First something from my own experience:
Paladins do find more spellbooks than fighters and certainly more than barbarians.Wizards,priests and necromancers finds alot of them(i think druids are on par with them).I also think that class is alot more important than race or stats,for example my DE archer with great magic skills(concentration 100% LE25 etc.)sucks at learning even light spell while orcish paladin dumba$$ learns it with no problem.What about other classes?Merchant,elementalist...If you know then plese tell me because i got tired of barbs and wizzies.

I don't believe elementalists learn any spells. I played with just about every race and class like probably everyone else here and elementalists have power/magic within themselves already and don't actually "learn" a particular spell until they reach a certain level. Likewise, mindcrafters use their mental powers as magic and learn spells as they grow in level. In fact I believe attempting to learn spells with a mindcrafter may hurt the mindcrafter, but I'm not too sure on that one.

What exactly is your question? Each class has it's own % chances to learn spells, which can be increased through stats like learning and willpower (and lucky/fate smiles too I think) and the skills Literacy and Concentration. Unless you desperately need a spell, I recommend waiting until both are at 100 to try. Also there is a special room to help increase the chances - something like "The walls of this room are lined with books" you'll get that message when entering.

General rule is, the more melee fighting oriented a class is, the worse they'll be at learning spells. With notable exceptions of paladin and monk. Best at learning spells are Wizard, Druid, Priest, Necromancer. They find more books too, on average. Worst are Beastfighers, Fighters, Weaponsmiths, Assassins, Thieves.

Different classes do have different penalties on learning spells.
Your archer is actually better off than a farmer or elementalist.

Wiz, druid, priest, and necro find 10x more books.
Paladins find 4x more books.
I think everyone else is the same, although I might be forgetting a class.

Lurker here.

I do know that mindcrafters have a special penalty when it comes to books.

They actually are incapable of mastering a new spell using a book. They can only book-cast or increase their knowledge of spells already known (which has to be done with potions/wands of wonder).
