Ascendance Of A Bookworm Storyline
When a sickly girl is suddenly obsessed with inventing new things, her family and friends are at a loss. “What happened in Myne?” they ask themselves, without suspecting that the answer is not a “what”, but a “who”: Urano Motosu, a book-loving library worker who died in an earthquake in Tokyo and somehow found herself in Myne’s body!
And since Myne’s world is still in a medieval stage where books can only be owned by the elite, the new Myne wants to do everything possible to make her beloved books accessible to the masses in the time she has left.
