Persona 4 Golden Books Guide

In P4G, books are a great way to increase your stats. So, to earn some free stats without working for them you can get to collecting all of the books through our Persona 4 Golden Books guide. Detailed below are the names, locations, and boosted stats of each book found in P4 Golden.

Persona 4 Golden Books

The most common methods of acquiring books are to either purchase them from the Yomenaido Bookstore in the Shopping District, South, or to earn them with quests or events.

There are some books hidden behind Strength requirements and some have a limited window for you to get them like the ones from the summer festival.

And remember you need to complete all chapters of the book to get your stat increase.

Normally you can only read one chapter at a time, but if you have read “Hyperspeed Reading” you can go through 2 chapters in one reading session.

If not for the stats then players could also try to read all books in P4 Golden to get the Reader King Accessory, which boosts the wearer’s Magic by 10 stat points.

Now let’s come to unique books or books that are locked behind events and timers. Make sure to save before important dates or a day before events to come back if you miss out.

The first book “The Witch Detective” requires 3 Strength or less on exactly 29th May, and to get this you should have rescued Kanji or else you will miss out on this book.

The next one is “Poly-Land” and it requires 4 Strength on 15th July. The way to do this is to go to your room and wait for the call from Kou, who will invite you to a study date.

To get the book you have to respond with you are allergic to Algebra.

The final Strength locked book is “The O-Cha Way” and it can be acquired on any strength rating from 1-9 on 9th August.

Two more books that are event locked are, “The divine way”, which can be unlocked on the 21st August during the summer festival and “The Ramen Way” which is received once players have eaten at Aiya’s restaurant eight times.
