The lights are on
Part of the fun in Skyrim is earning your skill points and building a character that you love. However, some people just want to max out their stats as easily of possible. If you fall into that group, you'll be interested in this glitch that allows you to easily bring every skill up to 100.
I came across this tip on a few different message boards, so I decided to try it for myself. You should watch the video below for the full step-by-step walkthrough, but here's short text version.
1. Get the Oghma Infinium book by completing the Hermaeus Mora daedric quest.2. Go to your bookshelf, and with the book in your possession, activate the shelf.3. Instead of storing the book, press the triggers to read it from your menu screen. Choose any of the three paths.4. Back out one screen (to your book inventory), then store the book on the shelf.5. Back out of the menu completely, and target the book on the shelf. Confirm the "Read Oghma Infinium" option.6. Don't actually read it here! when it brings up the paths again, just choose "do not read." Then, just take the book off the shelf.7. Go back to step 2 and repeat as often as desired.
Here's the video (recorded at home, so apologies for the less-than-ideal quality):
Warning: Power-leveling like this can completely ruin the fun of the game. You'll be overpowered, and won't get the satisfaction of earning your abilities. Even so, if you're an achievement farmer (or just want to pump up a new character for a second playthrough), this could be the way to go.

I think I'd use this just for those skills that I don't always try to level like sneak or something like lockpick since to me thats broken in this game.
CHEAAAAP! CHEATERS NEVER PROSPER!!!
OK, so for all you dudes who say you want to do this on your next play through... just start another account on your console and play through... it is not an xbox live game therefore you can play it through on tons of accounts!
WOW.... This is a better glitch than the infinite charm/intimidate in the first mass effect.
I'll use this just to become a tyrannical overlord in my second playthrough :D
Haha, your character's name is Torgo.
I'll do this pass level 50.
The whole point of playing an RPG is leveling stats. Using this cheat is like playing Mortal Kombat and saying "let's just skip the fighting."
maybe on my second playthrough but not my first
Nah....I like the game too much to cheat in it.
Hmm I'll have to do this soon.
I'll try this on my second play through. Just got the game yesterday!!!
"Get the Oghma Infinium book by completing the Hermaeus Mora daedric quest."
Thats...Seriously? I will have to read up on this. Cause...for that guy you had to complete all other Daedric Lord/Goddess Quest to even Approach Hermaeus shrine in Oblivion...don't tell me he is just a simpleton this time around and availible at like level 2-3...
GI should do more of these, but i will not using this on my argonian

Better do it now before a patch comes out and stops this. I like to earn my stuff so i probably wont do this with my already high level character, but i think i might do this for a secondary guy though.
