Baby's first mod!

I am both excited and nervous--
Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

ANYWAY

Poetry of Skyrim aims to cater to the bibliophiles among us with ten volumes of poems by select authors. It started when I thought, "How cool would it be to have a bookshelf in a custom house full of my favorite poems?"

These poems were carefully collected by someone named Kaylia Kelderene as she traveled all over Skyrim from a faraway country. At the end of every volume is a little note on how she came across the poem/song or what she thinks its meaning might be. This isn't meant to be ENTIRELY in step with lore-- it was just something fun I decided to do to give it a little bit of care and story. "Kaylia" was the name of the protagonist in the first book I ever wrote. A lot of the people Kaylia mentions in her notes are based on my own friends and loved ones.

The books can be bought from Sayma at Bits and Pieces in Solitude, or Urag gro-Shub at the college in Winterhold. (I am still trying to figure out how to get them to spawn in the world in chests or bookshelves... thought I had it at one point, but I was wrong. Oops.)

Since this is my first mod, I might have broken something-- please let me know, and be gentle with me; I learned this in an afternoon. I'm happy to take requests for more poems or songs-- or little story blurbs. Just make sure to provide the author's name and title of their work; that way, we can give the proper people the proper credit.

Speaking of credit.

The book mesh used, as well as the textures, come from modder's resources that are free to use. They are from the same author, DanielCoffey.

Mesh can be found here. This was for regular Skyrim, but everything seems to be working fine anyway!
Textures can be found here. There are SO many textures here, and many people worked on them-- please give it a look, an endorsement, whatever it is we do to show our support. (The texture I picked reminded me of one of my favorite journals I had when I was younger.)

Thank you for giving this mod a look! Thanks to Eli for beta-testing this for me; you rock.
