Depending on the type of player you are, gathering leather could be troubling. In order to get leather in vanilla Minecraft, they must be dropped from certain mobs.

Cows, mooshrooms, horses, donkeys, mules, and llamas drop 0-2 leather, while hoglins drop 0-1 leather. You can also craft leather from four rabbit hides.

Combine the paper and leather in the crafting table to create a book. Follow along with the below recipe!
