Enchanted Books usually play a big part in most Minecraft playthroughs. Players can potentially discover some of the best enchantments in the game from these books.

Due to their ability to be found in various ways, players of any play style can find Enchanted Books. They also have the fantastic potential to be combined at an Anvil, creating solid enchantment combinations.

Usage

Players can use Enchanted Books to upgrade their most useful tools, weapons, and armor.

When a tool, weapon, or armor is combined with an Enchanted Book at an Anvil, (shown above) players will be able to spend some of their Experience levels to enchant this item.

This is extremely useful as players may not want the random Enchantment chosen at the Enchanting Table. Instead, players can either search for Enchanted Books in the locations listed above or enchant a bunch of regular books until they get the desired Enchantment.

Players can also combine multiple books at an Anvil (shown above) to combine the two enchantments into one book. Two books of the same type and level can also be combined, which will add the two levels. Players who hoard Enchanted Books of the same type can save space this way.
