Fredas, 21st of Last Seed, 4E 201 -
It's been a rough week. Day in and day out I've walked the mountains around Riverwood, collecting all the ingredients I could ... killing all the game available. For days I've gone up and down the river, catching fish and avoiding wolf packs. All of this only to return to Riverwood each night and sell my meager collection of pelts and flowers for bits of gold ... most of which then went to the innkeep for a bed for the night.
But after days and days of hard work, I finally saved up enough gold to purchase a pair of hide boots and an old iron mace. My knuckles are sore from pounding on the ribs of elk and the skulls of wolves. The soles of my feet are raw from the wretched wraps I've had to wear. To put on a real pair of boots was divine, and holding the mace in my hand lifted my spirits like nothing else.
(NOTE: Confirmed working on latest update with Dragonborn DLC on Xbox 360, as of 1/02/13 with Breezehome bookshelf) . Confirmed working as of latest update 18.104.22.168.7 11/16/12. Check done in Lakeview Manor. May or may not work on bookshelfs in Breezehome.(Confirmed 12/27/12 that bookshelfs in Breezehome work)
It is possible to level up all skills to 100 with the Oghma Infinium by using the Oghma Infinium more than once. An exploit must be performed for this to work:
Activate a bookshelf.
Read the book whilst still in the bookshelf inventory; choose the desired path.
Close the book after having chosen the path, then place the book on the bookshelf WITHOUT exiting the bookshelf inventory between reading the chosen path and placing the book on the shelf.
Now exit the bookshelf inventory; the book should appear on the bookshelf.
Activate the book directly, not through the bookshelf inventory. Choose the "do not read" option then take the book from the shelf.
This can be repeated as many times as desired to get all skills to 100.
It is a good idea to save often while doing this exploit in case a mistake is made and the book is lost.
There is a chance the book will be duplicated while taking from the bookshelf, the clone can also raise skills.
Each cycle of taking the Oghma Infinium from the bookshelf seems to increase the number of books that can be stored in the shelf by one more book per cycle. For example, if the exploit is started on a full book shelf, after five cycles of reading the book, the bookshelf will indicate that the player can store "5 more" books on the shelf.

I started out as a one handed sheild wielder.
I then turned my sights on all things magic.
CLose wounds is the best healing spell I have come across and it works perfectly for me.
Fire bolt (duel shot) is taking down the enemies easily enough in most places.
If need be I pull out my orcish shield and Dawnbeaker Sword.
I don't like staffs but do use one on a semi regular basis, "The Wobbajack" it can do almost anything to the enemy and at random too.
I use Savos Arens amulet, Arch mages robes, I interchange a couple of rings and use my Wolf Boots and thieves guild gloves that I leveled up (though I wish I leveled up the main armor piece for extra carrying space).
I have 3 bound weapons that I use, Sword, Bow and Battleaxe, with the perk to make these stonger they do quite well, esecially Sword and close wounds combo, with a little flame cloak and Stoneflesh.

2. Get invisibility & double backstab damage gloves from dark brotherhood quests
3. One-shot everything without even using any kind of exploit or cheat
4. Realize game isn't fun
5. Do alchemy/enchanting glitch and permanently give yourself millions of health and magicka
6. Realize game is even less fun
7. Find something else to do
It was just too repetitive and boring. I don't see why everyone is obsessed with it. I've played better rpgs.
