In short you can't. A certain rule of thumb might be that the more expensive book, the more likely it is to level you up. No guaranteed approach though. You should just go opening+closing the interesting books

  • It's proven reliable for me as well. I do believe I've come across one expensive book which didn't give me a skill point, but it did give me a quest.

Agree with above most books worth 25+ septums will have a chance at leveling a skill. (this is the same as it was in oblivion although the books tend to be worth less IMO) and it never hurts to try also if your a thief and you know about shadowmarks I have found many marked contain a book
