After completing Horror from the Deep, you are rewarded with a damaged book of your choice: either Saradomin, Guthix, or Zamorak. You do not need to complete your current damaged book before obtaining a new one of a different type from Jossik. You can buy every damaged book in the same day. Dropping or destroying a damaged book and talking to Jossik results in him returning it to you.
You can check which pages are currently in your incomplete book with the "Check" option. Once you have filled the book, you cannot take the pages out.
