In cooperative, I am finding books, but when I click on them - they just turn into gold... Does this mean I already have read them or do you not get the lore in multiplayer?

This just means you already have the book; has nothing to do with whether you playin coop or not. You get the same behaviour in (pseudo) single player I believe. – deutschZuid May 16 '12 at 0:16

You will only get experience the first time you pick up a specific book. Any time after, you will only get gold, even if that book was in a different location.

If it is the first time picking up the book, you will hear the dialog, even if you are playing with others.

Yep, just confirmed this by finding a book I haven't found on my own yet. – Zero Stack May 16 '12 at 0:39

I believe a single character can only pick up the lore books that would give experience once.

This makes a bit of sense to stop people from server hopping to level by picking up the lore books laying around towns.
