    Am I the only one who ALWAYS wants to flip pages in books with the opposite direction on the joy stick? It feels more natural for me to push the stick left. Discuss.

    I don't read the books in game, I just collect them all and then read them on my Kindle. But, I can see where you're coming from.

    I like the multiple-paged pieces of paper you find lying around. Truly magical.

    Never really thought about that. I always push the stick to the right. That feels more natural to me.

    I tend to flick with the right stick, you know the thumb that would turn the actual page

    I just tap A to open the book, and then press B to close it after I gain a skill point, or not...

    Totally racist! On my way to the magic college I stayed at an inn where the inn-keeper told me about an Orc who's paid up for months in advance to stay at the inn and read books. 
     
    On that fateful night I realized that orcs are people, too.

    @Xanadu:

    Throw every single book you have out of a window that made you used to the "real-life flipping". THIS ARE VIDEO GAMES!

    @AhmadMetallic: I'm not racist, I was just stating that as an orc I would not be able to read books because of my infant like IQ, and they should also have their own schools and I don't want them using the same drinking fountains as us.... Now THAT'S racist.
