Presumably, she is a very NAUGHTY one, because when her library collapses on her and burns during an earthquake she dies and goes...TO HELL. A very special hell reserved for naughty librarians.
But Perdition has bitten off more than it can chew and this badass bibliophile is about teach Gehenna itself a lesson it won't soon forget, as she embarks upon: The Ascendance of the Bookworm.
In most isekai shows there is a social outcast getting yanked/summoned/reincarnated/teleported/excreted into another reality where the protagonist realizes something along the lines of "all those years of playing World of Warcraft taught me something about courage, tactics and the human condition."
The Ascendance of the Bookworm is not a typical isekai as this young lady has no mad gaming skills and is transmigrated into the body of a very frail, illiterate 5 year old. Well, not quite illiterate, she has all of her memories of life in Japan, but the Japanese language is not a useful skill in Faux Middle Ages Earth. She is so desperate for something to read she resolves to write a book. But she wants it to be in the local language so she has to find out if there IS an alphabet and then locate someone in this virtually bookless hellhole who can teach her what the letters are...but first...she's going to make herself some soap.
You see, all those years of being well read, having eclectic interests, and enjoying hands on hobbies have taught her a little something about crafting.
This is varsity isekai, where you've got to show your work.
Oh my, this is delightful, please don't let them mess this up.

Today's episode (wtf is that fruit?) with her trying and abandoning papyrus was well done and telling.

That's when she switches from just asking to be given stuff to being determined to make it herself no matter what obstacles crop up.
