33-year-old Hanada Nanako is the manager of a bookstore and loves books with a passion. She and her husband Ken, who was a former colleague, have been married for four years. However, their relationship has turned frosty and they are now on the verge of divorce. Nanako also faces difficulty at work. Paperback books are no longer as saleable as much as she would like them to be with the growing popularity of digital formats. It seems as if she is hurtling to rock bottom in life. One day, Nanako signs up with online dating site AU×AU and writes a note in her profile, “I’ll recommend the book that is right for you now.” After going through numerous dates, Nanako hits it off with a filmmaker with a cute smile called Endo. She starts seeing him regularly and gradually becomes conscious of him as he touches her heart. As Nanako encounters people that she would never have met and earnestly introduces books to each one of them, how will she look at herself and what kind of life will she decide to lead?
