Jongsuk is the pinnacle of mediocrity, with nothing to show for himself except his penchant for reading. One day, he finds a mysterious book at his favorite used book store. The book "tells" him to write about his experience in its blank pages, and in return shows him a related piece of information. Little did he know, the passages Jongsuk read in the books transferred right into his system, endowing with new abilities he never thought possible.

The plot is quite original, the character are quite well written and the art is decent. But reading this leave a deep feeling of frustration. the potential of the book is tremendous and the main character exploit only 20%. Moreover there is an issue with the huge number of subplots which can create a feeling of being lost.
Pretty good until chapter 121. Honestly it would had be better if they just ended there, but they added some evil organization shit and the story loss its way.
Mistranslation here- he gets experience points by doing things and WRITING about them. And then he writes what skills he wants and exchanges the experience points for them. It’s not like he’s getting experience through reading, he writes things that happen to him in a diary and gets experience points. “Dear Diary, I found a weird diary” +25xp There’s a little more to it, but I’m not trying to spoil it for future readers. I do appreciate that, to an extent, he has to work to develop the skills on his own, though, which is better than a lot of similar stories. Definitely stick with it for a few chapters, because it’s lame early on. The start doesn’t lend it any favors. And there are plot holes and inconsistencies later on too, but, you know, it’s not that bad. As far as art goes- the cover art isn’t exactly what you’re going to get inside the story. MC, imo, looks like a dyke but, you know. The art is decent, if inconsistent at times. Though, it gets annoying that the ‘speech’ bubbles and ‘thought’ bubbles are hard to tell apart. All the characters besides MC are pretty flat personality-wise. The “I’ll tell my father” bully, the “girl-next-door” with the unreasonable crush, the “fat nerd friend” and etc. Just trope embodiments, I don’t care about a single one and probably neither will anyone else. Tl;dr: I like it! I think it’s fun! But it’s not all that good, actually, like, in execution, since I can easily find as many faults as I can find positives, if not more.
