The land of Ancaria has many writers, poets, and artists. Their work can be seen within the pages of Books that conquered enemies will leave behind as lucky spoils for fortunate victors. The books will not, as yet, enhance or give a character any known game-playing benefits. The knowledge in these books range from recipes on how to construct a perfect llama goulash, as to why smelling proper while hunting is important. Delightful glimpses into the history of Ancaria and advice offered on skilled spell-casting, the story of T-Energy, and how to set a proper table for Orcs are all a part of this world's literary heritage.

How to read books
Books will show up within a player's inventory which can be accessed by pressing the "F" key. Right-clicking any book found within the inventory will then add that book to a player's list of "read" books. Pressing "L" next will open up the player's logbook, and clicking the "book" tab at the top will display all of the "read" books. (Console version: from the player's Quest Log, pressing a trigger button will change to the Books section.)
The list of books the player has "read" will now display along the left with subtitled categories of books listed in yellow. Clicking any title will have its contents displayed along the right as in the example shown, Orcish Cooking.
