My Skyrim mods are no longer supported.

I haven't even started the game up for over a year, and I don't really remember much specific to modding it. Using this mod won't ruin your game or anything (though you should back up any files it tries to overwrite), but chances are that if you've got a problem, I can't really help you.

As far as alternatives go, you might want to consider Authentic Books and Notes.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I love reading the in-game books, but find the default font used difficult to read at times. While at first I only uploaded Planewalker, I don't see anything wrong with including a few more. If you have any suggestions please let me know, I won't promise to add all of them but I am curious to see what others want. Note that I'm only going to add fonts whose licensing allows it.

Current fonts available:
Cheboygan
Datura
Magik
Michaelmas
Old Typefaces
Planewalker

If the font you want isn't up here and its licensing doesn't allow for conversion, you can do it yourself. Using the sIRF Generator (http://www.sifrgenerator.com/), you can convert ttf font files to swf files, which the game can use. Note that some fonts may not have all the characters necissary, and I've found that some don't work even if they do though I can't figure out why. After this, you need to edit the file 'fontconfig.txt' in your interface folder like so:

Add the following line:
fontlib "Interface\yourfontname.swf"

And change the following line:
map "$SkyrimBooks" = "SkyrimBooks_Gaelic" Normal
to
map "$SkyrimBooks" = "yourfontname" Normal

Obviously, replace yourfontmane with whatever you called the swf file.

If you're using another mod that edits fonts, you'll likely have to edit the fontconfig.txt as shown above.

Screenshots also show the book texture from Realistic Paper (http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=937), which I highly recommend.
