Minecraft: How to Make a Bookshelf

In Minecraft for the PC, bookshelves used to be just for decoration, but now they are used to power up enchantment tables to make them more powerful.

Making a bookshelf can be rather time consuming, since you’ll need three books for each bookshelf.

Instead of making books, If you can find a village that has a library you can destroy the bookshelves to get three books each.

To make a bookshelf, place three books and six wooden planks into the crafting table like the picture shows below.
