This mod does nothing! The mod provides only books! But then ... the original legends and sagas on which Skyrim is slightly based. Very slightly! There is still a quest in the game, although not activated, about gathering the poems of the Edda for the Bards College. So, you could call it "background history".

O_o Well, I've read the Eddas, but sure, I'll take this too, lol

What a lovely setting for the Sagas to be published! (Yes! I´m Icelandic)
Brings to bear, that someone with a good knowledge of Icelandic should have been consulted for instance when giving nordic names to characters in Skyrim. Hroki (for instance) is a masculine noun in Icelandic meaning arrogance, hardly suitable for a lovely maden in Markarth.
But none-the-less the use of old-nordic/Icelandic in the game has provided several chuckles and even laughs, and as such has proven to be a good source of entertainment in itself.

@dukethepcdr: That was not my intention, but maybe I could make a seperate mod for that.

Very cool. Nice to see a spotlight on real-life nordic stories. Would be even cooler if reading them boosted one's speech skill or something though.

My new bosmer archer is saving her gold to buy the set (she could only buy the first 5 this trip to Riften), she dreams of owning all the sets. Nice to have goals. Thanks for adding all these books to the game.
