With her fading breath, she wishes to reborn in a world where she can read books forever. Her last wish is granted. When she wakes up after her death, she finds herself in the body of a five-year-old. Myne is the small weak girl where Urano finds herself. Myne is the girl from the world where books are scarce. Those are available only to the prestigious aristocracies. But she is weak. Even the world she reborns has a meager literacy rate. Most ordinary people can’t have books. They have to pay a tremendous amount to buy one. So, Myne chooses to make her own books. She resolves: If there are no books, she’ll just have to make them!
Myne never forgets her past. She can retain her memories from her previous life. At last, she concentrated on her decision to create and print the books and read once again.
