Yeah, I'm pretty much dredging up old threads in this forum right now.


There are lots of good books in TES. My favorites are 2920, The Real Barenziah, A Game at Dinner, and (when I feel like delving into something confusing), the 36 Lessons.

Another one that no one else has listed but I happen to be really partial to is The Story of Aevar Stone-Singer. I like it because it's simple, yet carries a mythic quality to it. It uses parallel structure, which is one of my favorite literary devices. It also doesn't overstay its welcome.

I forgot the name of the book, but it was about a girl, a thief in Balmora who was known as Chance. 'twas in Morrowind. Really good story in my opinion.

One of my favorites was the Poison Song series. I never actually found all the books but I went to The Imperial Library and read it all the way through. Those Dagoth House people are truly crazy!

Ius, Animal God <3 My brother and I nearly pulled something laughing at that when we were younger. Daggerfall had the best books.

I also liked On Lycanthropy, The Asylum Ball, and The Arrowshot Woman.

Now that I really think about it, my favorite book was "The Rear Guard". No morbid crap, no twists [well... no morbid twists at the end, at least], nothing but One-Bosmer-Army, defeating entire armies one apple at a time.

Immortal Blood by:Annonymus

I'm not sure who wrote the book, but it's very interesting.

The thief of virtue

I like it

Purloined shadows

It seems to be about how the gray fox got the cowl. I find it investing.

The woddcutter's wife

I like horror stories

The Cabin in the woods

I like horror stories biggrin.gif

For the first time in Oblivion I've managed to acquire Black Arrow Vol 1 and 2. Great books with thrilling story, especially the 2nd volume.

And yet I am, and liveā€”like vapours tossed.
I long for scenes where man hath never trod

There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass belowā€”above the vaulted sky.ā€¯
