This is a collection of Compatibility Patches between the Book Covers Skyrim mod and other popular mods that affect books.
Please be advised that this collection is only intended to be used with the LEGENDARY ALL-IN-ONE version of Book Covers Skyrim. Do not attempt to use these patches with the previous separate ESP version.
It is bundled as a single collection with an intelligent Wizard for both BAIN and FOMOD installers such as Nexus Mod Manager, ModOrganizer and Wrye Bash to help you choose which patches are appropriate for your personal Skyrim installation.
The list of supported mods is likely to grow so check back occasionally. Feel free to suggest mods that you feel would benefit from a Compatibility Patch and I will review adding them to the list.
REQUIEM - The Roleplaying Overhaul is a popular total overhaul which not only adds its own books but renames many of the Potion, Poison and Atronach Recipes. The Compatibility Patch helps Requiem access the Book Covers Skyrim resources for the modified recipes and the Requiem custom content. It is possible in the future that these resources will be absorbed into Requiem itself which will remove the need for this patch.
BSQBN - Better Skill and Quest Book Names adds a prefix to the beginning of Skill Books as well as Books or Notes that start quests or give you a map marker. With this patch, those books will now inherit the Book Covers Skyrim appearance.
SKYRE - T3nd0s Skyrim Redone is an insanely popular gameplay overhaul which has a small affect on certain skill books. Since SkyRe repurposes the Lockpicking perk tree as Wayfarer and merges the old Lockpicking and Pickpocket trees into Fingersmith, a Compatibvility Patch is needed.
A combined BSQBN + SKYRE patch is available for players who enjoy both mods.
TCIY - The Choice Is Yours improves dialogue and quest start options in the game and affects one Note to do with a quest in Markarth. The Compatibility Patch is tiny but necessary for the quests to flow as intended.
ASM - Another Sorting Mod as its name suggests is another popular sorting mod. By default, Book Covers Skyrim is released in a Better Sorting/Enhanced Better sorting flavour but some people preferred ASM and requested a Compatibility Patch.
Organized Books is another Book Sorting mod. Its main purpose is to alter volume numbers along the lines of "Bookname, Vol. 1 of 4"
Complete Crafting Overhaul Remade is, as its name suggests, an overhaul of the Skyrim crafting system. It affects two books - the Light and Heavy Armor Forging and the Bonemold Formula Note.
Non-Automatic Skill Books allows the player to choose whether to accept the skill gain from reading a book or not. Both the Normal and Better (Skill prefix) versions are supported.
REZ Sorting Mod is a new Sorting mod with very broad scope. It affects every book, journal and note so needed a Compatibility Patch.
Read Books Aloud which adds a hook for Audio Book files for many of Skyrim's Books and Journals.
Read And Learn Speechcraft Speech gives Speechcraft skill increases when certain of the more Literary books are read.
Enhanced Better Sorting is one of the popular Sorting mods based on Better Sorting. Please note that the patches inside Enhanced Better Sorting for Book Covers Skyrim are very out of date and should no longer be used which is why I have provided this patch instead.
Improved Skill Books adds a skill suffix to skill books but also allows you to delay reading them until you choose to do so. There is a patch for players both with and without SkyRe.

The following mods are NOT COMPATIBLE with Book Covers Skyrim at this time, either because they are out of date, unsupported, or because they have a complete overlap with the Book Covers mod.
Qotsafans Compatibility Patches is well out of date and the patch for Book Covers Skyrim that is included was last updated in the middle of 2013. Do not use the Qotsafans - Book Covers patch.
Unlimited Bookshelves is out of date and unsupported as the owner is banned. Please consider using either Bookshelves SKSE Script or Bookshelves Updated SKSE Script
Enhanced Better Sorting - Book Covers Patch as included in the Enhanced Better Sorting mod is out of date and does not support the most recent version of Book Covers Skyrim. Please do not use EBS - Books (Before).esp or EBS - Books (After.esp) from that mod. Use the new Compatibility Patch from this collection instead.
