About this mod

Reading books now grants you experience in a randomly picked skill. Why? Two different people may read the same book and learn totally different lessons! And, this way, the normally-useless books cluttering Skyrim are now potentially useful to all classes!

Reading books now grants you experience in a randomly picked skill. Why? Two different people may read the same book and learn totally different lessons! And, this way, the normally-useless books cluttering Skyrim are now potentially useful to all classes! I also didn't want to specify a skill for each of the hundreds of books - so I let the randomizer do the hard work for me :-)

Inspired by (alternatives) - all of which are pretty much the same concept, but only boost the speech skill, and many lack Book Covers of Skyrim support.

How it works

When you read a book that you haven't read before, you receive a variable amount of experience toward a semi-randomly chosen skill. I’ve attempted to make the amount of experience gained noticeable at lower levels, but not overpowered.

This mod does not touch skill books (since I like how "Reading is Good" handles those) or notes/letters/journals (there's nothing to learn in those.)

I like the idea of random skills versus the more common speech-only mods, because two people might read the same book and take away totally different lessons. It also makes books more useful to all classes – even a barbarian might learn something about how to swing an axe - you never know!

That being said, I made some skills more likely to be randomly chosen than others, since you can only learn so much about swinging an axe from a book!

This mod has been bundled up as an ESL-flagged ESP, so it doesn't count against your load order. Neat-o!
