There is a glitch for free specialization tomes... save just before you speak to the merchant to buy the tome and as soon as it says specialization unlocked, load the save game... you'll not lose any money, the specialization will still be there and the book missing in the merchants inventory.

Yeah, Carnage SiTe is right. I've saved over 100 sovreighns in Awakening for
way more fair and important things to spend my money on, like the keep itself,
rather than buying 6 books, that are priced at 15 sovrighns each that teach you
specializations that you should be able to get by forming relationships with
people. this glitch is an acceptable glitch to me, I hope people use it.
money is crucial in Awakening.
