Reading a book in the Sims 3

This Sims 3 Guide was originally written for the PC and Mac versions of the game, but also will help owners of the console versions - PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Please remember some info or numbers may have changed.

This is a list of all book types that authors can write in the Sims 3. Use it to help choose what types of books to write to maximize your profit. For example, books like dramas can take a long time to write, yet provide relatively low profit from royalty checks compared to books of similar size. In the table, look to the profitability column for my rating of how much profit you get per page out of a book type.
