I like reading too.
Like I said, BG 1+2 were perfectly fine.

One of my problems is that many new games are released without having a manual as good as the one of BG.
When you get a game with complex rules the devs should also give you a manual that explaines these rules.
The devs of PK have said that they wanted to improve on how they explain the rules to the player in their next game.

As for use any item: I have finished ToB with a thief holding blackrazor on one hand and crom fayr in the off hand, together with gloves that give more attacks per round.
But spike traps killed everything anyway.
