Read the section on "Bibliomania" in the Paper Master class. Commit it to memory. But beyond the rules, play it up, exaggerate it, and have fun with it. If you want to play Yomiko, those rules should not feel like a restriction; they're just a quantification of some essential truths about the character.
Beyond books, remember that Yomiko is generally shy and gentle, but also perseveres beyond all odds when she's after something she wants, be it to rescue a friend or get a book she wants to read.
Yomiko is very protective, to the point of violence if necessary, of her glasses.
Always ask nicely, and always say "please."
In the R.O.D OAV, she appears to be reading an original, untranslated copy of The Immortal Beloved, hence the ability to read/write German (I think it's in German; if it's not, let me know). She could possibly be able to speak or read other languages as well. I would take points out of Research if you want to increase her number of known languages.
