Bookshelf is a block added by vanilla Minecraft. There are Natura variants of the bookshelf that takes the coloration of the Wood Planks used to make it. They can be crafted or found in some Villages and Better Dungeons structures.
Bookshelves add power to an Enchantment Table, allowing the player to enchant their items to higher levels and greater strength. Each one adds two levels. With 32 bookshelves, the maximum level of enchanting by Enchanting Plus is 74 levels. 15 bookshelves are enough to get maximum levels for vanilla enchanting, which is 30 levels.
It is possible to get more maximum levels for Enchanting Plus, by using Bookcases instead of bookshelves.
- Breaking a Bookshelf yields three books but no wood planks. (Silk Touch enchantment works on this)
- Placing something between a Bookshelf and the Enchantment Table will 'block' it's effect.
- Bookcases are an expensive but more potent alternative to powering an enchantment table.
