There are numerous books found within Genshin Impact that feature short stories or reveal history and lore about the world of Teyvat.

Players can find books by exploring Teyvat. Some books are received from NPCs through dialogue or quest rewards. Others can be bought from Wanwen Bookhouse in Liyue. When collected, the majority of books go straight into the Archive instead of appearing in the inventory.

Players can see the books they've collected by opening the Archive on the Paimon menu, and navigating to 'Books'. For the rest of the books not considered part of collections, they can be found under the Quest Items tab in the inventory.
