clues for quests, to full length stories spawning more than just one book. You can usually find books in libraries in towns, but sometimes also near ruins of old houses, in dead trees or barrels out in the wilderness. These do often have a clue for a quest or how to find a place, item or key.

There is also a type of book that is magical. They are called spellbooks. The magic thing about them is that their content changes depending on who is reading it. The content always tells which spells the person reading it knows and some information about them.

Some types of empty books that you can write in can be bought in shops, others can only be found as loot from certain creatures. Note that some writeable items are not books (see Documents and Papers).
