Read Every Book in Skyrim

Part of the fun of reading books in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is getting back-story on all the characters and lands contained within Bethesda’s world, but really that pales in comparison to the stat bonuses simply reading the books gives the player. However, with a world as large as Skyrim, and with probably thousands of books to steal/acquire throughout the world, some may never even know just how deep the literature of the game gets.

Thankfully, one clever gamer has compiled a comprehensive of every book in Skyrim, and has transcribed all the information contained within them. Unfortunately, the dedicated fan that put together this virtual library only compiled the books in .epub and .mobi form, which means they are meant for either a Nook or a Kindle.

Nonetheless, if you own either of these e-devices, or if you download the kindle app for PC, you should have no problem diving headfirst into the lore of Skyrim. The only downside is that all of those cool bonuses that come with reading books, including one exploit that can result in leveling your character very fast, are not possible.

There’s much more to Skyrim than just reading books, or even slaying the game’s infinite number of dragons, but just seeing that one fan can compile a “library” of every book within the game shows just how extensive of a world Bethesda has created.

From the game’s many guilds, to its dungeons, to its new and improved menus, there are so many features that, on their own, would be worth exploring for hours, that it makes just being away from the game make you want to do nothing than play the game.

And now, if you want to read up on your Skyrim lore whilst traveling over the holidays or just because, you can.

Which of the books that you’ve read so far in Skyrim has been the most interesting? Do you think more games should incorporate reading books for back-story?

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is available now for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    Very well made. The ebook I mean. (Or should I say books?)

    The format is very easy on the eyes once put on the Kindle itself. I’m very excited to sit back and get in touch with my inner Nord scholar.

    I was literally saying earlier today that someone should compile all of the books in the Elder Scrolls universe into one book. Cool. Wish I could get it in paper though.

    I haven’t started on it yet, mostly because I’m missing book 3 of the collection of I hope only 7 books, but it’s The Wolf Queen. I only really read the 6th one (because thats the one I found first) and its also a quest item… for something.
