When breaking a block with an enchanted book with Silk Touch on it, the broken block will drop as itself, as if the enchanted book was a tool other than a shovel or pickaxe.
This is unexpected, as the enchantment on books did not actually have any effect when using the book itself in previous versions, and is stored in the StoredEnchantments NBT tag instead of the tag that is used for "proper" enchantments.
Also, when breaking ice with such a book, it leaves water behind. Normally, when breaking ice with silk touch, it would always leave air behind.
