Do any of the DLC's even add new skill or quest books?

really useful! I always try and not read the books so I can use them at a high level, and this makes is so much easier!

is this mod for all books of skyrim and its dlc's or just vanilla skyrim?

Best mod!

Almost certainly, this mod doesn't affect books in your inventory at all (other than the item name), it merely intercepts books you activate in the world before you read them and moves them to your inventory instead. You may also have another book mod that is causing a problem.

I recently downloaded this and I'm getting worried that it isn't actually letting me get the skill. Since I downloaded it, I've found 3 skill books and none of them have been added (even after reading them in my inventory). This is the only mod I have installed, so it can't be a conflict. Did I just have bad luck and find three books I've already read?

Ahh, sounds useful. *nod nod* I'll just go click that somewhat big green button here...

I'c used this excellent mod for ages now, then all of a sudden it has stopped "working" on - some - books. Not all of the, just some?

This is really nice, but it makes me pick up the books and put them in my inventory before i can read them. Just a small problem, but i'm nit-picking. Great mod, and keep it up."

This is not a problem, it's GREAT! Stops you from gaining skills/levels in skills you don't want to use.

I hate finding the same skill book all around Skyrim and not getting level-ups from it.

Great mod! DvB14, I was having that same problem, but just realized there's a link in the description for a version of this mod that doesn't have you pick up the book automatically.

Thank talos or something like that for this beautiful addition so good

where do you find the books
elGrecoLoco  [author] Nov 26, 2013 @ 11:44am 
It doesnt conflict per se with other book mods, as in it won't cause crashes and such, but whichever mod loads last gets precedence, i.e. the changes this mod makes will get wiped out by the other book mod if the other book mod loads after. So basically only use one or the other.

does this confilct at all with the unread books glow mod?
That Poor Astronaut Nov 24, 2013 @ 7:46am 
Finally, no more getting Block or some other shit i dont want, thank you so much :)
alomamabobo Oct 17, 2013 @ 2:56am 
Nice for rerolls :)
PUTSY000 Sep 14, 2013 @ 7:38am 
a definite bonus to the books of the game. A job well done
TheYouthfulGamer Aug 31, 2013 @ 9:18am 
UPDATE PLEASE!
mbrmchll Jul 31, 2013 @ 8:30pm 
I love this mod but it only works for some of the skills books. Is there a certain place in the load order that I should have it to keep this from happening? The only other mod I have that deals with the books is "Tamriel Compendium" and it doesn't touch the books already in the game. It just adds new ones.
ltmadden26 Jul 28, 2013 @ 12:16am 
mbdddddddddddddddddd, where is it
skatimmy737 Jul 16, 2013 @ 7:52pm 
Where should I order this mod in relation to the glowing unread books mod?
bside Jul 12, 2013 @ 10:29pm 
Very useful. Keeps me from missing skill books in my inventory
Nyx Jul 10, 2013 @ 7:06pm 
Woo!

Essential mod. Brilliant.
Danish May 18, 2013 @ 11:42am 
An absolute "must have" mod, thanks.
⌠ƒ€ѦГ⌡Teaser Tonny May 16, 2013 @ 5:09pm 
Can you somehow add a mod to do this for all books whether it is a skill book or not?
Dark Mobius May 16, 2013 @ 7:04am 
Never thought to save the points from books until those last few levels. Good idea. Subbed!
Firesaber Apr 20, 2013 @ 2:46pm 
mod works perfect. haven't had any problems. thanks to the author.
MaBra Apr 16, 2013 @ 10:36am 
Compatible with other language?
bruno_franca2005 Apr 13, 2013 @ 11:27am 
I was always looking for a mod like this. Thx
Darko Apr 12, 2013 @ 6:18pm 
This is really great and does exactly what it says :)
Majerus Apr 11, 2013 @ 8:38pm 
Just wanted to say Thanks for this, it's been a nice solid mod that helps in game.

I think having a skill book being read when taking would be more efficient than having to go into your items, find the book, and then read it.
MaxKnekker Bolton Mar 28, 2013 @ 2:54am 
Very useful mod, great job
Fear2288 Mar 21, 2013 @ 4:28am 
I don't know if anyone has thrown this out there or maybe the two authors have contacted one another but I think this mod and Unread Books Glow should just combine themselves into one mod. Both are equally helpful and together they're great at letting the player know not only what books grant what skill but what books have been read already. I think it'd be a win-win for everyone and would just give users one nice .esp file instead of two.
Shepard Shepard Mar 15, 2013 @ 1:15pm 
When I go back and read the skill books later I don't get the skill increase. What am I doing wrong?
mc3w3n Mar 15, 2013 @ 5:21am 
Great mod
Fear |GX Feb 21, 2013 @ 2:11am 
Nice, simple, clean, thanks :)
Phont Feb 18, 2013 @ 3:08pm 
I can not get this mod to function properly for me. The skill is never tagged onto the book's title as intended.
Scientific Apples Feb 18, 2013 @ 3:50am 
finally now i dont have to waste my time opening every book i see
ionastorm Feb 8, 2013 @ 5:13pm 
BigDaddyDream 30 Jan 2013 @ 7:52pm
Is this compatible with the Unread Books Glow mod?
-----
Yep perfectly, i use both! It glows and says what it is, nothing else to dream about!
Tnx for the mod!

Will this corrupt my game if I uninstall this mod?
tuxxyy Jan 23, 2013 @ 4:46pm 
Cool good to know I added it back, I'll give it a shot -- chances are my quest bugged for another reason then, thanks.
elGrecoLoco  [author] Jan 23, 2013 @ 3:41pm 
The dialog reset is a bug with vanilla Skyrim. This mod doesn't edit anything to do with the thieves' guild quests so my guess is you have an issue with another mod. Everything is still working as usual with the latest version.
tuxxyy Jan 19, 2013 @ 1:16am 
This mod broke my Thieves Guild fishing, bedlam, etc quests until I uninstalled the mod. It reset them in a way, too, in that Vex and Devlin re-explained what each quest type was. I'm worried this has reset my quest counter for the Nightingale quest too but I have no easy way of confirming that.
Hark155 Jan 12, 2013 @ 5:15am 
is it bugged just now? recently reinstalled Skyrim and i cannot get this mod working, hoping its a conflict with another mod but i am unsure. Picking up skill books i dont want to read :(

Спасибо автору за мод.
Thanks for mod.
