Description

After finding out that Book Covers Skyrim added support for Read Books Aloud I was more than happy to finally add it to my load order.
Unfortunately, the only available Audio Book files I could find where the basic text-to-speech files generated by Sjors Boomschors. 
While those certainly do a well enough job, TTS-programms often lack the vocabulary of the ingame-universe to do a proper pronunciation of things like "Tsaesci", "daedric" and "Jyggalag".

So I started downloading and converting  for me personally pleasing Book Reading from Youtube, mainly for personal use, at least to bridge the time till more professional audio book files are available. (Just to make sure, the unprofessional in this equation is me, not the voice actors.)
