Nodrop or not be cpk'ed?
If not, are there any spellbooks out there that are non-cpk?
I might be going on a bit of a tangent here, but I'm also rather confused about how cpk works. Do the items you have equipped or held become dropped (and cpk'ed) when you die? Or is it just items in your inventory?

A CPK will force you to leave behind a large number of your possessions, including your equipped gear and inventory. Some items and containers are not affected by this and will never be left behind. Your assailant then, has the opportunity to pick through the things you left behind on your corpse.

To add a bit onto what Thralk said, the equipment you drop is somewhat random (you wont necessarily drop everything), and players will obviously take anything valuable. Some mobs will also loot your corpse, so you need to be careful with those. When you die, you're presented with a nice list of what's in your corpse
Getting cpked can vary in terms of impact. When Im active, I get cpked at least twice a week by mobs (and I spend most of my active time in cpk). On the other hand, I don't think I've ever lost more than a mil in gear to a player via cpk. As a new player, there are very few reasons you should have to go into most cpk areas, and there is no reason for you to take expensive gear into cpk, especially not at low levels. If you're careful, you can mitigate most of the risks of cpk.
