Though holoprograms based on literary works featuring Dixon Hill and Sherlock Holmes were seen early in TNG's run, the term "holonovel" was not coined until VOY episode "Cathexis", to describe the holoprogram in which Kathryn Janeway played the role of a Victorian governess.

A holographic novel (or holonovel for short) is an holographic program that has a story and plot and allows for participants to take the role of one of the characters.

Eric Zimmer liked to work on holonovels in his spare time. It was a hobby he started in high school with the help of his father, Henrik Zimmer. (Star Trek: Pioneer (STP))

Annika Hansen remembered only one line of Relm's holonovel, For a Ton of Bricks: Tu es tellement LOURDE! (RIS Bouteina episode: "Distress Call")

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Jedi Archives held millions of holobooks.

A holobook was a slim, crystalline board which was used to store vast amounts of information. Holobooks were incredibly durable and required only a small amount of power to remain active. The Jedi Archives, located on Coruscant during the last decades of the Old Republic, contained millions of holobooks, some of which dated back to the origins of the Republic. When properly stored and maintained, holobooks gave off a soft, blue glow. Like the Jedi Holocrons, holobooks provided interactive interfaces to their knowledge, allowing a reader to delve as deeply into subject matter as they desired.
