Just bought and looks great over all. I would like to suggest bookmarks, they make life easier on PCs and they're easy to implement.

Bought this a while back and i just finished reading recently. This truly is another must-have book with reasonable price!
Materials created by these people are absolute must have if you want to save time (like me and people out there who are extremely busy with life) and whip out not abundant of inspiring, quality and detailed content.
Candlekeep's tome of books will not disappoint you!! Keep it up and don't stop playing DnD!

I was on the fence until I saw "Fire, Walk with Me," and I know I will never be able to sleep not knowing what that book is. Guess I'm buying it.

Is there any reason that this HAS to be a Candlekeep resource? I mean.. it looks relatively benign from your preview. Is there any reason I couldn't use it as a resource in some old Waterdeep campaigns (or whatever), or does it actually have some newer Candlekeep based resources or something?

The book takes its title from an interview we did with some Avowed of Candlekeep, but you can easily use it in any Realms campaign

Absolutely worth the price, a collection of fun books where you'll find at least a few that can be useful in any game run in the Realms, or even other settings.
It's nice to have the possible mechanics for your PC's for reading the books as well as the collection of magical books of varying power.
At the least, it should help inspire you to make up a collection of books for yourself :)

A few of these books require attunement and also for the book to be destroyed upon their 'use'

Do they maintain the attunement slot once destroyed?

No, they don't

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
