Unfortunately, no. At this point all you can really do about it is talk to a GM.

Suggestion for improvement

I'd like to suggest that you implement a database containing spawn times for the various books. This list should automagically be synchronized on login with any other BookClub users online (peer-to-peer functionality, much like Group Calendar prior to v5). The list of spawn times should contain book/location (simplified as 1 - 8?), date/time and which build of WoW it happened with.

What would his give us? Well, it would, in time, remove much of the guesswork about the spawn timers. Some people say the common timer is 2.5 hours, while others claim that spawn timers are a random number of 15 minute periods.

It may even, in time, provide us with usable predictions about spawn times.

The reason I have included the build in the suggested database, is that the principle behind the spawn timers may change from build to build.

p.s. I have the achievement now

Due to the rarity of the book spawns, I have not yet been able to extensively test this release. If you have any problems please leave a comment.

Possible improvement

Most books seem to be on a 2.5 hour timer. Would it be possible to pop up a message, say 5 minutes before a book is expected to appear?
c
e.g. a fake book appears at visitor center at 15:43, causing a timed reminder at 18:08, that a book is likely to appear at the center

To receive announcements you simply need to join the BookClub channel. (/join BookClub)
On many servers there are already a group of players using this channel to alert each other when a book spawns.
This addon simply builds upon it by:
* Automatically joining the channel
* Adding exact time stamps to the channel
* Enhancing channel visibility
* Automatically announcing the location and name of books read in dalaran
