This mod advances the game clock whenever you read a book equiped from your inventory, the actual time is randomly chosen to be either one, two or three hours. Books activated from the game world will not advance the game clock. This mod simulates the passage of time while reading.
This mod requires Tribunal and Bloodmoon because I have attached the script to every book in the game. Most journals were unaffected, unless the Book Rotate mod added a script to them.
To install the mod, copy the plugin that pertains to your situation and activate via the Data Files menu. Do not use more than one plugin! They all essentially do the same thing and will conflict with each other.
Jac_Passing time while reading.esp - Use this plugin if you do not use Book Rotate.
Jac_Passing time while reading - BR patch.esp - Use this plugin if you only use Book Rotate. The Book Rotate.esm file must be loaded for this one to work.
Jac_Passing time while reading - BRBJ patch.esp - Use this plugin if you use both Book Rotate and Book Jackets. This plugin takes the place of the Book Jackets plugin, but this archive does not contain the Book Jackets icons and mesh files.
4. USING THE MOD
To use the mod, just drop a book from your inventory onto your paper doll avatar like normal. The book will open normaly and the game clock will advance. You can use this in situations where you have to wait, but note that the time advance is random, so keep an eye on the clock.

6. USE IN OTHER MODS
You are free to use this in any other mod, but I request that you give credit to me and to the other authors if you use the Book Rotate script and/or the Book Jackets art resources. Please do not upload this mod to anywhere I do not have access to update the file. Thank you.
Bethesda for making the game.
