So, I've started collecting books, but it's super difficult to place them neatly in a bookshelf because there seems to be some kind of magnetism on the books and other objects.  Books will cling or jump to various objects and other books, and spin on various axis (uncontrollably to me).  Is there a setting I can change or a command?

More info please because obviously I'm missing something important, or not met a condition, as I see no prompt to place books and holding them near a shelf doesn't do anything.

Perhaps because I don't own a home so the bookshelves are not mine?  I decided to use the home of one of my dead followers until the Jarl says otherwise or I'm kicked out.

The effect doesn't apply only to books though, but every item or many many items it seems, where there is some kind of magnetism making placing or manipulating/rotating items difficult.

Maybe the effect happens in some instances and not others?  Eg. I noticed that in Markarth's apothecary a difference to other shops I've been in so far, in that items that were on display disappeared when I purchased all the items from the vendor's list, whereas other shops with items on display remained on display leaving only the option to steal them if I wanted them as they were not representative of the vendor's inventory stock of for sale items.

You cannot go storing stuff in your dead follower's house. The game will reset the cell after a period of time, and you will lose all your stuff. You can only put books on shelves that have the necessary bookshelf functions attached to them. This is a game, not real life. You cannot stack things around your house like in real life. The game simply does not support this functionality.

Vendor's inventory has no relevancy with the items displayed in their store. Again, this is a game, and it is not designed that way.

Oh, thank you.  I will hopefully find my things and remove them before any house reset.

I couldn't figure out why I was given an inheritance note from the Jarl (or how the Jarl was so quickly informed of the death...), so I thought maybe I could work something with the house.

Also, is there a standard time for all cells to reset or different times for different cells?  I think using that time for temporary storage might be a useful strategy for me for now.

Items are still there, I guess saves can also act as a precaution for cell resets.  I have now 3300 overencumbrance...

I did notice that sleeping in the follower's house didn't work as well as at an inn, often not getting the well rested state.

your items are recorded in your saves, since it's a snapshot in time ... I think if you remove a mod that adds a new item, a corresponding save could become corrupt though.

      ENB makes my character's skin look really really pale and kind of makes the entire game look cold.  Which settings would I be looking at to make the colors a little warmer?

      I see in the guide it says to install LW dawnbreaker with dwarven/dwemer sheath but for the enb light installation instructions is says to choose default dawnbraker sheath and not alt sheath...I was just wondering why that may be.

      The vanilla cotton plant is modeled somewhat after a flowering commercial cotton plant: Google Images of cotton plants
      Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim depicts it after the tundra cotton plant, which is more like a grass. Google Images of tundra cotton
      This mod blends the two, giving it the leaves of a commercial cotton plant and the flower of a tundra cotton plant.
      I consider this a significant deviation from vanilla, so I would not recommend for Step, but it looks fantastic.
      Compares:
      Vanilla --> Cathedral Plants --> Hybrid's HD Plants --> Cathedral - 3D Tundra Cotton
