# DESCRIPTION #
##############

Many of the books in the Dragonborn DLC lack proper object bounds, which causes them to glitch out and clip through each other when used with expanded bookshelf mods like Unlimited Bookshelves and Bookshelves Script SKSE. This adds object bounds so they work correctly. More specifically, it adds object bounds identical to those of corresponding vanilla book models to all references in the "books" category in Dragonborn.esp, including all notes and journals. Created entirely in TES5EDIT.

################
# REQUIREMENTS #
################

Most likely none besides Dragonborn itself. May require the Unofficial Dragonborn Patch as it copies that mod's book references to preserve compatibility, but should work regardless.

################
# COMPATIBILITY #
################

Compatible with Unofficial Dragonborn Patch v1.0.4 (i.e. the version available as of 8/5/13). May be incompatible with future versions of of the unofficial patch, but I'll try to get it integrated so that's not a problem. Potentially incompatible with any other mod that makes changes to books from the Dragonborn DLC, but as far as I know no such mods exist so don't worry about it.

Compatible, tested and confirmed to work with both Unlimited Bookshelves and Bookshelves Script SKSE.

###############
# INSTALLATION #
###############

Simply install using the mod manager of your choice, or unzip into Data folder of your Skyrim directory and enable in the Data Files tab of SkyrimLauncher.

IMPORTANT: this mod MUST load AFTER the Unofficial Dragonborn Patch or some of the changes will be overwritten and a few books will lose their bounds again.

####################
# RECOMMENDATIONS #
####################

Bookshelves Script SKSE - A great, simple and elegant mod that allows you to fill bookshelves totally, as opposed to the vanilla system where the maximum 19 books will rarely completely fill the shelf, leading to an ugly 'falling dominoes' effect. The best bookshelf mod there is. Without this the book bounds fix will probably do nothing.
