An enchanted book is an item that allows players to use an anvil to add enchantments to specific items. This article is about the book that can enchant items; for the artifact that can enchant allied mobs in Minecraft Dungeons, see Enchanter’s Tome.
Enchanted books can be obtained as part of the “treasure” category by fishing with a fishing rod; the book has the equivalent of a level 30 enchantment from an enchantment table, but treasure enchantments are available, and the chance of multiple enchantments is not reduced.
Enchanted books are bought for 1 book and 5-64 emeralds in Bedrock Edition, with treasure enchantments (such as Mending) doubling the cost.
Vindicators and pillagers spawning from raids have a small chance of dropping an enchanted book with a level 30 enchantment, which could be a treasure.
Enchanting a book on an enchantment table gives it a lower chance of getting multiple enchantments and a lower “enchantability level” than most other items. Treasure enchantments, such as Mending, cannot be obtained from an enchantment table.
Bartering, chest loot inside a bastion remnant, fishing, and raid loot are the only ways to get Soul Speed enchanted books; they cannot be obtained through enchanting or trading. Players can barter with piglins for Soul Speed books by using or throwing gold ingots.
Enchanted books are the only way to get certain enchantments on certain tools in Survival, such as Unbreaking on shields. To use an enchanted book, the player must first place an item in the first slot of an anvil, then a book in the second slot. Enchanted books have a shine effect on their sprite.
Enchanted books can increase the strength of enchantments like Sharpness and Thorns. The table below only shows netherite tools and armor, but any type can be enchanted. Enchanted books can apply the following enchantments to items (the table below only shows gear and armor):
In creative mode, the player can enchant any item with any enchantment, allowing any applied effects to manifest. For example, a stick can be enchanted with Silk Touch to allow the player to dig grass blocks successfully, and the enchanted item can still be used in Survival mode without losing any enchantments.

For more information on enchanted books, see Bedrock Edition level format/Item format. Enchanted books use the NBT tag StoredEnchantments to indicate the enchantment. The allowed sub-tags are id and lvl, which are equivalent to the format of the Enchantments tag used for items.
At an enchanting table, enchant an item, then apply an enchantment to it.
Enchanted books can now be used with a limited number of items in survival mode, and librarian villagers now sell them for 5u201364 emeralds each. Enchanted books can also be combined to create higher level variations of the same level.
