I think the "look <direction>" text is meant to be a single line, so 
you're probably using more memory than is available.  I think what you 
should be looking into is room extra descriptions.  They're a lot closer 
to working the way you want for the books.  You'll have to give each book 
in the room a unique name thos, because they won't be able to look 
(correct me if that's wrong) but you can have them look spells and look 
history, etc.
