Books are items crafted from paper and leather. They are used both as an ingredient to craft other items, and as a way to store Enchantments for later use. Books and paper usually appear in chests, inside strongholds. They can also be traded with villagers.

Usage

Currently, books are used for making bookshelves using 6 Wood Planks and 3 books. They can be used to make a

Book and Quill
in which you can write. Books can also be used to make an Enchantment Table, used for Enchanting items.

A book itself can be used as the target of any enchantment. The enchantment will stay with the book until such time that a player wants to use the enchantment on a separate item. The enchantment can be applied from the book, to an item by placing both of them on an anvil. The enchanted book is consumed in the process.

Trivia

  • In earlier versions of Minecraft, books were crafted with only three pieces of paper. However, this recipe still occurs in MCPE.
