Enchanted Books are magical items that were added in the 1.4.6 update. An enchanted book can be obtained by placing a book in an Enchantment Table. Enchanted books can be looted from dungeons, Desert Temples, and abandoned mine shafts. Enchanted books can only be applied through the use of an anvil. Enchanted books can be used on any item. However, any projectiles other than arrows, snowballs, and eggs will not have any effect when thrown. Enchanted Books can also be found from Fishing.

The enchanted book allows for many enchantments to be added to tools that under normal circumstances cannot have that enchantment. For example, no matter how many times a sword is enchanted, it will never get the Unbreaking enchantment. However, it is possible to get the Unbreaking enchantment onto the sword through a book with Unbreaking in an anvil interface.


  • In the PS3 edition's creative mode, all enchanted books obtained from the creative mode interface are at the maximum level for the enchantment.
