Stormcloak’s recruitment essay calling for rebellion against the Empire

You were born into tumultuous times Dovahkiin. The ancient province of Skyrim finds itself torn asunder by civil war, born of banning the worship of Talos. Imperial Loyalists and Stormcloaks like this book’s author vie for the hearts and minds of all Nords, and indeed citizens from across the Empire. You will be swept up in this conflict should you spend any time at all in this province. Which side will you choose?

Fall from Glory
by Nithilis Lidari
Theories on the weakening of the Skyrim Thieves Guild

Nithilis is bold, and dedicated to his task of uncovering the truth behind the decline of the Thieves Guild in Skyrim. Judging by the lack of a sequel to this work, it may be assumed that the Thieves Guild did not want known the reasons for their reduction in power and influence. A curious Dragonborn may consider making the journey to Riften, and seeking to contact the Thieves Guild in order to solve the mystery themselves.

A brief history of the Dark Brotherhood

Risking life and limb to bring you this account, Pellarne Assi peels back the not so shrouded veil that surrounds the assassin guild known as the Dark Brotherhood. Any Dragonborn who rises too high in Skyrim would do well to look over their shoulder from time to time, and regardless of their station, be wary of earning the hatred of these servants of the Night Mother.

The public manifesto of the Khajiit organization Renrijra Krin

While ostensibly a short description of the goals and practices of the Renrijra Krin, the keen minded Dragonborn will also find much insight into the inner workings of the Khajiiti themselves by taking the time to peruse this tome.

Pension of the Ancestor Moth
A Temple novice’s initiatory pamphlet on the Order of the Ancestor Moth

A recruitment document circulated by The Order of the Ancestor Moth, promising the potential new member such wonderful opportunities as mastering vaguely described fighting techniques, reading magical objects until you go blind, and living out your dying days singing to butterflies.

Any Dragonborn who does not cast this handbill aside immediately will at least be rewarded with a greater understanding of how the Elder Scrolls are researched, and the lives of those who do so.
