Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore: A Novel

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore - Robin Sloan LOVED this book. This is condensed literary joy for those who live at the intersection of book and tech nerd-doms. I smiled almost all the way through, I loved the characters, I loved the puzzles, I loved the jokes (perhaps a little heavy on the inside yuk-yuks at the beginning but that's my only criticism).

The 5 stars and all the love are there because there's nary a misstep in this book, it is perfection for what it is. And though it touches on important subjects (old business models not wanting to make way for new; the cyclical nature of things) it is a quick, light and fun read and not a heavy tome full of deep insights into the human condition. It is there to be enjoyed and to put a smile upon your face!
