Books is a Volantene sellsword and a member of the Windblown.
Books is a notorious reader; he always seems to have his nose poked in some crumbly scroll. He considers Daenerys Targaryen to be both murderous and mad.
Books is part of the Siege of Astapor. He plays dice with Old Bill Bone, Beans and Archibald Yronwood after the siege.
