This is not a good FAQ topic at all. Users should search the questions for "books" and see if their question matches, they shouldn't have to check a FAQ for listings of questions that have already been asked, lest we end up with dozens of FAQ pages that keep a list of all the questions already asked for certain topics.
Edit: Making another post to highlight to people that there are dupes is completely nonsensical. So instead of posting to relevant dupes you want to post to a post about relevant dupes. Congratulations you just added another layer to the whole mess instead of saying "This is a dupe" and you close it as such, which would then point back to the correct question(s).
