Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore - Robin Sloan

"Why do you love books so much?

Well, actually, I love books because books are my best friends."


Now here is a book for book lovers. Reading it made me happy!


Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore might be my favorite book of the year.  This is a story about people who love books. There's a mystery to solve, and it's full of very clever, nerdy, Google-world stuff. These characters are characters, and they gave me many laugh-out-loud moments.  The writing is so sharp and clever--it was fun to read just for the joy of discovering what witty words would come next. 


I thought this book was perfect.
