I couldn't understand why the Spa workers could hold and read the Spa magazines without issue but when regular Sims tried, they would handle the book as if it was a thick book and it would stretch in their hands when opened.
It turns out that the Sims Team have got some of the tuning for thin books wrong and listed them as regular books in the game code instead.
Books in The Sims 4 can either be thick books or thin books. They are referred to in the coding as "book" or "bookThin" respectively. For most of the thin books in the game, the development team have forgotten to set the value to "bookThin" and instead left it as "book." This has the effect of making thin books stretch to the dimensions of a thick book when opened and read, as well as meaning that Sims use the wrong hand carry pose.
This fix overrides the affected tuning to correct these mistakes. There are 14 tuning overrides in all, listed below.
