Skyrim – How to Duplicate Books Glitch
The amount of reading material in Skyrim is completely out of control — but the number of useful books is a whole different story. For every one skill book, there are twenty-five useless short stories that are only good for a fun distraction. A mighty adventurer needs mighty books, and lots of them. With this glitch you can duplicate any book you desire for money or skill points infinitely. Just give it a try, if you don’t want to mess with PC Console Commands or PC Item Codes.
How to Duplicate Books Glitch
Glitch should be compatible with UNPATCHED versions of Skyrim — X-box 360, Playstation 3, and PC. Clear the cache or remove the patch in your HD files to get this glitch to function properly. WARNING: Patched versions will simply stop working.
- Before starting, you’ll need a few things. First, you’ll need a house with an alchemy lab, which you can find with our House Buying Guide. Second, you’ll need some books, which you can find with our Skill Book Locations guide.
- Any book will count, but skill books will help you level up whatever skill you need. Another useful and valuable book is the Oghma Infinium, which we can also help you find with our Daedric Prince Quest Locations guide.
- With a house ready and some books you want to duplicate, enter the alchemy lab and find your bookshelf.
- Activate the bookshelf and place the book you wish to duplicate inside. Leave the menu, and immediately activate the bookshelf again. You’ll want the book to physically appear on the bookshelf while you’re still in the bookshelf loot menu. If the book doesn’t appear, just wait until it does while you’re still in the bookshelf loot menu.
- Once the book appears, hovering just in front of the shelf, loot the book from the menu.
- Now you can close the loot menu. The physical book should still be on your shelf, letting you read and take it. This allows you to take the same book twice.
- Repeat as desired with any valuable books! Goodluck!
