Just gone to university? Living in an eco-commune squatted in a Port Promise warehouse? Joined a secret club, which meets in cafes to talk about progress and collective struggle? Opening a bookshop dedicated to spreading the revolutionary ideal - with a hidden door, leading to a basement filled with subversive materials?
 
Then you probably need some new books!
 
Rebel Books: Series 1 is a collection of 11 readable books for Sim insurrectionists, radicals, and troublesome thinkers.
 
Each book comes with:
  • A quote from the book as a description
  • A custom thought balloon
  • A cover, either replicating the best-known edition in Simlish, or of my own design.
  • Books are a little cheaper than their EA equivalents, because they have been published by a revolutionary press intending to distribute them affordably.
 

Sims of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains!

Skill Books

Gardening
A Declaration from the Poor Oppressed People of England (1649) - Gerrard Winstanley
 
Baking (GET TO WORK EP)
The Conquest of Bread (1892) - Peter Kropotkin
 
Mischief
The Anarchist Cookbook (1971) - William Powell
 
Charisma
Are Prisons Obsolete (1981) - Angela Y. Davis
The Communist Manifesto (1848) - Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels
 
Cooking

Recettes de La Marmite (1871) - Eugène Varlin
(My friend requested a book relating to the Paris Commune, so this is an imagined book by one of the participants - who was a bookbinder! - and ran a co-op restaurant which distributed food to those in need)

Emotion Books
 
Confident
Whipping Girl (2007) - Julia Serano
What White People Can Do Next (2021) - Emma Dabiri
 
Sad
Capitalist Realism (2009) - Mark Fisher
 
Inspired
Acid Communism - Mark Fisher
(unpublished at the time of Fisher’s death, but this is my imaginary world, so I’m going to make it the way I want it. This book is very expensive because it has been taken from a parallel dimension in which it exists.)

General Books
 
Les Miserables (1862) - Victor Hugo
 
Sociology Bookcases

 
To accompany my Rebel Books: Series 1 readable books, I wanted a set of bookcases which would place the books in the library. A second package contains library bookcases for Willow Creek, Britchester and Windenberg libraries. Just delete one bookcase from the library of your choice, and place a matching bookcase in its place.
 
BASEGAME: Willow Creek
Library Bookcase > Library Case: Sociology ($300)
 
UNIVERSITY: Laurel Library
Mortimer’s Secret Bookcase > Secrets Case: Sociology ($1900)
 
GET TOGETHER: Quad Manor
Endless Wonder on a Shelf > Wonder Case: Sociology ($1700)

HOW TO USE
Just delete one of the library bookcases and put in the matching CC equivalent. This will add the Rebel Books S1 to the library’s inventory. They will be available from all shelves, and NPCs will autonomously take them and read them.
 
(Which is pretty neat, although honestly it works a lot better for the University library than for Willow Creek which is, surely, too provincial to have such a well-stocked radical literature shelf? Maybe Willow Creek Library has one particular librarian who keeps ordering them…additionally, and unfathomably, the Quad Manor bookcases can't be found in the catalogue in a colour that matches. So these are close but not perfect; if anyone can solve this for me, I'll do an update)

Thanks to MizoreYukii for help with editing the missing textures, although ultimately I decided to go with no decoration on the shelves.
