First Appearance

Update 0.2.1

A Bookshelf is a Block that was added in Update 0.2.1.

Obtaining

Bookshelves can be Crafted or naturally found in Libraries in some Strongholds and Villages. After Update 1.0.4, Bookshelves can also be Traded for using Emeralds.

Crafting

Note: The type of Wooden Plank has no effect on crafting. All types of planks work and all Bookshelves look the same.

Usage

Bookshelves are used to increase level of enchantments when surrounding an Enchantment Table. They are also used as decorative blocks.

Trivia

  • 15 Bookshelves are required in order to receive the highest Enchantments.
  • When Enchanting, a Bookshelf can be blocked by a Torch, changing the Enchantment outputs.
  • When destroyed, the Bookshelf returns only the Books, losing the Wooden Planks used to make it.
    • However, before Update 0.3.0, destroying one Bookshelf would yield three new Bookshelves instead of three Books.
  • To get the Block itself, the Player must use Silk Touch Enchanted Tools.
  • When used to enhance an Enchantment Table, letters appear to be drawn from the Bookshelves and into the Enchantment Table.
  • The texture of the top and bottom of the Bookshelf Block is the same as that of Oak Planks.
  • Bookshelves can be used as Fuel in a Furnace.
