Books are simple to make, but the ingredients can be frustrating to track down. Once you have the materials, it's easy to set up your own farm so you never run out of paper and leather. Now let's get started so you can start planning out the library.

How to craft a Book in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3x3 crafting grid that looks like this:

2. Add Items to make a Book

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3x3 crafting grid. To make a book, place 3 papers and 1 leather in the 3x3 crafting grid.
When making a book, it is important that the papers and leather are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 paper in the first box and 1 paper in the second box. In the second row, there should be 1 paper in the first box and 1 leather in the second box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a book.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the book will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Book to Inventory

Once you have crafted a book, you need to move the new item to your inventory.
Congratulations, you have made a book in Minecraft!

  1. 1
    Gather sugar cane. Sugar cane is a green reed that grows near bodies of water. It can be difficult to find on some worlds, but if you follow a coastline you should come across it. Break it with your bare hands or any tool to pick it up.
    • Sugar cane does not grow next to frozen water. Look for it in warm biomes.

  2. 2
    Start a sugar cane farm (recommended). Since sugar cane can be annoying to find, save some to plant before you turn it all into paper. Placing a piece of sugar cane on the ground will plant it, but it will only grow taller in the following conditions:
    • It must be planted on dirt, sand, grass, or podzol.[1]
    • There must be at least one water block adjacent to the ground it is planted on.
    • Note — to harvest the cane, just wait until it grows taller and break the top blocks. If you leave the lowest cane block it will keep growing.

  3. 3
    Turn three cane into paper. Fill one row of a crafting table with sugar cane (three in total). This makes three sheets of paper, which is enough to make one book.

  4. 4
    Hunt for leather. Cows are usually not difficult to find, while horses spawn only in plains or savannah. Each one killed will drop 0 to 2 units of leather.[2] You'll need one piece of leather for each book.
    • You can also make leather out of four rabbit hides, or find it occasionally by fishing.
    • If you want a steady source of leather, grow wheat and use the harvested stalks to lure cows into an enclosure. Offer a pair of cows more wheat to breed them whenever you're getting low on animals.
  5. 5
    Combine paper and leather to make a book. Place leather in one square and paper in three squares, anywhere in the crafting area. This makes one book.
