Interesting tidbit: Book means cool.

...It comes from text messaging culture. When you type with predictive text on your mobile phone the word ‘cool’ the word ‘book’ first appears. Users should then flick through the list of possible words to get to ‘cool’. British youth appears to be avoiding the additional keystrokes and using the word ‘book’ instead.
