When making miniature books, I sometimes use the real pages (which are never readable) and sometimes typeset summaries of the books, which are readable. I have set up a template that allows me to print double sided and have all the pages come out in the correct order. I know that reading a summary is not the same as reading the book, although I do try to make sure I include iconic quotes. However, there is something I like about the fact that you could actually read a miniature book and, when done, know exactly what happened in that book. Most of the Queen Mary's dollhouse books are readable (as are the books in Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle). Some of Queen Mary's book reproductions are available for sale--A Note of Explanation in full size, and a Sherlock Holmes story and a book called J. Smith by Fougasse in facsimile miniature versions.
