Linking Books and Descriptive Books allow for transport across (and sometimes within) dimensions (( see talk page )). They will take damage if dropped on the ground, can be protected from this damage with a Book Stand or Lectern, and does not follow the user linking with it.
Linking and Descriptive Books can be opened by right-clicking while holding one in the Player's hand. The Age the book links to can be entered by clicking on the Linking Panel inside the book, however, the book will drop from the Player's inventory when they teleport. As a book lays on the ground, it will slowly accumulate damage that cannot be repaired. This can be avoided by placing the book inside a Book Stand. The Book Stand can be right-clicked with a book to place the book inside, and an occupied Book Stand can be right-clicked to open the book to click the Linking Panel.
It is created by holding an Unlinked Link Book in the hand and right-clicking with it. The link created permanently captures both the link location and the direction the user is facing when the link is created.
