On the day Urano Motosu’s biggest wish of landing a job in a library comes true, she dies. Her last thought is that she regrets not reading more books… When she wakes up again, she finds herself in another world as a young girl named Maine. The story is set in a city called Ehrenfest that reminds her of medieval times but is in fact in another world where nobles with magical powers control everything. In the strict hierarchic system of this world Maine works hard to try to get her hands on books.
