Great mod to have. Takes the tedious task of finding skill books by trial and error.

Thank you! I found this mod useful! ^_^ Helps a lot. But first I had the same thing: the books didn't glow so I had to unsub then re-sub like Nirvash, then it worked.

Same here, just make sure you configure it with a spell. ;-)
Nirvash Apr 14 @ 11:30pm 
So, on a whim, I decided to unsub from the mod, and then re-sub. Without doing anything else. Let it synch once more and replace it in the load order and now it works again. This was also the case with Midas Magic, even though I NEVER touched those files. But. It worked for some reason.

duggelz, same issue here as Nirvash. :-( I may try the Nexus version of SkyUI. Will that help?

@Nirvash: Start the Skyrim launcher, click on "Data Files", and make sure "Unread Books Glow" has a checkmark next to it. Additionally, the Steam Workshop version of SkyUI has some issues, check that page for more info (I have no connection to the SkyUI project).

This mod used to work fine for me, but now suddenly it doesn't. In the SkyUI, the little eye shows on books in the inventory if I've read them, but none of them glow in the world.

Additionally, with SKSE and SkyUI in their latest versions, I still don't get the spell or the mod configuration options mentioned, so as far as I know, despite the mod being turned on, nothing is working.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great mod. I think I have one of every book now.

@yrmama: == Uninstall ==

Move your character to an interior location that has no 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".

No, I mean I want to get rid of it now. But are you saying that, since I re-loaded it, it should "remember" what I've already read? I didn't expect it to.
I un-subscribed, but it's still going, that's what I meant.
duggelz  [author] Mar 28 @ 10:35am 
@yrmama: Not exactly sure what you're asking - are you trying to uninstall the mod or reinstall it? Reinstalling this mod resets all the data about which books are read, causing them to glow. It's possible to fix this by also installing SKSE, but that is a more complicated process.
yrmama Mar 26 @ 2:44pm 
Not that it was a bad mod, I loved it for the same OCD reasons as already listed, but when my computer wouldn't let me play anymore, I deleted the mods one by one & added them back & so ALL the books show up as unread.
yrmama Mar 26 @ 2:42pm 
O.K., I un-subscribed but I can't remember where on my PC to find the thingys that are running. I tried "task manager". This is a new laptop & has that Windows 8 or whatever it is & there's not the 'Start" button with all the options for searching.
Talk to me like I'm your mom, because I'm over 50 & never played videgames until Farmville on facebook a few years ago. There were computers when I was in school, but they took up a whole building & you had to punch all your data & commands onto stacks & stacks of cards & then feed them all in. No mouse, no icons, barely a screen, really.

i can not imagine playing without this mod.
MohamedTRex Mar 20 @ 5:04am 
a must have
yrmama Mar 17 @ 11:47am 
AAAGGH!!! I had to remove my mods, fix a problem, re-activate the mods. Now, all the books glow.
Vermilicious Mar 14 @ 5:59am 
Here's a suggestion for another mod, btw, since you managed to get objects to glow: make containers you haven't search have a slight glow (as long as loot didn't get re-added).
Vermilicious Mar 14 @ 5:57am 
This one's a must-have.
yrmama Mar 13 @ 1:36am 
I like this mod. I'm trying to collect one of every book in Skyrim in my library in the house at Heljarten (?) Hall, Some errors though: were these books I had read before I got the mod?

я чет не понял че он делает

This mod is awesome. Thanks!

best mod ever ;)

Super mod concept! Not working properly,
I read the same books over and over again,
although they glow - why?
bmartino1 Feb 9 @ 8:47am 
the mod was ok, i ahve to disbale it becasue it crashed my game... skyrim video goes crazy.... since all the other mods (5 other) that i have been playing ove 20 HOurs and now addin just this one and seeing this new graphic crashh, i can only asume that htis mod is not good for my system.... (I have everything uptodat... treid new instance(ne chacter)...reinstaled graphics driver twice!... reinsteld skyrim all together....) so i'm sorry but this mod for me is crap...

I love this mod so much. I've been subscribed for over two years. Sadly at the end of the day Immersion wins out for me. I found a mod that replaces this mod for me called Skyrim Book Covers. All I used this mod for was to be able to see skill and quest books which skyrim book covers does with subtle icons on book covers.

It just felt wrong to just unsubscribe from such a useful mod that has served me for over 2 years, So I wanted to leave this little thank you note as well as a thumbs up and a favourite.
ezekialx Feb 5 @ 11:18pm 
A fantastic and friggin useful mod! No more skimming through useless books to 'find' a skill book. An no more re-reading books. Haven't had any game crashes caused by this either. So win-win!
Kiula Jan 31 @ 10:07am 
Never has there been a more useful mod.
Iron Giant Jan 28 @ 12:45pm 
greatest mod ever.
Ravenyth Jan 27 @ 4:24pm 
Most practically useful mod ever. Brilliant. Thank you.
Saccillia Jan 17 @ 8:55am 
I have found this mod to be most useful. There is a sort of glitch where already read books seem to glow (Mostly spell books) and some books from expansions (?) are not glowing (?) But over all, I never leave home without this on.
boshanky Jan 17 @ 2:51am 
Love this mod. More so, that you can eliminate that pesky job of reading every book, and being able to set it so just skill books and quest starting books glow.
DragonBorn Jan 16 @ 10:25pm 
Yeah idk what happened but this mod crashes the game. After all saves and door opening, it crashes.
