How to take your ‘Skyrim’ book collection on the go

Just yesterday, the staff here at VGW was fantasizing about how awesome it would be to have an iPhone or Android app that would allow us to read the massive collection of historical documentation, fiction and non-fiction from Skyrim on the go. Well, Elder Scrolls addicts, we’re here to announce something even better: A fellow Skyrim fan and software developer has peered into the PC code and extracted every single tome from the corners of Skyrim, and has made it available in convenient (and of course free) Kindle and EPUB formats.

The savvy programmer noticed that all of the volumes were in plain text, and took it upon himself to create a cover and table of contents. Then he converted it into separate Kindle and EPUB (Nook, iOS, etc) formats which literally anyone can read (though, legally, you should own a copy of Skyrim).

If you’re anything like us, you’ve been scouring the snowy expanses and hidden corners for new books to digest, and meticulously placed them in your virtual homes with the intent of reading them, but there’s just all that addictive adventuring getting in the way. Now you can augment your Skyrim experience on the go, absorbing everything from The Dwemer Inquiries to all eight entries in The Wolf Queen series.

If you don’t have a Kindle or a Nook, we’ve collected a few ways for you to read this collection on your PC or Mac:
