After completing the deadric quest "Discerning the Transmundane" you obtain a skill book called Oghma Infinium. This is a skill book and gives +5/+4 to particular skills depending on which path you choose when reading the book.

The book is only allowed to read once (unless a glitch is exploited), but I noticed when I read the book (which was only once) the total number of skills books I have read did not go up. This therefore did not count towards the "Reader" achievement. Why isn't this book considered a skill book?

The only books that count towards the reader achievements are the +1 to skill books.

The Oghma Infinium, even though its technically a book, is a special case as its also a daedric artifact and thus doesn't fall under that category.
