comment Is “et al.” used as a singular or plural subject?
I agree with your statement. But I think it would be better put as a comment to the "ngram"-answer than as an answer on its own. (The answer part "look at the subject of the sentence" is already covered by user21497 answer)

Sounds logical and plausible. I've also only rarely seen the usage of the article or book as the subject. So plural seems to be the right choice in most cases. Thanks.
