    The equal probability for enchanted books sounds a bit OP to me, I like the idea of being abe to get cool loot from bookshelves, but finding sharpness V or something like that in a village library shouldn't be a thing.

    I like the enchanted books influence the enchantment table. It means you need to craft the books with the table (assuming you didn't just find them outright, now that fishing for them is no longer a thing), slowly working the enchantment table up to full strength. This is an investment in experience (for level 1 enchanted books) as much as raw resources. It is also a useful thing to do with enchantment books I don't have use for.

     

    Currently, I never build the enchantment table without the full set of bookshelves, so the leveling only is a concern with respect to my available experience.

    Maybe you could find maps that villagers put in there!!!

    This would be a much game changing additions. I mean, crafting table now had it's cousins. Stonecutter already died before but made a comeback. The bookshelves, without the enchantment table setup, are just for decorations. Waste of books and wood. But their name is a complete nonsense when they cannot perform what they're supposed to do. This will be very useful for map makers and survival! A shelve filled with potion recipe books? Crafting recipes? Marco Polo books with coordinates? Yow! The library in the stronghold will now be a go-to area. Or the shelves on the kunwarian's houses. Their shelves will either have nothing, enchanted books, recipe books, books of coordinates (like explorer maps, but rarer). They will now be put in the pedestal and receive the attention they truly deserve.

    What about every enchanted book have a different texture on the bookshelf?

    It would be easier to know where every book is and it would get even more beautiful

    And maybe you could put the books you and your friends or (just you wrote) on the book shelf so one you make a book shef it should be bare until you put books on it it could make more adventures possible as in one your searching libares some books could have maps or secrets in them that could lead to many more secrets and would make the game more exciting!!!

    Small tweaks, and consistent with how you'd expect them to go.

    Frankly, I'd just love to see the GUI at minimum; makes more sense (to me) that shelves would be a container that you can put books in.

    Cool idea! Idk if this has been suggested yet but since surrounding a enchantment table with bookshelfs boost the enchants perhaps if you put certain enchanted books in the surrounding bookshelfs it will boost the chance of getting that enchantment. For example putting alot of Fire Aspect books in the bookshelfs will boost the chance of your tools being enchanted with Fire Aspect if that makes sense.

    Not sure if this has been said yet, but this should include warped and crimson wood too.

    Maybe there could be warped and crimson bookshelves as well. They could be a little different from regular bookshelves with an effect or something.

    I think that the slots of the GUI,must be at least 5-6 not three,thus  you could store more enchanted books in it.

    I feel that this would be an amazing addition to minecraft! But if the bookshelves powered redstone this idea could improve even more. A feature such as this one would be very helpful to us redstone builders! Overall i think that this is an amazing idea and should definitely be added to minecraft!

    Love this idea! But I think you should also be able to put maps in it
