Another question might be "Are some genres better than others for such accidental discoveries?"
My principal fiction genre is SF/fantasy, though I read a fair amount of mysteries and various other things. There are certainly things I would not have known were it not for my reading, as I encountered something unfamiliar and one thing led to another.
I specifically except non-fiction from the question. While you can (and I do) read non-fiction for pleasure, part of the assumption going in when reading non-fiction is that you will learn something. With fiction, such learning is serendipitous.

Ok. I figured out my confusion. When I heard "parchment" I thought of parchment paper for baking which is a plant source.
Parchment paper is also referred to the fancy looking paper used to mimic historical documents.
