    It should be "went off", not "come off"; you are confusing come and go.

    I applied the following meaning in my sentence to mean, "I stoped using/reading this book because it has wrong/incorrect infromation".

    come off sth (STOP USING) phrasal verb MAINLY UKIf you come off medicine or drugs, you stop using them:
    He's come off the tablets because they were making him dizzy.
