I just got an Elder Scroll while doing the quest "Elder Knowledge", and I wanted to know if there are any effects to reading an Elder Scroll?

Yes, you will be stunned and blinded for a few seconds upon reading it. If you read it at the Throat of the World, however, something interesting will happen.

    Also, though this is not directly relevant to the question, you can sell the scroll to a certain orc librarian at the College of Winterhold after the interesting thing has happened.

    And if you have Dawnguard, you can sell it to the moth priest and he'll give you more gold than the orc at the College Library.
