Crusty Old Meatwad (he/him)
If you get them just before the big bad battle, that's the perfect time for this particular subclass. ONLY this subclass could copy them for use in time for that big battle. All others would need a lot of downtme to do it.Funny you should mention lmop because one of the quests in it is to go see someone & trade for a spellbook on behalf of the questgiver npc.

oops... There are scrolls of augury, charm person, & fireball...
From memory... stk & CoS have spellbook(s) but not until basically the very end & few if any scrolls. That's the other problem though, if you get a spellbook a couple sessions before gearing up to fight the bbeg & end the campaign or worse after you beat the bbeg... The campaign is wrapping up or actually over so what good does it do the wizard?. You could point at how a lot of HCs have lvery rare, legendary, & artifact class stuff for martials to find at that point in the campaign too... but it's absurd to suggest that a spellbook falls into a similar value
You have, still, not demonstrated your claim that hardcovers don't have spellbooks. Over and over again I and others have demonstrated where you're wrong. So I am waiting for you to offer the tiniest shred of evidence, beyond your blanket statement that it's fact, that what you're saying is actually fact.
Why should people keep trying to disprove your claim if all you do is handwaive it and never come back with evidence in return? You, again, don't seem interested in a conversation.
How about you name four hardcover adventure paths which have no spellbooks in them?
