If all that sounds like too much work, and you really must read all the books now, you may go to the Elder Scrolls Book Club test cell.  Open up your console using the tilde key, and type in 'coc ESBookClub' to teleport there.  Read all the books you wish.  You can return to Cyrodiil by typing 'coc Weye' or some other location.

1. Extract the files to a temporary location.
2. Examine the folder structure and make corrections where necessary.
3. Copy files to (install folder)\Oblivion\Data\
4. Start Oblivion Launcher, click 'Data Files', place a checkmark beside the .esp file(s).

1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file(s).
2. Delete the files and folders associated with the mod:

Oblivion\Data\Elder Scrolls Book Club - Oblivion.esp
Oblivion\Data\Elder Scrolls Book Club - Oblivion Readme.txt (this file)

The only way another mod would be incompatible with parts of this one is if they make extensive changes to Oblivion's interior cells, which is unlikely.

Future work
In the future, I hope more texts are added. As this is also modder's resource, anyone else is free to do this.  Add your book(s) to the esp and to this readme.  Then, PM me so that I may keep track of the latest version number.
