This is a minor thing that's never really been at the forefront of my mind, but still worth mentioning.
When I pick up or come across anything with writing on it (sign/letter/notice/book/spellbook/memo/diary/etc.) I'm never quite sure if I should "Use" it or "Look" at it to read it.
Usually I try both.
I'm aware that with some signs or notices you can look at them, but can only read them if you're close to them. With most of the others, I'm not sure.
Somtimes you "look" at something and text appears in the console, other times you "use" something and the screen displays the text. It's not always clear which is which.
We should either define a convention for it ("use" always reads, "look" always describes for example), or make a fundamental change to the engine, such as adding a "Read" action.
