Description
Unread Books Glow by duggelz

Books which you have not read yet will have a visible glow. When you read a book for the first time, its glow will disappear. All copies of the same title are considered the same book, so once you've read one "Cats of Skyrim", you've read them all.

== Features ==

* Unread books glow and have an "*" before their name
* Uses SKSE and SkyUI if installed, but doesn't require them
* Recognizes all books your character has previously read (SKSE)
* Tracks books from any mod or DLC
* Spell tomes are green, skill books are red, quest books and regular
books are various shades of blue
* Settings configured in-game via SkyUI or spell

== Install ==

Steam Workshop: Click the green "Subscribe" button. You may also need
to start the Skyrim launcher, click on "Data Files", and make sure
that "UnreadBooksGlow.esp" is listed and has a check mark in the
columns labeled "Load?" and "Subscribed?".

If you have SKSE[skse.silverlock.org] version 1.6.8 or better installed, several features
of this mod will work better. If you have SkyUI[skyrim.nexusmods.com] version 3.1 or better
installed, you can use the Mod Configuration Menu to access this mod's
options. Both are highly recommended.

== Upgrade ==

If you're upgrading from a previous version, you might see odd
behavior until you enter a new location.

== Uninstall ==

Move your character to an interior location that has no unread books.
Save your game and exit Skyrim.

Steam Workshop: Click the green "Unsubscribe" button from the Steam
Workshop page. Then start the Skyrim launcher, click on "Data Files",
highlight "UnreadBooksGlow.esp", and click "Delete Selected".

== Limitations ==

* If you don't have SKSE version 1.6.8 or above, books you've read
before installing this mod are not recorded. You will have to read
them again.
* Only the nearest 100 books are affected in any location.
* Books in containers and merchant inventories are usually not
recognized as unread.
* Quest books added by DLC and other mods are treated as "plain" books.
Spell tomes and skill books should work fine.

== Configuration ==

If you have SkyUI installed, press "Escape", click on "Mod
Configuration", and then "Unread Books Glow". You will see a page
with various options.

If you do not have SkyUI installed, open the in-game "Magic" menu,
select "Powers", and select "{Unread Books Glow Settings}". Then exit
the menu. Your character will appear to have a spell readied. Cast
the spell as normal (usually just clicking the left mouse button) and
a settings menu will appear. It has less options than the SkyUI menu.

== Compatibility ==

This mod should automatically handle books added by DLC and other
mods. However, there might be conflicts with other mods that change
the behavior of books in general. If you find something noteworthy
that does or doesn't work, let me know and I will add it here.

Compatible:
* Better Skill and Quest Books Names
* Book Covers Skyrim
* Bookshelves Script SKSE
* Improved Skill Books
* Non-Automatic Skill Books
* Read And Learn Speechcraft Speech
* Sometimes Pick Up Books

Maybe Compatible:
* Unlimited Bookshelves (works for some people, not for others)

Probably Not Compatible:
* Deja Vu - I Already Read It
* Mark Books as Read

== Distribution ==

This file is available on the Skyrim Nexus and the Steam Workshop.

== Translations ==

This mod includes translations contributed by various helpful people.
You will need SKSE and SkyUI installed to see translations. I will
not be be using the older method of creating multilingual Skyrim mods,
because it's horrible. This means the "{Unread Books Glow Settings}"
power will always be in English. Other people may provide translated
.esp files, in which case I'll link to them from here.

Localization is tricky, and hard to test. Accent marks always seem to
get mangled one way or another. So if you spot an error, post a
comment and I'll look at it.

Translations for past and present versions of this mod were
contributed by the following people:

Czech: miraclefreak
English: me
French: brundlemouche, Maxheero
German: norden, Wingardium, TKHBMVP, quetzalcoatl666, 9Strike
Italian: Claska, Lucasssvt, Ciccigomma
Japanese: m0m
Polish: kolabor, ExplorR
Portuguese: R3v3r3ndo
Russian: Eriko, DJ_Kovrik
Spanish: Frodo45127, me + 8th grade Spanish

Any errors are likely to be mine, not the translators. Germans, you
must love Skyrim, four different people gave me five different
translations, so I went line by line picking the translation chosen by
the most people, and used Google Translate as a tie breaker.

Very cool. I like it.

I"ll be unsubscribing for this mod, for unknown reasons causes issues with cells as well as a horrible glitch with The Warmaidens door where i get stuck inside it. This also causes freezes occasionally. Before one assumes its my rig, no its not, its highend and easily can handle the game. But what it can't handle is a mod that causes conflicts with the game. Hopefully you can fix it sometime, until then, I'll just pick up any book I find on my own.

But Russian language is there to insert or not yet translated these books?

Useful

Is there any reason this isn't in the Bethesda Workshop? I mean, is it impossible or something? Or it's just a "haven't been done"? I LOVED this mod, need it xD

Great mod, I picked up books I wouldn't have picked up otherwise and it helped me save so much time in reading what I needed to read and leaving alone what I didn't necessairly need to go through.
