Books can be very useful in Prophesy of Pendor. Their primary purpose is to give free boosts to your skills and attributes without having to level up. You can purchase them from the two Book Merchants (Finneas de Digit and Brother Randalf), in the taverns of towns. You can get their current location from travelers who are found in the taverns.

Some books simply provide bonuses to your skills while they are in your inventory. You do not have to read them, but losing the book will result in losing the skill bonus and the effect does not stack if you find more than one (if you're a lucky student that started with one). The second kind of book must be read, but the skill bonus is permanent. In order to read a book, you must go to the camp menu and "select a book to read". You will then read this book whenever you are resting, such as when you have set up camp, or are staying in a tavern. Once the book is finished, you will get a boost to a certain skill or attribute.

Bonuses can't pass the 10 level limit of skills, so make sure you only level up to 9 the skills of books you intend to read or equip.

Bonuses of inventory books don't stack and you can only read each book type once. All books weight 2.0.

Note: With 0 trade, books cost 2 times the cost the list show, with 14 trade, they only cost 1.3 times the price in the list.
