Urano, a bookworm who had finally found a job as a librarian at a university, was sadly killed shortly after graduating from college.

Amazing world building

The most amazing part of fantasy kind of stories is when the author is able to catch you with of a somehow touchy-realistic environments even while describing nonsensical phenomena like magic or stuff...
That's exactly what this kind of novel is like. It's realistic enough for you to easily sympathize with almost every character in it.
Although it is not a perfect work, it is one of the best fantasy novel I have ever read.
Materpiece level: 10/10

Definitely interesting, with a slowish pace

Note: I've read up to chapter 35

This is a bit of an odd one. I really enjoy it, but I don't mind the slowish pace and the "action" being either someone trying to make books or social interactions between characters, so maybe it isn't for everyone. I do think that it's well written though, and blastron01's doing a good job with the translation, at least in terms of how easily it reads in english.

If I had to compare the feel of this to something, it'd probably be somewhat similar to Koshaku Reijo no Tashinami (Novel) but with book-making instead of financial stuff.

I like the pace of this a lot though, it's kinda slow with some small things happening, and then it swells into a climax, and then goes back down. I realize that describes most stories, but I think this one does a particularly good job with it.

I'd say that if you're looking for something entertaining and a little intellectual, this is a pretty solid choice.
