    Current Version:
    4.1 (Release) (I updated it to 1.8)

    What is it for?
    This plugin allows players to store books, maps, and more into those once useless bookshelves - just like chests! It encourages players to write books and store them in shelves, and can build onto your economy with libraries and bookstores by using the built in Vault support. Unlimited bookshelves make rule walls a thing of the past; store rule books inside an unlimited shelf, and every player can have one! Book Shelves are opened like a chest, by right clicking on the shelf. This opens a chest-like inventory that only allows the storage of books, maps, records, and paper. The items are stored in an SQLite database, so no setup is required to use this plugin! MySQL support is optional. These are just a few of the many features of BookShelf.

    What are the Features?
    • Store books, maps, records (music discs), and paper in bookshelves!
    • Right click on shelves to open a familiar chest-like inventory!
    • Configurable top/bottom access. Disable it, and hide the shelves in your floor!
    • Create unlimited shelves that give out infinite copies! - Great for rule books, libraries, newspapers, city maps, and more!
    • Create shop shelves that work with any Economy! (Using Vault)
    • Combine unlimited and shop shelves to create a shop that has unlimited copies! - Great for server stores!
    • Create a donation shelf type that allows the owner to add/remove books, while other players can only add books! Good for library submissions!
    • You can only store books, maps, paper, and records.
    • Items maintain their position in the shelf; none of that "auto-sorting" business.
