Sellable Novels

Sim-written novels made in Free Time can be placed on OFB shelves and marked as "for sale" on OFB business lots, creating a convenient way to distribute the novel to the rest of the hood. They cost about the same amount as a regular book sold off of a bookshelf that is marked as for sale, and restock like buy mode items (money disappears from the family funds, new novel appears on the shelf). Unfortunately, when they restock they show up standing upright on their bindings and are all called "Book Title", however, when they are bought they have the correct title and are functionally equivalent to the original novel (including having the correct contents).

This might conflict with hacks that modify sim-written novels (such as hacks that allow you to write pre-Free Time novels in Free Time, for example). It modifies the novel OBJD and its Function - Init BHAV, in group 0x7F1B0FBB.

You need both OFB and Free Time to use this hack. It probably will not work with pre-Free Time novels, but I haven't actually tried it.

Note: Bookstores are not really profitable, so you probably want to sell something else on the lot as well.
