I'm not learning a skill from reading a book on Bow or Prepare Foods. (Indeed, I read three books on the latter skill, although two of them didn't cost anything.) Bugs? Or aren't these skills implemented yet?
I just bought the game. I really like the idea behind it, if it gets finished. (More like alpha than beta, isn't it? Lots of bugs, certainly. But I knew that before I bought it.)
BTW, I'd say the game economy needs some work. A boot costs 1 coin. So does an arrow or a piece of armor. Weapons cost a handful, at most, and books from a bookcase cost five. However, books at the library costs thousands of coins. It's not a problem, because I pretty much just started and I've already got nearly 100,000 coins. And yet my character is worried about money. Weird, isn't it?
