Bookshelves are useful for enchanting items. If there are bookshelves bordering an enchantment table, at least one space away, and sacked up to at least two spaces high, you will have a better chance of getting a good enchantment. You need fifteen bookshelves for the best enchantment, which requires 45 books and 90 planks, or 135 paper, 45 leather and 22.5 logs. Bookshelves spawn naturally in libraries of strongholds and in NPC villages. Three books and six oak wood planks, jungle wood planks, spruce wood planks, or birch wood planks are needed to craft a bookshelf. Three planks go on the top row, the three books go in the middle row, and the bottom row of the crafting table is filled with wood planks of the player's choice.
