"Always by the book! I read your book. It's a short one."
Sabine Wren, mocking Imperial stormtroopers[src]

Books were written works bounded together in print. In the Galactic Empire they were rare, as most preferred other means of storage, such as data-tapes or flimsiplast. Agent Kallus was surprised to observe a shelf of books when he visited the office of Captain Zataire on the Lawbringer.[1] During the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance to Restore the Republic adhered to the White Book, a field guide detailing procedures and regulations set by Alliance High Command.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Shelved along the wall, and sorted by topic and author, were book—not data-tapes or flimsiplast replicas, but collector's hard copies, ink printed on paper."
―Agent Kallus observing the bookshelves of Captain Zataire[src]

The concept of printed books being scarce in the world of Star Wars originated in the Expanded Universe in titles such as The New Jedi Order: Force Heretic II: Refugee. Though these titles are now considered part of Star Wars Legends and not canon, the idea of printed books being scarce remains in the new canon continuity.
