[Book Title] — In-game description

Books are items that can be collected in DayZ Standalone. There are currently 145 of them that are fully readable, cover-to-cover, in-game.

A few blank pages can be torn out of each book you find for the purpose of writing notes or starting a fire.

How to Read[edit | edit source]

Reading a book is easy: it must be in your inventory, and you must equip it to a slot on your item hotbar. Once it's been assigned to a slot, simply press the corresponding key for that slot and the book will open for reading.

Note: As of 0.61, the actual reading function is not working properly at the moment. You will not be able to get past the cover page.
