Bookcraft is the body of writings that is read for its own sake, rather than for knowledge. This can be tales, songs, plays or many things.

EretideEdit

The first bookcraft was written by Sumerians not long after they began to write. While at first they only needed to write lists and ledgers, they later wrote songs to god and tales. The best known of these is the Tale of Gilgamesh.

The earliest English bookcraft is in tales like Beowulf or Layamon's Brut, though there are also songs by Cædmon. Even books anent the eretide are sometimes held to be bookcraft, with Bede's Church Eretide of the English Folk being foremost among them.
