Since i need to make 5 of these for my army, whats a good way to do it?. I was think of doing plasticard with green stuff but i also need to put it on my model some how
What have you guys done?
Plasticard w/ green stuff sounds good.
You could have the models simply holding the books (kind of like the Canoness), they could be reading from them, or they could have them attached to the belt.

Games Workshop has a bits set of books. About four of them were the right size to put on the hips of my Sister Superiors; a couple of the larger ones could perhaps be used on the base, though it would not personally fit my aesthetic.
I used some bits of flat metal flashing, cut them to be small rectangles. I made small cuts with a scalpel on 3 sides, to make it look like a book, then primed it, and painted it red, with bleached bone on the sides that were scored with the scalpel.
I then scraped the skull off of the rosarius I that hangs from the belt of sisters with helmets (because I use bolters on my VSS, not any CC weap /pistol combo). I then glued my little red book over the rosarius. It looks like the chain for the rosarius is there to hold the book.
I personally wouldn't make a book from scratch.
GW consolidated most of their book-bits into this.

I don't glue the book to the model.
I just stand it on or directly next to her base.
The Good Book is an exceptionally powerful piece of wargear,
so I make a point of explaining it clearly, and making sure it
is aways visually represented.
The book also helps me keep track of the Vet Upgrade
when she is identically equipped to her squad.
A LITTLE OFF TOPIC:
Similarly, I also created two separate "Braziers of Holy Fire".
Basically a long-handled torch that I lay next to the model until I use it.
After use, I simply remove it from the table, and I don't have to worry
about remembering if I used it or not.
My Seraphim Vet usually gets a Brazier, because she gets such great
opportunity to place it optimally. It is easy for her to kill 10 enemy points with it.
Sometimes I'll give one to a Cannoness if she has a Jump Pack,
and sometimes I might give one to a Celestian Vet with Evis.
It goes well with the Evis.
I never used more than two Braziers per game.
If I used a priest, I might consider giving him one.

I don't think the Book needs to be a book. It could be a data slate or engraved stone tablets.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
