Another update Minecraft 1.20 is set to add is the highly anticipated chiseled bookshelf. Rather than just being a visually appealing decorative block, this bookshelf is able to hold up to 6 books of any type and thus store them more efficiently than multiple chests. With the ability to store written books, enchanted books, and even books and quills, players will now be able to access these items with ease, providing much-needed immersion in such a classic game.

A new pink biome

The Cherry Blossom biome is another feature coming to Minecraft in the 1.20 update.

The Sakura trees provide a new source of wood that is light pink, allowing players to create unique and eye-catching structures. The Cherry Blossom biome also adds new flora and fauna, such as new flowers, bushes, and even new mobs.
