Enchantment Tables are very useful items in Minecraft. They used to enchant items, which makes them have special effects (such as knocking enemies away or mining blocks faster). Enchantment Tables cost Experience to enchant items. After 1.8, enchanting was changed, so that Lapis Lazuli is now required to enchant items, and when hovering over the enchantment, you can see what 1 of the enchantments will be, whereas before it was completely random.
When Bookshelves are placed around an Enchantment Table with 1 block of Air between them, they increase the strength and cost of enchantments. The minimum amount of Bookshelves needed to reach the level cap (30) is 15.
