You need a companion, and then you tell them to pick it up for you. You can then trade with them and get the book without reading it

I think I know even though I don't think I know. I don't think I think.

Easiest way I know of is to get a companion to pick it up, then take it off them.
Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over!

If the book is on a table or something similar, select it and it opens up to read. Press B to close it and put it down.

If it is in a chest, highlight it and press Right to open it. Press B again to close it without taking it.

He wants to take it without opening it, not read it without taking it...
Imagine a perfect, cloudless midnight, cold as winter ice and shrouded in shadow. That is Sithis.

Quickly tap A twice when going to read it, it'll skip right past the book reading part.
Life is an uneasy rollercoaster. It goes up and down, always expect the unexpected.

Yeah, but does that actually prevent learning the skills from skill books? That's the main reason he's asking.

Ah, I thought it was a silly question until you posted this.
