A blank book is a miscellaneous item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


Blank books are created by giving "seditious materiel" to the Book Chute in The Sink. The Book Chute will accept (among other things) large burned books, large destroyed books, large ruined books, large scorched books, small burned books, small destroyed books, small ruined books, small scorched books, and pre-War books.

Blank books are used in the workbench crafting recipe for various skill books in Old World Blues;


  • The houses in Higgs Village have plenty of books.
  • The library of American High School in the X-8 research center has lots of books.
  • There are also a large amount of books in Nelson, in the house next to the barracks.


  • 25 blank books are required to create one skill book.
  • The exchange of books is 1 to 1, no matter the size of the old book. A total of 325 books is enough to produce all of the recipes.
