This method has a longer set-up then the first paper/emerald trade given to you, but allows you to only reload twice instead of 29 times, which will likely be preferable as this game can sometimes take a while to load.

In the new tutorial world, leave the initial tutorial area and go to the second building on the right, the one with the enchanting table (we are skipping the emerald you get for learning about trading, as he won't be necessary). In the enchanting room, grab the axe out of the chest, and hack all the bookshelves to bits, collecting the books. You should have 108 books after this.

Now, go to the castle. When you are in the courtyard looking towards the open back of the castle, there is a room to the left on the bottom level. Go in here and check the left wall for more bookcases. Hack them to pieces as well. You should now have over 144 books.

Find the Librarian in the castle (there might be one or two), whom are the villagers wearing a white shirt. One of them SHOULD be trading 12 books for an emerald (occasionally he will not spawn, forcing you to restart the tutorial for this method). Do NOT trade with him until you have saved the game. Now, trade all your books. He only does 8 trades at a time, but if you leave the menu and speak to him again he will have more emeralds for trade assuming you have 12 books available.

Reload the save and trade everything again. Reload again and you will get the achievement mid-way through trading everything. You have only had to reload twice, instead of the 29 times required by the paper-emerald deal in the second tutorial area.
