The Willamette Parkview Mall has five bookstores, which have 24 books that will increase Frank's abilities in different ways, so long as they are in his inventory.[1]

EffectsEdit

Different books have different effects, books with a:

  1. PP+ symbol - give Frank a boost in Prestige Points from photography or defeating zombies.
  2. Skill + symbol allow Frank to learn skateboarding and cycling skills, or skills that can make the escorting of Survivors easier.
  3. Heal + symbol boost the restorative power of food (multiple Books can be held in tandem to further increase the bonus percentage).
  4. Item + increase durability of certain books. Like the Heal+ Books, holding multiple Books with the same effect can increase this effect.

Press X when Frank is holding the book in his hands to see the book's effects.[2]

Multiple books with the same effectEdit

In this list below is the following:

  • (x2) = the item can be effected by two books at the same time.
  • (x3) = the item can be effected by three books at the same time.
For Example

If Frank is carrying these three books, the Hedge trimmer (x3) can have simultaneously its:

  1. durability increased by the Criminal Biography Book,
  2. durability increased even more by the Engineering Book,
  3. durability increased yet even more by the Lifestyle Magazine.

As an example of a book's abilities, the hedge trimmer was tested:

  • No book: 20 hits before destroyed
  • One books: 60 hits
  • Two books: 180 hits[3]
