Alright, got the 'you need a new bookcase' bug too now. Had to sell ALL bookcases on the lot before reading to child worked again. (It's a household with four adults and two kids, and not one adult could read to any of the kids before I sold the bookcases)

@MeltingPenguins It's okay, you can also buy a new book instead of a whole bookcase lmao. You still won't be able to read the other ones but at least you have one to read.

@MeltingPenguins Did the book become unowned for you ? Do you still have a save from before you sold everything ?

I have a save from afterwards, I think, but that won't do, will it?

And i dunno if the book became unowned. I tried it via Open Bookcase and dragged a book from there unto the coffeetable, had an adult and the child sit on the couch and clicked the book with the adult. The option wasn't there until I sold all other bookcases. (it worked for the first book for the aspiration, but the second had this problem)

@MeltingPenguins Yeah, would need one from before. I take it the automatic backups are also already overwritten ?

Is it possible that your sim sticky-fingered books from vacation and that's why they don't work at home?  I realized recently that my Sims had plundered the bookshelf of their favorite Selvadoradan vacation rental, leaving it with a single book.  I'd previously noticed they had extra books and that some of the duplicate books didn't work for "read to child."
