Despite the name, Wikibooks doesn't actually include that kind of thing.
Wikibooks deals with open-content textbooks, exclusively nonfiction.

Wikisource is the project for out-of-copyright texts and translations of
such texts. Unfortunately, new languages for Wikisource aren't held on the
Incubator like most of the other projects. They are held on the Old
Wikisource ( https://wikisource.org/ ). As it is, the SignWriting gadget is
not yet available on the Old Wikisource, so displaying any SignWriting on
that wiki is not yet possible.
