I go all the way to winterhold to sell books. I ugh, stole a lot of books.

No merchants are willing to buy it.

So I should just drop the books?

    The problem is that they’re stolen. Lots of merchants buy books. – Lord Harkon Dec 18 '16 at 23:41

There are a few ways you can sell books:

  1. Urag at the College of Winterhold (which you already know about).
  2. Selling books to a fence (requires some progress in the Thieves' Guild questline - fences will buy anything, even if it's stolen).
  3. Getting the Merchant and Fence perks in the Speech tree. Merchant allows you to sell any item to any merchant. Fence allows you to even sell stolen items to merchants that aren't normally fences.
  • Just curious. How the hell those merchant knows the books are stolen anyway? – user4951 May 20 '20 at 9:29
