Pre-War books are miscellaneous items in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
These books are still legible even after the Great War, and could be useful to someone. In the Capital Wasteland, scribes with the Brotherhood of Steel have maintained expeditions to find these rare books, but in the Mojave, these books are little more than uninteresting clutter.
