Stardew Valley’s much anticipated Patch 1.6 added and tweaked a huge number of things in the farming simulator. One of the additions that most caught people’s attention has been the Books of Power, single-use items that buff the player character in some way.

There are 26 books of power currently known. Here’s how to get them all.

18 Books of Power can be purchased

The Bookseller is a new NPC who visits Pelican Town occasionally – keep an eye on the calendar so you don’t miss him. On days he’s there he can be found in the area north of JojaMart. As well as selling books of power, he will trade the Lost Books you can find for items.

The Bookseller’s stock will change every time he visits so be sure to check back regularly to get all the Books of Power.
