About this mod

Adds readable books to New Vegas using lStewieAl's Book Menu Restored. Currently includes over 275 books!

Permissions and credits
Adds readable books to New Vegas using lStewieAl’s Book Menu Restored.
I should note that this mod doesn’t add the entire book, just sections and chapters.

These books are in the public domain and were found using Project Gutenberg.

This mod comes with a FOMOD installer (made using the FOMOD Creation Tool by Wenderer).

During installation you will have two optional settings:
+Replacer Plugin:
Using both dynamic scripts and hard edits to leveled lists, vanillla “Pre-War Books” are replaced by a random readable book from New Vegas Library Project.
The Scripting used in this plugin is somewhat experimental so keep that in mind if you choose to use it.

+Wonderglue Requirement:
By default, to convert a Vanilla “PreWar Book” into one that can be read and vice versa, simple “Shift-Left Click” on it in your pipboy.

This setting adds a requirement of 1 Wonderglue to convert books back and forth.

This mod should be compatible with any other mod, and if you use the Replacer Plugin, books placed by other mods will be converted into readable books.

==Future Plans==
 I’ll probably continue to add books to this mod when I have the chance.  If there are books you'd like to recommend, please let me know.

One thing that would be neat to add would be some books written by ingame factions (i.e. a scientific journal published by the Followers of the Apocalypse, a NCR Troopers journal, poetry by the Legate Lanius etc. etc.). If this sounds like something you might be interested in, feel free to send me your writings and I’d be happy to look into includeing it the mod.

It’s a novelization of the song by Jim Varnado and the first  chapter was available for free on the author’s website.The Book’s amazon page states its out of print and the website is currently only  accessible by the wayback machine.  I figured I just had to include the chapter so hopefully Mr. Varnado doesn’t mind.)
