The 📚 meaning is Books. It is also known as Stack Of Books and Pile Of Books. This emoji always shows several books. 3 books are shown on all platforms, except Microsoft, where 4 books are shown. The layout of the books varies greatly from platform to platform. Every now and then the books are displayed from the side, from above or in 3D. The colors of the books also varies greatly by platform. However, the books are always presented in different colors. You can use the 📚 emoji very well when talking about books. An example would be, “I’m just reading the latest 📚 from …” or “Have you seen my math📚?” This emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 and thus in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
