Here we will create a telegram bot which will send random book of given genre to user.
We will use an open source project “draw your bot” (https://github.com/Tsitko/drawyourbot) to generate a bot. It allows to draw a bot structure in draw.io instead of coding it.
So we need to clone drawyourbot project and install its requirements (the instructions of how to install requirements are here: https://github.com/Tsitko/drawyourbot#install-requirements).
And we also need to register our bot in telegram (the instruction is here: https://core.telegram.org/bots#6-botfather)
As we have a project we need a library (books sorted by genre). For this bot I will use a very small library like that:
And we also need a function which will get one of those book so we could send it to user. Here is that function code (you should put it into bots directory to the file book_funcs.py):

And the only thing left is todraw a bot structure:
You need to change bot_token to your bots token and if you are using your own function, you need to change _functions_book_funcs::find_book(genre) to your own function.
And as you are done, you need just to generate a bot (instructions: https://github.com/Tsitko/drawyourbot#generating-bot-code).
And you have a bot which you can run and test:
