Papermaking is easy to do in Minecraft but you have to gather resources for it. Paper is made from cane sugar. For sugar, look for water sources. Sugar can be in any water source that has sand blocks around it. Sugarcane grows as a stalk and a single stalk can have 1-4 sections. Each portion yields one sugar. You can add and get more which makes it an easy renewable resource.

Book vs magic book

Enchanted books are different from the standard books made by crafts using the craft board. Enchanted books are used to apply a particular enchantment to a machine or object using the anvil. Players can create a magic book by placing it on a magic board, or get it from chests, by trading with small towns, and even by fishing.


Books have a decorative purpose when used to create a bookshelf but they are also useful if you are planning to use them. You can play Minecraft without enjoying anything. Distilling is far more important but since you are fighting witches, phantoms, and a variety of ever – growing zombies, it’s a good idea to have a weapon.
