The guest guy right above me is correct. There is a thing called "empty map". If you press it, you got a map.

You can't read books in mcpe. You can only read them in the pc edition. You can only use them to make bookshelves which are only for decoration.

In order to write in a book, you have to craft a "Book and Quill". You cannot write in a regular book. To craft a Book and Quill, you must have a book and a feather. Unfortunately, the Book and Quill I not available in Pocket Edition yet. Sorry. :(
