What do mabinovel collection books do?

I talked to Sinead at Rath Royal Castle and noticed that she could give me two mabinovel books, one called return of the hero, the other called sword of the gods. What can you do with these two items? There is no "read" option, just "pick up" and "drop."

    They give you NPCs and backgrounds to use while writing MabiNovels.

    If you like writing fanfiction and want to publish in-game, give it a go. The interface is a bit clunky to use though. (I don't write fanfiction, I used it to publish my lasagna recipe.)

    You pretty much have fun making your own short stories. The books help you get additional characters and scenery's to use. If you do....don't forget to do the mabi novel quest to obtain the bag to hold all the books. Not sure if you can re-obtain certain books again or not. I haven't tried it out since I lack inventory space.

    so do you have to write the mabinovel with those books in your inv to have access to those additions, or can you just drop the books after you've obtained them?

    You need to have the book in your inventory. If you drop it; you'll lose what it adds.

    The only books you can't replace if you toss them are the ones from past events.
    Right now I think it's just the Memorial Collection Book, Event Collection Book, and the Fate/stay night (UBW) Collection Book.
    (And the Little Ghost Collection Book if you bought one from a William Partner and then decided to delete him for some reason)

    The rest can either be bought again or, if given for free from the NPC dialogue option, the option will reappear if you don't have a copy of the collection book in your inventory.
