20 summaries of various non-magical, mundane books your players can purchase or find in a treasure. Detail on the books is brief, so if your players plan on reading rather then selling you'll be making up the details yourself.
Fair price for summarized content.


LIKED: Nice premade books to give to players on-the-fly.

DISLIKED: Would have appreciated books that had a few different authors instead of repeating the same authors for several books, especially when there's only 20 books in the collection and half of them are by 3 authors.

A description of how the book looks would have been nice as well.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

This product was everything it was promised to be, and not a word more. Not unreasonable for the "sale" price.

Though the description admits that one of the six pages is the cover, it doesn't mention that a second page is spent on the copyright and contact information (no, not yet another copy of the OGL). Once you ignore that the last page only contains about a third of a page of text (plus lots of white space and some unhelpful filler art), you really only get a little over 3 pages of content.

On the upside, its nice to have titles and subjects that aren't randomly generated gibberish. Yes, any GM can make these up, but that doesn't mean we have time to figure out what's on the shelf before an adventure. I expect this will be useful.

LIKED: Reasonable price for content that makes sense.

DISLIKED: The descriptions of the book contents was thin; good enough if your players don't ask many questions about the books, but if they take an interest in one, be prepared to create on the fly. (Don't forget to keep notes!)

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Exactly as advertised. You get 20 short descriptions of mundane books on a variety of topics. Great for adding a bit of roleplaying flavor, an inexpensive treasure (all books are given approximate values), or a collectible tidbit.


LIKED: It's a nice idea. I like that most of the books throughout this series are lower-end from a value perspective, and are non-magical. They are good for some ideas or just some filler.

DISLIKED: A little more material on each (like maybe a physical description) would have been nice to see. Also, the introductory stuff was disproportionately long compared to the main content.


QUALITY: Acceptable

For thoe DMs/GMs who are tormented by the bard-like character or wizard who just has to know what is in the library and won't take "books" as an answer. Each book listed has a short description of what it's about and should make the character in question feel like they have found something unique! At the beginning there is a listing of the book in question, what race or culture the book came from and the gold value of the book. There is also a way to determine the books randomly.

LIKED: The list of the books first and the description following the list.

DISLIKED: Not so much a dislike as a possible future idea. Perhaps a table to determine which PDF to use would be handy in later versions

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied
