Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements


Read 50 books.  

Books can be found on shelves in buildings just about anywhere, look for highlighted bookcases to find books for you to read. You can also hit to inspect the book then again to read it to avoid having to steal it.

If you need a quick cache of books, head to the Luminary Leaf in Rathir. You can purchase 17 books there to read. There are also 9 to be found in the House of Valor (DLC).

@#2 Any books will do. You can actually read books from their container by pressing x to inspect them and then x again to read, this helps for books that you would normally have to steal.

The place Osckosh is talking about is The Luminary Leaf in the city of Rathir-Lower City. the merchant had 17 books for me. Btw Osckosh are you from Wisconsin?

In this shop are also bookshelves with a few books which the merchant doesn't sell, just read them you don't have to steal them.

In the Dead Kel DLC you find books left and frigging right. This should make this achievement much easier to complete. You should get the DLC, it's pretty awesome!!

Thanks everyone who helped, especially that dude that mentioned Rathir Luminary Leaf. You can buy all his books, read them or even inspect then read the ones on the shelves.
