Where's my cookie? (Seriously though, over 100k for a freakin' book?)

And you'd think that you'd be able to read more than just a couple of paragraphs from a book that hasn't been in production for several centuries http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The prices for books (or anything else for that matter) in Cappodocia are absurd. I think it's mostly due to the fact that it's "Templar controlled", so you are taxed hardcore - whereas in Constantinople you're in "Assassin territory, so you get a discount".

He's Ezio God damn Auditore! If he saw a person selling a book for that much he'd beat the crap out of the dude and steal the book!

Those were really rare books and books were quite expensive in those days.

Pardon me for sounding like a moron but what do books actually do in this game?
I've noticed a little Assassin symbol and a percentage next to it but have no idea what it means.

If you collect all of them you get a nice cutscene at the Assassin base. There's also a description for each book.

How many books are there? I'm pretty sure I've done all Polo Symbol missions and I've bought all books I could find. I have 31 books now, but nothing happens when I go to the hideout.

Oh right. And an achievement/trophy indeed.

Did you get the ones in Cappadocia?

You know whats really f*cked up?

You get a cutscene for all books but I collected all animus datafragments and got nothing. Just the lame trophy. That was frustrating. I thought there would be at least something at Animus Island. It was so pointless to collect all 100.

I wish I knew of it earlier. The trophy is nice but an in-game unlockable would be far better.

I already knew. It was a little disappointing, but I didn't really mind.

What's the requirements to show everything on the map? I always do EVERYTHING I can before missions on these games my first go.

I totally was able to buy a memoir map where I can't see it my second quick playthrough whenever I visit the store. Maybe I need to collect books or something?

The fragments, I completed the 22 sync point and they all just appeared on my map last time. I already had like 40 or something though. This time, nothing.

The books on the map show up after the first seal mission where you have to find one of the books. The rest can be bought from stores.

I think after you collect 25 Animus Data Fragments that you get the option to buy the map of Ishak Pasha Memoir Pages at Book Stores. After you collect 50 Animus Data Fragments the other 50 automatically show up on your map.
