Book one can be found shortly after the forest, I think, but book three comes quite a bit later.

The last book is quite late on the islands. I figured I had missed one until I finally found the last one.

I found book 1 in the Wyre rookery.

Still missing book 3.

So I got all the books, and I'm still having trouble solving this puzzle. So, one question: are you supposed to be able to give the books to the statues? The puzzle says that each of them is reading a book, which I assumed meant I was supposed to place a book in each statue's offering, but the game tells me I can't place the book there. I'm just wondering whether that's a bug.

The puzzle has a silly quirk in that you can only place the books into the correct positions, which makes solving it trivial.

Really? Huh. Well, I guess that means I haven't figured out the puzzle as well as I thought I had. I knew that at least one of my assumptions was wrong, so I guess it should be easy to figure out which one now.

Got it. I had assumed that only the statue on the far right had open eyes, but figured I might be wrong with that. Guess I was.

Also, I couldn't figure out what the fourth drink was. I couldn't remember whether it was one of the items initially given by Maureen, but was thinking that if it was, it was water. Nope.
