    Full list of skill books in TESV: Skyrim. If you find any mistakes, report them so I can correct it.

    Note: Incomplete lists are marked with pink. Complete lists are marked with teal.
    Note: All skill books increase the corresponding skill by 1. Multiple reads of the same book does not increase the skill further.

    Hmmm you sure it was speech +1? i found the same book and it gave me two-handed +1. could the boost you get depend on your race maybe? im nord. or might it be a random skill from a pool associated with each skill book?

    Updated, should be a near complete list now. Sorted by skill now. Sorting by location turned out to be rather confusing with the mass of different locations. I tried to keep it as lightweigth as possible. List for all Stones of Barenziah incoming next :p
