Read and Sleep Rebalanced



This mod is an overhaul for reading and sleeping. It also fixes the perk Cushion which doesn’t double the reading bonus if you’re sitting comfortably in the vanilla game.

  • Reduced the weight of books, treasure maps, contracts, notes, and skill books
  • Benches doesn’t give more sleeping bonus then beds.
  • Adjusted reading bonus for all reading areas (the perk gives highest bonus not the bed)
  • The perk Cushion now doubles the reading bonus as expected
  • Traveling traders and beggars now sell all treasure maps (except the DLC related ones) and skill books
  • English and German Localization included


It’s recommended to use Vortex Mod Manger with hard link deployment for installation. All mods are optimized for this purpose.

  • Save the file to your desktop or your preferred location for downloaded files.
  • Start Vortex Mod Manger and choose MODS in the menu on the left.
  • Click on the button install file.
  • Choose the downloaded Zip file when prompted.

If Vortex Mod Manger is properly configured, you have completed the installation. No further steps required.

If you need help with the mod manager visit the Nexus Mods Discord.
