TypeSolid block

The Bookcase is a decorative block added by BiblioCraft, which is used to store books. The books that can be stored include:

  • Any Written Book
  • Any Enchanted Book
  • Book and Quill
  • Any of the BiblioCraft-Added books (the Big Writing Book, the Recipe Book and the Slotted Book)
  • Books from other mods, such as the Thaumonomicon from Thaumcraft

Note: The books on the Bookcase when viewed in-game will always look the same, no matter what type of book is placed on the Bookcase.

Players can place books directly in the Bookcase by right-clicking with an accepted book on an empty slot; otherwise, the Bookcase's GUI. Right clicking the Bookcase without an accepted book or with an empty hand will also open the storage GUI.

The Bookcase can be used as an alternative to the vanilla Bookshelf for enchanting purposes, where a full Bookcase will function as two Bookshelves, and a half-full Bookcase will function as only one Bookshelf.

This block can be made from any of the 6 different vanilla woods and will look like the wood that is used. With the BiblioWoods addon installed, the Bookcase can be crafted out of woods from other mods as well.
