Books are items in Minecraft that serve little purpose. They are crafted from 1 Leather and 3 Paper. Books can be used in only three crafting recipes, but can be very useful in these.
- When put above 4 Obsidian and 2 Diamonds in a crafting table, it makes 1 Enchantment Table.
- When three are sandwiched between 6 Wooden Planks, they make 1 Bookshelf.
- When they are put in a crafting grid with 1 Ink Sac and 1 Feather, they make 1 Book and Quill, an editable book allowing the player to write text as well as sign it and give it to friends or trade with a villager.
- Books, Paper and Bowls are the only Raw Materials items that must be crafted. Sticks and Sugar may be crafted, but they also drop from Witches.
