How Do I Add Skill Books To The Library?

-JustAnotherSimsFan reports these shelves do so:
  • The Corral bookshelf (Base-Game)
  • Penningway Bookshelf (Base-Game)
  • The Study Gurdy Bookshelf (Pets)

How To Get All The Recipe Books or Learn All Recipes Options Using DebugEnabler
There are a couple of ways to do this:
Install DebugEnabler

If you want your sim to read the recipes to learn them but do not want to go to the Bookstore to buy all the books do this:
Click on The Bookshelf > NRaas > DebugEnabler > Options for Bookshelf

If you do not want to go through the process of having your sims actually read all the recipe books, he/she can learn all recipes with one click of the button. To do this:
Click on the Refrigerator > NRaas > DebugEnabler > Options for Refrigerator

Cooking - More Food/Ingredient Options and Recipes

How Can I Delete Written Books From The Book Store?

Once WrittenWord is installed, all written books are added to book stores. To delete these books from all book stores, use the following steps:

1. Open the MasterController menu from the City Hall building or map tag or any computer and use the following command:
  • Sim > Advanced > Purge Written Books
  • In the listing, select ALL sims to delete all written books

2. Now you must delete all objects of type 'bookwritten' in the world to fully remove them:
  • In the MasterController menu, select the following:
    • Town > Object Stats > Global > Objects.BookWritten
    • Select "(All: Objects.BookWritten)" and click the checkmark
    • Click the checkmark again to permanently delete all written books

You may need to save and load the world again for the books to be permanently deleted. To be on the safe side, run the Object Stats purge again immediately once the MasterController is active after load.

TIP - Photography Skills - Cameras

I used Kuree's Save Cleaner and my artwork (Photos, Postcards etc.) disappeared!

anchor: [[Skills#SaveCleanerWarning]]

There have been several reports that using Kuree's Save Cleaner may cause problems for some of the challenges and professions by deleting artwork and photo's which in turn can affect skills. For a solution to this problem, please see: Kuree's Save Cleaner.
Other than following the guide provided within the game there are a couple of good resources out there to help you along with the Photography Skill
