I was going to change the game setting for books depending on what wasteland you're in, but that is too easily exploited by not using the books and just taking them all to NV and then using them. The books with the perks from OWB are still there and you can max your skills that way too provided you have enough wonderglue to do so. In this particular case I can't make it work both ways without creating another set of books that is scripted which I just don't want to do because it causes other problems and creates more incompatibilities. Also you can still max all your stats (even with Big Guns re-enabled) with the books as they are and using the appropriate perks.
Sometimes we just have to make compromises that affect NV even if undesirable. From a player perspective Risewild is completely correct in that removing the books and replacing them with magazines detracts from the allure of exploring areas as the rewards for doing so are removed. This is something that Fallout 4 did in it's design with the legendary system instead of unique items and it just doesn't work on several levels.
