So basically, how about you can craft an ink sac and bottle to an make ink bottle. And then you can place that, and if you right click it with a feather, the feather turns into an ink dipped feather.
How about you can place books, and when placed they lie open, and if your right clicked one with an ink dipped feather, it brings up a writing GUI. Once you right in it, from then on the book has black lines and if you right click it, it will show what you wrote. Also, you can right click bookshelves, it will show 9 slots. You can put stacked blank books in, or written books (which won't stack, and give you what your wrote in them when you break them) and the bookshelf also has a slot that if you put a written book in will show what your wrote.
1. I think there is a mod for that
2. Mojang has already spoken about that they might implement it.
But still i do think it would be great to have a prober use for the books!
I have also thought about might finding spell tomes and stuff like that in dungeons, but I am not sure I would support that myself!
uh... I don't really support the "magical" movement of Minecraft, not because it's bad, but because it supports the idea that Minecraft is an RPG which it absolutely is not, and it's annoying when people say it is. I guess that would be kind of cool, but DON'T LET STEVE CAST MAGIC HIMSELF at most, the spell tomes could unlock new enchantments or something, but Steve being a mage is just not right.
