Based on 1.11 decompiled using MCP 9.35 rc1
The problem is that the method net.minecraft.item.ItemWrittenBook.resolveContents(ItemStack, EntityPlayer) tests if the player is holding the item in the mainhand and only if this is the case sends a SPacketSetSlot packet.
This condition does not really make sense because the item is modified anyways, the client inventory just won't be updated. This can be seen by dropping the book, picking it back up and opening it in the offhand again.
The best way to fix this would probably be to remove this condition.
