Persona 5 Book Guide – Locations & Rewards

Persona 5 Book Guide - Locations & Rewards
Persona 5 features a wealth of books that you can discover and read, each offering unique benefits and rewards. If you want to know the location of every book and the rewards for reading each book, be sure to check out our Persona 5 Book Guide. Much like previous Persona games you’ll have to wait some time before the bulk of the games features and mechanics open to you. For the first few hours you’re forced to follow a linear progression path as the game introduces you to the various characters and key locations of the story. After you’ve got the ability to explore in a more free roam capacity, you can begin engaging in exciting and rewarding side activities such as books.

This Persona 5 Book Guide focuses on the different books you can discover and read across the game. They can be found in a variety of locations, from clearing out old rubbish to purchasing from stores or even renting from the schools library. Books in Persona 5 are incredibly valuable. They can offer a variety of rewards such as new fast travel locations or increasing social states like Knowledge.

There is a small chance that you can read through a book whilst on the train to school in the mornings, if you’re lucky enough to find a seat. As this time is usually passed by the travel distance alone, the opportunity to perform an extra action within the same time frame is invaluable. Quick lesson here, always make sure you have a fresh book on you. As soon as you’ve finished reading one, make your next location the library to rent a new book before the next trip to school.
