Ferdinand, the temple's head priest, puts a young girl named Myne into a deep sleep and probes her mind regarding her past and her abnormal love for books. He sees that Myne used to be known as Motosu Urano from another land and time. She loved every kind of literature in existence, but she was suddenly crushed to death under a pile of books. As she died, she wished that she would be able to read all kinds of books in her next life. She hears a small voice crying out in pain before awakening in the body of the young girl named Myne who is bedridden due to a fever. Confused about her surroundings, she asks her new mother, Effa, and elder sister, Tuuli, where she can find books to read, but they don't seem to understand. When they leave to prepare dinner, Myne searches the house, but finds out it is only a small wooden cabin with no books in sight, or even any paper, causing her to cry. After a few days, the only convenience Myne can find is by putting a pin in her long hair to keep it up, which surprises Tuuli. When Effa asks Myne to accompany her to the food market, she agrees, believing it to be a way to find books outside her home. Looking around town, she realizes that she lives in the slightly impoverished side of a classic medieval town, as well as that her father, Gunther, is a guard along the town border. When they reach the market, Myne finds a single book enclosed in a locked glass case at a stall. She asks the owner if she can see it, but the man tells her that books are rare and only nobles are allowed to handle them. Undeterred, Myne says that if she cannot buy books anywhere, she will have to make them herself.
