Though the Bible is made up of 66 books, there are other books which were not added. There are reasons for their omission. Some of the authors could not be verified. Also, the books in the Bible follow some prophecies which must tally with the rest of the books already added and so those which went off the subject were taken out.

Some of the books which are available in the Catholic version of the Bible include Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus (Sirach), Baruch (includes Letters of Jeremiah), I and II Maccabees, and additional sections for the books of Daniel and Esther.
