Danny, I think you might have been affected by the text that you quote from the books.Though you do add blockquotes around them, Panda has this problem of classifying documents as low quality or of low value when it finds even a few lines of text quoted from somewhere else. That has been my experience so far and it does look silly.
At the same time, I have also come across sites that continue to do well even if all they do is aggregation of content posted somewhere else.This might be because the algos are applied differently for different sites based on how the google engine understands and classifies them.
This algo is fine with certain things on certain sites but not on others.
