Motosu Urano, a book-loving college student who just got her Librarian certification and was supposed to enter the job of her dreams after graduation, was killed during a massive earthquake crushing her underneath a pile of her own massive collection of books.

Wishing for reincarnation in order to read even more, she got reincarnated to a world with a low literacy level and very few books, limited only to the nobility of the world. As she reincarnated as 5-year-old daughter of a lowly soldier, Maine, no matter how much she wants to read, there is no way there are any books around. If there are no books then what do you do? You make them yourself of course... What her goal is, to become a librarian no matter what, and to live a life surrounded by books. For starters she begins from making them.

I am a sucker for Isekai even though I usually think the stories are sub-par. However, this story has me wrapped around its finger.

The characters are written very well especially the MC. She does not go into the world with the standard OP powers it seems like all Isekai protagonists have. She has even more disadvantages than advantages but she still strives toward her goal. Plus the dad becomes such a great character later on in the story.

It gives me all the feels. Sometimes when I turn the page and see the next scene my heart skips a beat. You don't think that a character read more

I think this is a fairly good story and especially compared to other stories that feature a female MC reincarnating at a young age. Really, There's just one issue.

That's the boys. I don't like them and feel they take too much screen time. I am more interested in the MC making all these inventions with the help of her sister or by herself.

Something is really interesting about how the story portrays medieval time. It's more of what a realistic look at the time period then you see in most stories.

I was also wanting her to start making her products and become a read more

Surprisingly, it is incredibly well done, and might as well be one of the best "modern isekai" animes and mangas out there.

You see, the standard mistake a modern isekai does is going through routine processes of game like abilities, guild ranks and so on. Sometimes it has few core ideas, but once those played out, it starts falling apart.

This is not the case here. It is one of the titles where rather than focusing on power fantasies, explosions and harems, the script decided to stick to the story and see it through. The world looks incredibly believable, albeit definitely quite tough, characters have convincing personalities read more
